We Need Your Help!

Why Boxx Magazine?

To change the status quo of the music industry.
It is our goal to make Boxx not only the most comprehensive site for women in music but also the most encouraging site moving beyond barriers of genre, gender, age, race, or any other physical trait.
Music is about more than an image.
