Tanya Pearson is a Public Historian and Director of the Women of Rock Oral History Project, a collection of digital interviews and written transcripts documenting the lives and careers of (women-identified) rock musicians. A documentary film based on the interviews is currently in production. She will publish an oral history of rock music with University of Massachusetts Press in 2021, and Why Marianne Faithfull Matters, her contribution to the University of Texas Press’ Music Matters Series. Her work has appeared in Bust Magazine, Memoir Mixtapes, some blogs, and journals, but she remains largely unpublishable. She is a proponent of lesbiansim, aging, not eating animals, senior dog adoption, punk rock, and Judy Garland. When she's not working she enjoys writing, rock climbing, playing in her band Feminine Aggression, and watching The Golden Girls with her dog, Andrew.
