Inspiration Starts Here
Inspirer is a Los Angeles based print and digital publication that celebrates inspirational and groundbreaking people through original written word, photography, videos, and more. From iconic entertainers to unsung community activists, everyone has a story to be shared and every story matters. We believe that there’s more to an actress than her latest diet, that there’s more to female musicians than a sexualized video hit. We dig deeper to share the meaningful stories that inspire others.
We’re about women. We’re by women. We’re for women.
We Bring Classic Rock To Millennials.
We’ve taken notice of Gen Y’s interest and love for these artists – a love and interest our staff here at Inspirer shares — and we do our best to nurture that interest by keeping an ongoing dialogue on our platforms about members of the classic rock community.
More and more millennials are flocking to that specific era of rock music; they’re buying vinyl, they’re taking to Twitter to find like minds, and creating entire Tumblr and Instagram profiles dedicated to these bands who were releasing music decades before they were born.
Inspirer was founded by women who connected through music of the ‘70s. There’s something there that has helped us along the way to become the people we are, and it runs deep in our souls. It means that much to us, and to our readers to be able to feature those artists who have made such significant and prolific contributions to music over the years.
Our Fall 2016 print issue featured a cover story & interview with legendary rock artists, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart. We also featured interviews with Pat Benatar, Lita Ford, Lucius and more. We’ve recently done press and event coverage for Stevie Nicks, Carly Simon, Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, Heart, Melissa Etheridge, Mudcrutch and more.
A year ago, Desarae Gabrielle & Ashley McFaul were two 20-somethings with one goal: to create a safe space for groundbreaking women to share their stories the way they were meant to be told – in their own words. In early 2016, Inspirer was born, and has since been fully curated in-house by a handful of like-minded women.
