About/Join Chicks with Picks


Chicks with Picks started with a vision. Pandy Raye and Rhonda Hitchcock realized that Phoenix has so many talented female musicians, of all genres, that needed to be heard! As two professional musicians, these two chicks set out to provide a platform for “up and coming” female singer/songwriters (acoustic, electric, duos and full bands) to showcase their talent. Many of these musicians don’t know where to turn to get on the right path to following their dream of performing their music.

Pandy Raye and Rhonda Hitchcock started Chicks With Picks in late October 2007. With only a handful of talented girls and weekly showcases. Chicks With Picks has now blossomed into an organization that has featured/helped over 350 artists (and growing). Chicks With Picks have held festivals featuring national acts and local talent annually called CHICKSTOCK™. As of November 2012, the organization hit over 1000 shows in just 5 years... and counting.

Chicks With Picks offers workshops on a regular basis that cover topics in every aspect of the music industry including professional songwriting, recording and music business mentoring. Also, to provide a resource to all of the Chicks that will help them grow to their fullest potential. Talent is the only prerequisite.

Chicks with Picks has been featured in numerous media spots including Phoenix Magazine, Phoenix Woman Magazine, Channel 3, Fox 10, AZMusicCafe.com, Arizona Weekly, NewTimes, USA Today, Mix 96.9, KNIX 102.5, KMLE 108 and many more.

Come join us at a show or contact us to know more. We take the guess work out for the venue and the artist. CHICKS ROCK!
