Male/Female Duos Where Female is Boss


Recommended Posts

I wrote "boss" for headline purposes, but I'm thinking more about duos where the woman is the creative force. The typical setup for an intergender duo is female singer (sometimes lyricist) with male instrumentalist/songwriter/mastermind. Eurythmics are a classic example.

Our writer April found a duo that distorts this gender role, however. They are known as Hank & Cupcakes, and in this combo, Cupcakes runs the show (she writes the songs, does most of the singing, and plays drums). Hank is also much more likely to be the eye candy, with a tendency to take his shirt off. Here's April's interview:

A pic is attached.

Are there other duos out there where the woman is clearly the creative leader?
