Brandi Carlile is the most nominated female artist at the upcoming 61st Grammy Awards with six nominations including Album Of The Year (By The Way, I Forgive You), Record Of The Year (“The Joke”), the song of the year (“The Joke”), Best Americana Album, Best American Roots Song and Best American Roots Performance. And yes, there is still time to get on the bandwagon.
There isn’t much not to like about Brandi Carlile. Her songs are straight forward and poignant. Her latest release, By the Way, I forgive you, Is highly excellent and top 20 worthy. For extra credit search out her epic cover version of Elton’s “60 Years On” from Live at Benaroya Hall with the Seattle symphony.
Soft Power, the soon to be released record from Doe Paoro is one we are very much looking forward to hearing. Based in Los Angeles, her blend of R&B, Pop, and soul is an exciting combination.
If Stevie Nicks played the harp, she would sound exactly like this. Yeah, exactly like this, and it’s great.
Beth Hart is a consistent favorite of ours. Here’s hoping a new record is just around the corner.
Doro raises the roof on this Heavy Metal Anthem. With apologies to Lizzie Gale, Doro, Decades into her career, is the reigning supreme goddess of Metal.
Often compared to Joan Jett, Lzzy Hale and Halestorm are the preeminent female led Rock and Roll band in the game. The new record, Vicious, is a delicious headbanging combination of Heavy Metal and good old fashioned Rock and Roll.
