some time last year I wrote a post highlighting some of my favorite female artists that I had been missing and wanting to release new music. Since then Corinne Bailey Rae, Vivian Green, Amerie and Kelis have made musical comebacks. The first mentioned is the only I truly enjoyed–to Kelis’ credit I have not yet heard Fleshtone, but I was hoping for more of the old Star Trak sound.
Faith has a project in the works and Jazmine Sullivan has a new song out also. So its safe to say my wishes for these artists to make new music are coming into fruition. However, there are a few more artists I’m putting an APB out on, check em out:
Alice Smith. I like to say if I could sing, I mean really sing– I want to sound like Alice. For Lovers, Dreamers and Me was released in 2006 but I don’t think I got into her until 07. Her voice is so bluesy yet folksy and very unique to me. Per her website, she’s been doing some live shows here and there. I believe I heard a new(ish) song earlier this year, but I’d really like to get a new studio album. Fave Song: “Love Endeavor.”
Emily King. Her debut East Side Story still gets rotation on my iPod and I’m really curious about why she dropped off the face of the earth! Fave song: “Alright.” Her cover of “Aint No Sunshine” is very good also, and that’s one of my favorite songs, ever.
Algebra Blessett. Purpose was one of those CDs I stumbled upon–probably from my musical homies, I forget who put me on but I really liked it.
I know she’s on twitter: @yesitsalgebra and from there I can tell she’s working on new music, I just need to hear it! Fave Song: “U Do It 4 Me” this one is syrupy sweet but I adoooore it! That was a #boolove track for real. lol
My girl Solo. Now she really doesn’t need an APB, I know where she is–I think. lol I follow her on twitter (@solangeknowles) and she’s doing the dj thing now, in addition to recording…I guess. Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams was an unexpected banger. I’ve dedicated posts in the past to her, and I’d really like to see what she has next. I truly think Solange is only going to get better musically. Fave song: “ChampagneChroniknightCap” because its just so trippy. “Cosmic Journey” I just stumbled upon today via my iPod’s shuffle and I forgot how much that one vibes also. The entire CD I really dig though. Same for all of the other ladies featured.
Any artists that you need to put an APB out on? Lets find them and get them to make some new music for the serious fans! Let me know in the comments.
