Anna Nalick’s At Now

I was super excited to receive my email from Pledge Music announcing the release of Anna Nalick’s new album, At Now. It’s been six years since her last album Broken Doll & Odds & Ends and a dozen years since becoming a fan of her huge hit “Breathe (2 AM).” In my gay opinion Anna is more…

Lenka’s Attune

The thing I love most about Lenka and her music is how fun and quirky they both are. Whenever Lenka releases a new album, I know I’m in for a good time, and Attune is no different. From the unique instruments like a clap machine (“Flesh And Bone”) or a xylophone (“Crystal Ball”), to a song…

Madi Diaz’s It’s Okay To Be Alone EP

Back in 2014 I came across a free EP download called Stripped Chopped + Screwed by Madi Diaz. I’d never heard of Madi before but I’m never one to turn up free music or the chance to discover a new diva, plus with a title like that, how could I go wrong? It contained five…

Echosmith’s Inside A Dream EP

I became an Echosmith fan, like many people, the minute I heard their hit single “Cool Kids” back in 2013. I bought their album Talking Dreams and their EP Acoustic Dreams which is some of the Talking Dreams songs stripped down. What I like about Echosmith is that they have an upbeat vibe and make…

Belinda Carlisle’s Wilder Shores

Belinda Carlisle is one of the divas that I follow who is probably better known for being a member of a group (the historic Go-Go’s) than her solo career. However, in my gay opinion, her solo work is way more impressive. I’ve been following her career since she went solo with her single “Mad About You”…

Tori Amos’ Native Invader Deluxe

When I think of the divas I discovered in the 90’s, Tori Amos is one of the first to come to mind. Her raw emotional singing and heart wrenching lyrics on her album Little Earthquakes shook me to my closeted core. Finally a diva who sang about a darker time and understood that everything wasn’t…

Doria Roberts

I recently discovered a new diva to follow when I was on vacation in Atlanta, Georgia. While there, none of my divas were touring in the area, so I decided to check out a new one instead. I’m glad I did. I went to see Doria Roberts in concert at The City Winery and was completely…

Paula Cole’s Ballads

I’m a huge Paula Cole fan as I’ve stated from time to time in this blog, from how I first became a fan to her incredible performing style. Paula’s new album Ballads is a personal ode to her first love, American jazz and folk music. In honor of it’s release, I’d also like to take this opportunity…

Alexander Jean’s High Enough EP

There have been a few updates since I posted my Alexander Jean’s Head High EP post. First, BC Jean and Mark Ballas, who make up Alexander Jean, are now a married writing and recording duo. Secondly, after having seen them in concert, I can say that they are beyond talented and so much fun live. BC Jean is the reason I…
