Donna De Lory’s Gone Beyond

The morning one of my divas releases a new album, I buy it and download it to my USB so I can listen to it in my car to and from work. This past Friday was no different when Donna De Lory released her new album, Gone Beyond. I popped it in my car and…

Madi Diaz’s History Of A Feeling

Madi Diaz is one of the more diverse divas that I follow, with a varied catalog of musical stylings. Her newest album, History Of A Feeling, is very stripped down and gives a whole new meaning to modern folk. There isn’t any other diva that I follow that has quite the same sound or style…

Debbie Gibson’s The Body Remembers

Debbie Does Dance…and does it amazingly well. It’s been eleven years since Debbie Gibson released a cover album of male Japanese artists, Ms. Vocalist, for the Japanese market. Before that, in 2003 she released an album of her favorite showtunes called Colored Lights: The Broadway Album. So saying I’ve been thirsty for a Debbie Gibson…

Griff’s One Foot In Front Of The Other

I’ll be the first to admit that my taste is very specific when it comes to my divas. When people give me suggestions for a musician I will “love,” nine times out of ten, it’s someone they like with zero consideration for my taste. When one of my friends, John, suggested I check out Griff’s…

Chloe Moriondo

I’m a bad gay or just an old one, but thanks to that fancy new contraption called The Internet, I’m just now discovering this new wave of up-and-coming young LGBTQIA+ divas that I’ve been unaware of for years. Last week may have been the end of Pride month but I’m keeping the party going with…

Girl In Red’s If I Could Make It Go Quiet

When I look for new music, it’s rare to discover a diva recording in a new style, but that’s what I discovered this weekend. My partner and I went on a road trip to New Hampshire for a Tiffany concert. My partner was driving, putting him in charge of music. It was 80’s New Wave…

Taylor Alxndr’s Noise & Hologram EPs

Last Juneteenth my favorite indie music downloading service, Bandcamp, donated 100% of their share of sales to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Bandcamp is making it a yearly tradition by doing the same a day early this Friday June 18th. Last year I discovered queer pop diva Be Steadwell, so I went on the Black…

Marina’s Ancient Dreams In A Modern Land

In my gay opinion, Marina’s new album Ancient Dreams In A Modern Land should be required listening for any female young adult today. It’s something I want my great niece listening to. Marina has made a socially-conscious electro-pop album with a strong female voice. Ancient Dreams In A Modern Land has stayed true to Marina’s…

Natalie Gelman’s Moth To The Flame

I miss the good old days of running to the music store on album release day, sweating it out worrying they might be sold out before I got there. Now a days, I refuse to preorder albums online because divas sometimes release autographed or deluxe editions the day of and also I don’t want to…

Paula Cole’s American Quilt

As with the making of any good quilt (not that I would know, I took sewing in high school and was so bad at it the teacher had me clipping her grocery coupons instead), there’s a little of this and a little of that thrown in, and that’s exactly what Paula Cole’s American Quilt is…
