Madison Malone’s Songs I Wrote Before You

When I was first introduced to Madison Malone’s I & II EP, I was attracted to her folk/pop sound but on her new EP, Songs I Wrote Before You, she has gone completely pop and I am living for it. In my gay opinion, it’s rare for a diva’s sophomore EP to be better than…

Foxes’ The Kick

On her new album, The Kick, Foxes stays true to her pop-dance roots. She likes to play with the tempo; from simple swaying, to shoulder shaking, to full on shoe stomping, with many transitions in each song. Not only does Foxes fill her songs musically but lyrically as well. In my gay opinion, dance music…

Sophia’s Fragile

Sophia was the first new-to-me diva to come across my radar in 2022 but she’s giving me old school 2003 vibes. Sophia’s Fragile album has a reminiscent pop and R&B sound that I haven’t enjoyed since Maria’s album, My Soul, back in the day. Sophia is a queer singer, songwriter, performer and producer who is bringing…

Another Nguyen

I check out Kickstarter at least a couple times a month to see if there’s any new indie artists, who have music that I enjoy, looking to crowdfund a new album or EP. This past weekend I came across the campaign of new-to-me diva, Another Nguyen, who’s trying to get her second EP and new…

Craptastic Christmas Classics 2021

For someone who isn’t religious and doesn’t celebrate Christmas, I have a sleigh full of holiday music (in laymen’s terms, that’s almost 24 hours straight, of not so straight hours, of diva delights) in my collection and December is the time I binge all the craptastic Christmas movies that I can. This year I got…

Wild Fire’s Phases

Let me start this post with two disclaimers. #1: I think Facebook is totally evil and Mark Zuckerberg would sell his grandma to make a buck. However, all my divas use it so I need an account (not tied to me personally) to keep track of new music. #2: This is the first time I’m…

Holigay 2021

Well, it’s that magical time of the year again when divas feel festive and spread some choral cheer. This year Santa wasn’t overly generous but he did stuff my stocking with one new album and a few singles. Kristin Chenoweth’s new holiday album might be titled “Happiness Is…Christmas” but, in my gay opinion, happiness is…

ENTITY’s Visions In Black EP

When recently introduced to ENTITY’s Visions In Black EP, her sound was described as “queer goth electro/pop” so I expected loud, ear-bleeding, musical angst. Instead I met Carly Rae Jepsen’s evil twin sister from another mother. ENTITY’s sound is darker and harder than Carly’s but her pop stylings worked their way into my brain the…

Zuzu’s Queensway Tunnel

New-to-me diva Zuzu’s album Queensway Tunnel doesn’t have the pop sound that I typically seek out, however her style is so unique and honest, there was no way I couldn’t be drawn in. Zuzu is a solid singer-songwriter who can fluctuate between eternal love (“Endlessly Yours”) to storing an ex’s bones in her closet (“Never…

Susanna Hoffs’ Bright Lights

“Walk Like An Egyptian!” “Manic Monday!” “Hazy Shade Of Winter!” “Eternal Flame!” I love me The Bangles. However, in 1991 when I heard Susanna Hoffs’ solo song “My Side Of The Bed” for the first time, I was like “The Bangles who?” Her first solo album When You’re A Boy is one of my favorite…
