Link Lauren’s Boot Cut Jeans EP

I first heard of Link Lauren when Spotify recommended his song “I Love It When Hot Guys Cry” to me. Sometimes I feel so seen by Spotify that it’s scary. I checked out Link’s other singles, and after a long wait, was excited when he finally dropped his EP, Book Cut Jeans, last month. Boot…

Miki Ratsula’s I’ll Be Fine If I Want To

When Spotify recommended the song “Jealous Of My Brother” to me, Miki Ratsula’s vocals caught my ear and I wanted to hear more. I liked that Miki’s sound was sort of gender fluid and after looking up their Spotify page, I found that Miki is a trans, non-binary Finnish singer/songwriter whose voice matches their persona. …

Wild Fire’s Mirrors Edge

What better way to start off the New Year than with a new album from Wild Fire, Mirrors Edge, which has a whole new sound for them. Wild Fire’s previous albums were very much pop-country and there’s some hints of that on their current ballads. However, the sister duo (Kayla and Kelli Iutzwig) have taken…

My Fourth Annual Divas Playlist

As I reviewed my playlist of the best songs this year for this post, I realized that musically, 2023 was a great year. I always enjoy discovering emerging divas but it’s the new music from divas that I have been following for decades that really excites me. This year saw the epic returns of Susanna…

Holigay 2023

Well, it’s December once again, that means time for me to binge cheesy Hallmark and Lifetime holiday movies and download the newest diva holiday music. A few divas dropped their first seasonal singles ever, but these aren’t your grandma’s carols. Fefe Dobson’s “Santa Claus Is Back In Town” is a classic song but now with…

A Royal Run-In With Millie Jackson

This past weekend I had an audience with The Queen…no, not of England. Rupaul? No, she might be fabulous but she’s no queen. I’m talking about real royalty, not just someone who dons a crown and feels entitled. I’m talking about The Queen of Hip-Hop, R & B, Soul, Country and Pop! I am talking about Miss…

Lenka’s Intraspectral

Just when things feel a little less perky and quirky in the world, Lenka drops her new album Intraspectral, and balance is restored. Although I’m a little more cynical and appreciate my revenge breakup songs, Lenka’s writing style and sound always brings a smile to my face. In my gay opinion, her fun-loving sound is…

Another Nguyen’s Look At How Much You’ve Grown EP

Last year, thanks to Kickstarter, I found Another Nguyen’s campaign to help get her new EP, Look At How Much You’ve Grown, made and I’m glad I could play a small part by backing it. That’s the cool thing about Kickstarter, helping indie artists see their dreams brought to life. In my gay opinion, the…

Yehra’s Ricochet EP

Yehra is back with their old-school Sade vibes on their new Ricochet EP. In my gay opinion, the EP’s jam is slow, smooth and sultry and has me living out some serious retro lounge lizard realness. Yehra’s melodic beats and breathy vocals sound like something you’d experience in a dimly-lit cabaret with red crushed-velvet booths…

Marielle Kraft’s Good EP

“Good”, according to dictionary.com, is defined as satisfactory in quality. In my gay opinion, the only thing good about Marielle Kraft’s new EP is the title, the music itself is beyond satisfactory, it’s amazing! The four-song EP is half perky beats and half sweet balladry. In each song, Marielle defines “good” for herself. “Something Good”…
