Maria Mena’s They Never Leave Their Wives

I hope with an album title like They Never Leave Their Wives, you weren’t planning to listen while relaxing in the bath tub with candles lit and a glass of chardonnay, unless you were planing on throwing a toaster in with you. Staying on brand, Maria Mena’s new album is just as full of angst…

Patty Smyth’s It’s About Time

I, like any fan of 80’s music, know Patty Smyth as the voice behind the classic hit ‘Warrior” by Scandal. However, in my gay opinion, she solidified her spot in Divadom in 1992 when she released her single “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough” with Don Henley. Her self-titled album became an instant favorite of mine…

Lindsay Ell

The thing I miss most during this whole Coronavirus thing is going to concerts and buying merch to get autographed afterward. The pandemic is allowing me time to find new divas though, last week I found Twinnie on Spotify. When I go to buy a new diva’s album (since streams don’t even earn them a…

In my gay opinion, country music can be depressing with its tinny guitars and downer lyrics. Even Cyndi Lauper, who I worship, wasn’t able to convert me with her Detour album. However, there are some up-and-coming pop-country divas that can get my toes a tappin’, and Twinnie is one of them. Twinnie’s Hollywood Gypsy album…

If you don’t like Katy Perry, well obviously, there’s something wrong with you. Katy’s music and lyrics always focus on the silver lining, looking on the…

Kalen & Aslyn’s Back Of Our Minds

This time last year I did a blog post about a once in a lifetime opportunity my partner and I had to host a concert by one of our favorite divas, Aslyn. What a difference a year makes, now going to concerts is a thing we used to do. Thankfully new music is still being…

Be Steadwell

Black Lives Matter. Period. How to write a post about a cause I believe in and find a way to help? But without making it all about me, when I make everything about me, since it’s my gay opinion. The answer is through relatable music. This Friday, June 19th the website I use to discover…
