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…

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…

Jenn Champion’s The Last Night Of Sadness

Earlier this year I did a post about discovering Jenn Champion and her Kickstarter campaign to get her new album The Last Night Of Sadness made. Because I backed her campaign, I got my signed CD, a handwritten postcard and a download of the album two weeks before today’s official release. Recently, I’ve had some…

Fefe Dobson’s Emotion Sickness

I’ve been a Fefe Dobson fan for two decades, ever since buying her self-titled album on CD in 2003 because it was on sale. I love me a bargain. This was a time before Spotify, discovering new artists was a crap shoot but Fefe didn’t look like every other artist out there and with song…

Maria Mena’s And Then Came You

The thing I love about Maria Mena and her music is that she always goes there, especially on her new album And Then Came You. Whether she’s singing about a relationship’s messy end (her entire new album), mental health (“Try Again Tomorrow”) or death (“It Was Love”) she lays all her cards on the table…

Conservatives have been making a huge stink about drag queens lately, especially reading story books to children, trying to spread their gayness. Let me share a little secret with you about the Gay Agenda, the drag queens were only our first step in making the world more fabulous, our real secret weapon is Idina Menzel’s…

Carly Rae Jepsen’s The Loveliest Time

Lately, roughly a year or so after the drop of a new album, the stars align and Carly Rae Jepsen is gracing us with the b-sides from that album. It’s that magical time again, almost a year after The Loneliest Time, and Carly has released The Loveliest Time. This is her third time dropping a…

Echosmith

If a musician or band has a self-titled album, it’s usually their first. Echosmith chose to break that rule on their newest self-titled album. Although it’s their third, it feels like a new beginning. Of course they still have their pop sound but this time it’s more mature and subdued, not so in your face…

Tina Arena’s Love Saves

I was super excited about Tina Arena’s new album Love Save. More so than any of her previous albums, because with the release of this album (which had signed copies available), a world tour was announced. Anyone who read my post back in 2015 about her album Eleven, knows that seeing Tina in concert has…

Morgan Reese’s Empress Of Mars

I first discovered Morgan Reese just over a year ago. Back when I was bummed out because some of my Memorial Day weekend plans got cancelled and Morgan Reese was tied to a record label that had her doing upbeat pop music. A lot can change in a year. Now I’m in a much happier…
