Nico Tortorella’s Born

I think this is going to be the year of divas transitioning from acting to singing, usually it’s the other way around, but I am living for it. If the music’s good, great I might have a chance to catch them in concert. But if the music’s bad, even better. What kind of fruit am I? The…

Elle Coves’ song “Before I Fall Apart” has been on my Liked Songs List for ages and I’ve been impatiently waiting for her to drop an EP or full album. My wait is finally over, Elle finally dropped her new EP, Selfishly Inclined this month. How could I not love and relate to this title?…

Black Divas Of Dave-inity

Everybody knows iconic black divas such as Diana Ross, Beyonce and Little Richard. If you don’t, you need to stop reading this post right now, Google them, and recite ten hail Mary’s…Wilson or J. Blige… whichever Mary you get on your knees for. In honor of Black History Month, I went through my personal musical…

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. …

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…

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…

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…

Nxdia’s In The Flesh EP

Nxdia (pronounced Nadia with they/he/she pronouns) is a new to me diva. Their new EP In The Flesh caught my attention because it’s unlike anything out there right now but with a little familiarity because it borrows from so many genres. Nxdia’s bi-lingual (English and Arabic) song writing is solid and impressive. The EP’s sultry…

Lynnea M’s Shades Of Indigo EP

I’ve recently discovered Lynnea M’s EP from last year, Shades Of Indigo, thanks to Spotify. According to Google research, many people might know her from being on The Voice, which I haven’t watched since the first season. I only made it through the first few episodes, losing interest when the professionals started messing with their…
