Last month I talked about some legendary female artists, and it was so much fun that I’d like to continue on the theme. So for October, I’ll be focusing on some important contemporary female artists. Each one of them represent uniqueness and impending importance.
Barnett’s perspective is singular. Rock is safe in her hands.
Holter is a visionary. There is a willingness for exploration within her songs.
Trish Kennan created music that had unbelievable depth and range. She is missed.
I am of the belief that Kara-Lis Coverdale should be as revered as some of the top shelf/legendary male ambient artists in the game. Go ahead and make a space between Basinski and Eno for KLC in the ambient legend category.
Yes, Yo La Tengo have been around awhile. It doesn’t change the fact that Georgia is as important to music as Moe Tucker. Her voice and tenderness are beyond measure.
The Weather Station
Tamara Hope has a way. Her delivery is unlike anyone else. Her lyrics and voice are a perfect union of rough and smooth.
Oliveros passed away last November at the age of 84. She was a pioneer in the realms of electronic and 20th century classical musics. Her work will continue to stand the test of time. An incredible artist.
Roberts is a poet, a musician, an improviser, and a storyteller. Her music is beyond whatever genre you can throw at it. She’s creating a sonic quilt where each new record is connected to the last.
A harpist from Philly that creates openings to other worlds with arcane compositions.
Sarah Lipstate makes lands of clear colors with offset guitars and endless imagination.
