Tue, 21 Apr 2015 12:34:27
Now is an exciting time to be a female singer in the pop music realm. The charts and the airplay are regularly dominated by Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Meghan Trainor and Lady Gaga, to name a few. But there is a new crop of pop leading ladies who are trailing the aforementioned talents and repping the new breed.
From the vocal divas of Fifth Harmony to Meg Mac to Meg Myers—how cute, the "Megs!"—there are plenty of women on the rise in the pop music world. These 15 acts are about to make pop music their bitch. Don't say we didn't warn you. Proceed to familiarize yourself with them now so you are already a fan and a member of the faithful as these ladies and their stars further ascend.
We've said many times here at ARTISTdirect that Kat Dahlia is our girl crush. Her smoky, husky pipes make her sound experienced beyond her years, and there is such a richness and ripeness to her lyrics that suggests that Kat has taken her life x heart experience and mined it as source material for her music. While her name suggests a bit of a "femme fatale" vibe, she also exudes a real girl quality and you can't help but relate to her.
Dahlia's ebullient, passionate spirit and her raspy delivery convey so much meaning that there is no way you can't help but "feel" her. That means she is an even bigger pop music threat, since she connects with the listener on such a deep level that she reaches marrow. Grab a copy of My Garden and make sure you dive right into "Crazy," a song that captures that quintessential feeling of a brand new love. You will find yourself getting all kray kray about Kat Dahlia.
The ladies of pop are coming for you!
