New Women On The Music Scene You Need To Know

New Women On The Music Scene You Need To Know

By Barbara Farina

How many new artists in the music world you know?


I’m not talking about the future new artists of American Idol or X-Factor, I’m talking about those wonderful voices that are beginning their career and in my humble opinion have a great career ahead. If we pay a little attention, we will find great artists around us all the time. Either in a bar, a disco, on the street or in the subway playing her guitar and singing for us all to enjoy. Too often, we don’t take notice of their talents.


For all those people who are in the world of social media, if you watch carefully, you will find incredible musicians, photographers, painters, sculptors all over the web! Some have even made their breakthroughs due largely to the exposure they gained online. A career in the music world is not a straightforward race. Musicians, especially women, who want to dedicate their lives to fulfill their dream, which is to have a career and life as a musician, often meet major obstacles.

The music industry is filled with great producers, but there are too many of them who when they  find a good voice, want to transform the artist into the next Lady Gaga or Madonna instead of letting them be their own person and performer. This causes many good singers stray from their path or take much longer to emerge with their own voice. Too often individuality is lost in the name of trying to create the next big thing.


Each day there are new voices that deserve a chance to be heard and applauded. Many of us love music. Music, for many of us, is a great catalyst. A way to express what happens to us within ourselves. It expresses how we feel. It inspires us at times when we are blocked and need something to revitalize us. It speaks for us when we can’t find the words. We need to encourage these new voices and appreciate them as they are – particularly our young women. The young unknown we enjoy and encourage today could very well be the star of tomorrow.


Everyone started as an unknown

“Without music, life would be a mistake.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols

“People haven’t always been there for me but music always has.” ― Taylor Swift

Let me introduce you to some of the singers / artists that are emerging on the music scene who move me and I feel have the ability to move others as well.
Paper to the Wind is about how vulnerable you can feel in love and how it can pick you up from the depths one minute and drop you down the next.  Danica Hunter, 17 years old, writes her own music and is accompanied by her guitarist Angus Chandler who is also 17 years old. Enjoy!

This is remix of “How To Love” by Tia P providing the female perspective. Tia P hails from Inglewood, CA, United States.


Also check out Miss Riss who is set to start tearing it up in her video “Recognize Game”.

I had a boyfriend who told me I’d never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I’d fail. I said to him, ‘Someday, when we’re not together, you won’t be able to order a cup of coffee at the fucking deli without hearing or seeing me. ― Lady Gaga (And for those who didn’t catch it, she is our header image in this post from before she was famous!)


I can fill a whole page and more, of music and I think it is excellent but what I’d like is for you to tell me, who you think are the new voices or the not so new, that deserve more attention from the public and producers.

A world where we cannot listen to others would be a world of one.
For awhile, let the music guide us and make us feel.
