Fall brings an exciting time for new music! On top of the ridiculous amount of tours that kick-off during this time of year, we get to hear new albums from a handful of artists looking to make their mark on the last few months of the year before 2019 begins (how scary is the fact that we’re approaching the end of 2018?!)

In a sea of never-ending indie rock acts trying to make a name for themselves, it can be hard to stand out.

Happy #InternationalWomensDay, ladies! I’m so happy to be sharing this post to highlight some of my favorite upcoming female musicians: what better day to post than today? Below are a few of my favorite females I’ve been listening to lately. Enjoy and be sure to tell the fabulous women in your life how much they mean to you!
I have a handful of female musicians that I have written about more than once, so I tried to keep it fresh with some newer artists I’ve been listening to recently (but I have featured a couple these before – not to this extent). I love having the platform to write and share my interests because I know based on experience that these sorts of things can really help an artist out, and who doesn’t like free promo?

Hi all – thanks for reading. I’ve decided to write something a bit differently with this post because it’s something that has been weighing on me a lot recently.
With all of the messed up, wild, terrifying crap that takes place in the world on a daily basis, it makes sense that many people like to look towards music or other forms of art as not only an outlook for self-expression, but for self-care.
