Sasha Alcott from When Particles Collide, Bec Hollcraft from Stars in Stereo, Evie, Natalie Gelman, Mariana Bell, Lorelei Carlson, Aylin Eser, *AUDRA* from Chaser Eight, Nicki Kris, Abby Holden, Leesa Coyne from Naked on Roller Skates. Would anyone care to venture a guess as to what these 11 women have in common? Don't go for the obvious "they're all female indie singers" either! Besides the obvious, there isn't a single female singer on mainstream radio that holds a candle to ANY of these talented indie artists.
From alt/rock, to rock n roll, to folk, to r&b, to pop, to punk, there's a sound here for every taste. Some of these artists you'll recognize from previous posts on this blog, others are making their debut here. Take a listen...

There's a lot to be said for what each of these women means to the indie music community. More importantly, they collectively represent what music can one day (hopefully soon) get back to.
Make sure you follow, like and share the music of these very deserving ladies on Twitter, Facebook, Reverbnation, Soundcloud, MySpace, individual websites, etc. Even more important? If you hear something you like, support them properly and buy their music! Each of them has links available to iTunes, CDBaby, buy them on Reverbnation, and Amazon.com or directly from the artists on their websites. To quote @limey59, "pay it back, buy a track"!
Support unsigned artists... give indie music a chance.
