Part 2 in the Boys Vs. Girls #WILT highlights the fabulous female solo artists that are kicking butt with their simply divine voices.
Ella Henderson - Glow
This 18 year old British singer-songwriter came sixth on the ninth series of the UK X Factor and was signed straight away. Her first single Ghost was a major hit soaring straight to number 1 in the UK charts when released. Her second single Glow is a solid follow up with a youthful twilight sound.
Lykke Li - No Rest For The Wicked
Li Lykke Timotej Svensson is a 28 year old singer-songwriter from Sweden with very indie pop, electric sounds. I hear her songs quite a lot on TV shows, particularly at dramatic times or to end the episode and they fit perfectly. The crashing drums in the chorus of this song are like a massive wave that come after those soft lyrics.
Sia - Fire Meet Gasoline
Sia Furler is a 38 year old singer-songwriter from South Australia. She has over 20 awards under her belt for her work with other artists as well as her own. Her single Chandelier shot to number 1 quickly putting her in the spotlight, which brought to light her song writing abilities as she wrote famous songs such as Pretty Hurts for Beyonce and Diamonds for Rihanna. Fire Meet Gasoline is a roaring song that I pray she releases as a single, it is sublime.
That's part 2, Girl Power!
So that's Boys Vs. Girls, which post did you prefer?
Personally I think all six singer-songwriters have a massive influence on the music scene right now despite their gender obviously (had to write that to save someone a rant) but I had fun making these two posts.
Hope you enjoyed them also!
