    Default Grrlz, Grand Dames, and Divas

    Sometimes, quite often, actually, all I want to hear is a woman's voice, a woman's perspective.

    I am tired of the man's world. So tired.

    So glad to have a wife and daughter, they are the best. I have a son, he's a dude like me, he'll be a'ight.

    Just enjoyed this earnest work from Sharon Van Etten, in a playlist of Sinead O'connor, Ani Difranco, Tracy Chapman, Amy Winehouse, Annie Lennox, Corinne Bailey Rae, Imogen Heap, Sade, Tina Turner, Stevie Nicks, well, you get the idea.

    As a singer-songwriter of sorts myself, I secretly styled myself as a black lesbian. Much love for Tracy.

    In this poignant piece, a young woman, desperate to get out of a sad dead end life, pleads with her guy, only to realize in the end, that nothing is going to change.

    I see Imogen on your OP list. I’ve got 4 tickets on the refrigerator to see her in NYC this Spring. Going with the wife and daughters. She hasn’t toured around here in a while. It’ll be cool to see her with her Mi-Mu Gloves.

    I've been playing this while working online lately. Different take on an old blues song. She's also got a great band.

    Rhiannon is also required. Might not be the best video.

    If you get a chance to see Ruthie live, do it. She will put a smile on your face.
