Girl Crushing

As a singer-songwriter I feel it is essential to support other artists and to constantly be inspired by the music they are creating. When I do this I feel my creative juices running at a higher frequency. Listening to new music and falling in love with all different genres, voices and lyrics is something I love doing. This week I have a few new artists I feel incredibly inspired by and, ok fine, I’ll admit it – I’m super girl crushing over!

The first artist I would like to mention is Kelsey Karter. Kelsey is a soul-pop singer from New Zealand. When I listen to her songs I feel like I am listening to a modern Billie Holiday with a Janis Joplin attitude. The latest track she released that I am obsessing over is called “Too Many Hearts to Break.” From the lyrics to the 60’s video vibe it just all works. I have been super inspired by Kelsey. I can’t wait for her next single!

Another artist I’ve been moved by lately is Baby Raptors. Baby Raptors is a retro 80’s dance pop singer who is based in Brooklyn, like me! Hey, girl hey. Her songs are edgy, colorful and fun! All I do when I listen to her music is DANCE! I feel like I’ve stepped into 13 Going On 30 when Jennifer Garner is singing and dancing to “Love is a Battlefield”. The song I’ve been girl crushing over is called “Lostboi” which is a single off of her latest EP. Girl, keep doing you! I am totally digging it and feel super inspired after listening to your tracks.

The last, but certainly not least, artist I have been girl crushing over this week is LA based, Noir- pop singer- songwriter Maiah Manser. Her powerful songs send chills up your spine. I recently saw her live in New York City and I was beyond mesmerized. From her songwriting, to piano playing and passionate vocals I just loved the whole thing. I am super obsessed with two songs in particular off of her latest EP Second Skin titled “Top of My Lungs” and “Second Skin.” I know every lyric to those songs and just really love everything about her and her art.

My girl crushing this week was filled with super, badass artists who continue to inspire me every day. I hope you listen to their music, check out their videos and feel the same way as I do. Who runs the world? GIRLS and these are just a few who have inspired me this week.
