Call your best friend and tell them the news! 5 years ago Volume 1 of Female Flow dropped and changed the level of attention that folks were giving indie female artists. From Nikki Grier to Tina B (now Tina World Order) there is some fire on this one that still bumps – FIVE YEARS LATER. Since then many have tried to follow suit but no one did it like us. Despite the pause we haven’t left, we haven’t stopped supporting the ladies on the mic, on the stages or behind the boards – just check our Instagram!

This isn’t brand new, but it may be new to you. Born Charlyn Marie “Chan” Marshall now going by an old name of her band, Cat Power this American artists sound can be explained as a “mix of punk, folk and blues”. Discovered in the mid 90’s she has always kept music close to her. She also stays busy with other hobbies and interests such as advertising, fashion and charity work. Like many she has struggled with relationships and drug abuse but has recently had a child. Needless to say her story is interesting and amazing. We look forward to hearing more from you Cat Powers.
From the bottom of the globe hours from me is a smooth songstress named Airling. This Australian looks like your girl-next-door until she her voicebox begins to release hypnotizing and soothing sounds. She came out with a project last year but right now we are talking about “Stallin”, a song about letting go of her boyfriend.
“I’ve been listening to quite a bit of RnB goddesses like Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, even Beyonce… I just really wanted to get away from the electronic pop side of things and do something really truly sexy and a bit ’90s RnB,” she told triple j.
Dj Khaled’s We The Best Music released new music from the labels first lady Steph Lecor titled “Saturday” and it is something that just might turn the clubs upside down this summer.
It is bold, independent and something for the ladies. The 808’s kick nicely. Her voice isn’t annoying which many people complain about when it comes to females emcees. But one thing that stood out to us was something she posted up on her social media lately.
Now anyone who has pursued something wholeheartedly knows that some friends just can’t hold on for the ride. Not everyone understands the sacrifices that have to be made or the fact that you have commitments outside of them. But what we do know is how fast they come back once you do reach that level of success. Our advice to Ms. Lecor is to keep her circle small, nose to the grindstone and we are almost positive this young, bright star will come out on TOP! We look forward to what she has in store. We welcome the First Lady of We The Best to #FemaleFlow!
Let’s help her get her followers up >> follow this sassy artist on TWITTER!
Gaelle claims Atlanta, GA as her home but born in NJ this singers cool vibe is just what you need to play on a hot summer night. The whole album is amazing but the song “Rain” which we discovered off Pandora is what we call “just right”. She claims Electronic, Soul & Pop as her genres and stated she was influenced by the likes of Patti Labelle, Radiohead, Portishead, Cocteau Twins, Peter Gabriel, Sting, Sade, Bjork, Duran Duran, Prince, and Hugh Masekela. For those who love vinyl you can purchase this track now at Discogs.
From VP Records out of FL and Jamaica is Etana latest video “I Rise” directed by Scorpio21. She chose the name Etana, which means ‘the strong one’ in Swahili; her strength was manifested, this time around, by pursuing a musical career strictly on her own terms. Etana’s elegantly modest Rasta-chic sartorial style is as distinctive as her sound: an audacious fusion of folk, soul, jazz and reggae supporting a powerful vocal range suggestive of the ancestral spirit of South Africa’s Miriam Makeba, the regality of reggae queen Marcia Griffiths and the soulful verve of Etta James. “I looked at how women were being represented in (Jamaican) music and how little girls think that is the way it is supposed to be, and I wanted to be a positive influence and change some of the things they are taught,” Etana reflected. Etana has also been an advocate and activist for impoverished children in Jamaica and battered girls through her charity organization the “JUST ONE FOUNDATION”. Etana has been actively offering her services and time to various charity organizations in Jamaica, raising funds toward alleviating the problem of poverty in Jamaican garrison communities. A true ambassador for Reggae music and female in the music industry, she is relentless in spreading her message of “unconditional love” through positive music with the hope of uplifting her audience from any situation that render them weak or hopeless. Prepare yourself for the Etana Experience!
We have waited for the most talked about female emcee out of NY and now she is here. From the ever changing planet of Brooklyn is 22 year old Chelsea Reject and her new mixtape titled, CMPLX is getting HOT ratings so far. Project features production by Rami B, Dougy, Kxngs and more delivering nothing but straight lyrics. She told HNHH, ” CMPLX is all about self-discovery and experimentation. Music and life are interchangeable to me so I had to experience life in order to really start discovering myself musically. This project will give you insight into “the reject” and into my existence as a whole. CMPLX is for the dreamers and those searching for forever like me.” We caught her show in BK not to long ago and hope to catch up with an interview soon. Get more info by checking her Official Website.
You might have seen or heard her “Let the Birds Fly” track and you might even being doing the dance right now after you see and watch this new one titled, “Faded”.

OH!, If you’re in NYC/NJ then you have to come by the single/video release party tonight for a performance and drink with her and Female Flow! See you there…. “All that I want is to get, Faded”!! _((Happy Birthday to ever so sexy Randy Haze))_
