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.

I just heard this Australian singer/songwriter via our StackorStarve Instagram while doing some social promotions. At Female Flow we give everyone a chance (a listen) which is one of the codes we work by. You just never know who you will find while exploring online. From the looks of her online presence she is just getting started with her music but her single, “Love & Psycho” which is available for download on iTunes is a pop track about mixing her relationship. Love can make you a little crazy, right? Mel Smith has been writing since she was as young as 11 years old as well as tackling some covers and we look forward to hearing her original material. Check her out and let us know what you think? @FemaleFlowMusic & follow her on Facebook!

Hip-hop/R&B songstress Toni Hill is from Portland, Oregon and brings a refreshment returning to the “Black Love” feeling in “Coffee Shop”.

I went to a private invite party for Ms. Raye 6’s birthday party and her friend Instagram’d this which sums up so much about her.
“Women are going to form a chain, a greater sisterhood than the world has ever known!” Sisterhood is real!! —
Raye6 is explosive, mysterious and can be down right demanding, but she deserves it. (in our mind at least) She recently went to the UK for a mini tour and recording session… which was a personal present from a dear loved one which we thought was super special and she is about to drop the body of work titled , “Journey to Lifted Sand”. A UK blogger stated, “The fourth performance of the night, was from an amazing young woman, with an incredible and powerful voice that blew the audience away, if you havent guessed by now.. I’m talking about the wonderful Raye 6. Coming all the way from the US of A, Raye 6 put on a great show, that had the audience woo’ing and ooh’ing. Raye 6 bought a different type of energetic vibe to the show that intrigued the audience. Her voice as well as her style was very unique and had many people asking questions such as ‘Who is she?’ and ‘Why have I not heard of her before?’.”
