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!
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”. Justina is NOTORIOUS for murdering others songs and this is no exception. This time she takes on Ace of Base but puts her Jersey sprinkle on it. 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))_
What will happen when this super talented little lady becomes an adult? What a power house in the making. Of course if helps to be born into the hiphop lineage but it’s not mandatory. She is bi-lingual, dually talented if you count emcee & dj but don’t forget dancing and modeling. We are proud to post again about Miss DJ Glo who is definitely reppin for the ladies across the world. Keep up the good work and we look forward to having you in the States real soon!!
Straight out of Oakland is lil miss sassy Tia Nomore who states on her bandcamp, “i just record when i can and write all the time.” FF first discovered her on Soundcloud (which we are truly upset was just bought by Warner Music) with her song “Or Nah” featuring Kehlani which has over 340K plays. We love the fact that she isn’t trying to impress, just raw emotions for us when she feels like it. It takes the pressure off and allows the artists to just create when motivated, right? In the beginning she dropped 13th Grade which included 11 tracks some experimental, some in the pure essence of hiphop. Needless to say, she is def someone to check lyric wise as well as the producers she is working with is equally dope. But you let us know your thought… Tweet us @FemaleFlowMusic
We live in a world where actions no longer have consequences, morality is no longer a reality, our youth are not supported to be a change and there is no longer any respect or value of a human life. With that being said; in every shadow of darkness there will be a presence of light. Embark with Miranda Writes as she flourishes our souls, cleanses our minds and awakens our third eye. To be wise, strong, certain & fight for the beauty in life is the definition of a true warrior. “Knowledge of Self”
As women we are always challenging the norm. I recently saw this video which is from a musical competition inspired by movie “Salut Salon” directed by Ralph Pleger and song “Summer” composed by Antonio Vivaldi. They start off competitive but eventually work together as a quartet to make some pretty interesting music happen in an almost acrobatical way. Not your run-of-the-mill orchestra set…. but definitely inspiring.
The beginning sentence of her bio is, “SZA envelopes your soul at first listen.” and we couldn’t agree more. From one of our favorite go-to guys/gals for fresh and new talent, NOISEY …was this beautiful creature who will touched our souls. They recently shared their thoughts about her stating, “A pitch-perfect blend of glowering, boomy beats, fluttering synths, and SZA’s luxuriant tones, the St. Louis-born singer messes with R&B and serves it up fresh.”
You can’t help but get absorbed into her world. This Maplewood native is natural and he project titled ‘S’ is a must download to anyone who appreciates relaxing and melodic music.

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?’.”
