Top 5 New Indie Queens of Music Round 17 features some truly amazing and beautiful talented women who are simply setting something new and unique in the indie music scene. This time around it features: Emilie, J Sutta, Anahita Skye, Naomi Greene and Layla Mora.
Genre: Indie pop
Why? Edinburgh based singer/songwriter Emilie delivers another showcase of haunting melodies, honest lyrics and enchanting vocals with her latest music video for “Never Enough”. As her voice soars softly and beautifully through the soundscape of this amazing track, we are captivated by the humanity that dwells in the story behind it and we can’t help but simply scream: “Bravo!”
2- J Sutta
Why? The sky does not come close to the limit of J Sutta’s talent, after saying goodbye to The Pussycat Dolls she has immersed herself into maturing and showcasing a sound that blends all the aspects of her eclectic music. With a soothing and inspiring mix of electronica and pop she manages to connect with every aspect of her listeners lives and experiences.
3- Anahita Skye
Genre: Indie pop
Why? The arrangement of the track is unique and so refreshing, the way every part falls together amazes me and then she sings and I am simply blown away. Through “Meant for you” we get a feel of self-discovery, growth and knowing the difference from love and comfort and we connect with Anahita, because her story is part of our story just in a different setting but still amazing and still part of life.
4- Naomi Greene
Genre: Indie Folk/Pop
Why? There’s a certain surrealism about Naomi’s classic meets ethereal charm in both music and style that mesmerizes us from the very beginning of the track. This Parisian born songstress took her talent to the magic of Los Angeles and developed a sound that speaks to us and connects myths with the daily struggles of life with a passion and honesty about it that I must bow down to her and encourage her to always take her guitar and Harp and make music that comes from her heart and soul.
5- Layla Mora
Why? Canadian singer/songwriter Layla Mora just blew me away, I am speechless at the tragic beauty of “Good thing”. The way she expresses regret, acceptance and growth in just one track is awe-inspiring because it flows in a manner that we can see and live the story (which some might have) while wanting to embrace her and let her know that we are proud for she was brave and accepted the path life took with grace.
