I'm opposed to segregation, but I think I'd like to applaud some girls on this one. What say you?

Here's a song that's in my head today. There's a line I disagree with in there- because I do want to live forever, and I'm planning on it. Aside from that I like this girl alot:

I was always amused by the fact that while she's decrying men who expect women to "strut, pout" and "put it out." That's exactly what she's doing in the video!

"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"

There was another thread once about guitarists, and some of us brought up several women guitarists who were severely underated. Courtney Love in this regard had a great line, "what's so macho about bending a string?" Anyway, check out Orianthi, a young woman who played guitar for Michael Jackson before his death. Lynn

Orianthi also played with Alice... Cooper. Smile

Here's my girl Alison:



And I love Taya Smith's voice. Fair warning, it's a Christian song.

Nice one, Theodore! That feeling, when you're performing to an audience of that size, and every person is singing along to every word of the song, is indescribable.

Here's one of my favorite singers. Unfortunately I doubt if anyone has ever heard of her. So allow me to give you some background first:

In 1981, I recorded "Breaking All The Rules" with Peter Frampton for A&M Records. Also on the album were our bass player John Regan, plus Toto guitarist and drummer Steve Lukather and Jeff Porcaro. Afterwards, our producer, David Kershenbaum, hired me as musical director for several other record dates. One of my favorites was for an Australian girl singer named Lisa Bade. I did the musical arrangements, hired the studio musicians, and played keyboards for 8 of the 10 tracks on her album. Having just worked with Steve Lukather and Jeff Porcaro, I booked them for our L.A. recording dates, plus Jeff's brother Mike Porcaro on bass. For a couple of the tracks I even hired my then-boss, Peter Frampton (alias Sam Diego) to play together with ex-Bowie guitarist Earl Slick. We also did some more tracks in NYC, where we used drummer Rick Marotta (Steely Dan, James Taylor, Carly Simon) and guitarists Mick Ronson (also ex-Bowie) and Shane Fontayne (whom I later hired as guitarist for the "new" Mamas And The Papas in 1982).

Anyway, I just loved Lisa Bade's vocals. But unfortunately, even though the recording budget had been huge, her album instantly ended up in the bargain bin because A&M was pushing someone else at the time. Lisa went back to Australia and, as far as I know, faded into obscurity. Here's a sampling of her singing:

Just a couple more.

Dawn Michele of Fireflight



and Lacy Mosley from Flyleaf. Now Lacy Sturm; unfortunately. Smile lol One of my favorite songs, let alone girl performers.



I like lots of female performers I guess, but that's enough for now.

She had a groovy voice. Shame she wasn't marketed properly; I sure like her style.

I have no idea how I missed your post last night; thanks for sharing.

Li-Sa-X!

Metal shredder with a height chart in her room. Smile

She was only 8 here:



And here she's now 10:



Can't wait to see her in 5 or 6 more years, writing her own stuff. Those smiles are too precious!

Speaking of incredible girl guitarists, here's Badi Assad. Not a shredder, but a virtuoso nonetheless.

Also check out her mouth beat box sounds ... while at the same time singing a melody!!!

There are several Norwegian female sings worth checking out such as
