Female Artists/Bands...

I was reading through the Halestorm thread and noticed that everyone's kind of split on digging female fronted bands/artists. I know that we've never sold any female artists (other than Robin Beck) in large quantities at Wishing Well. I can't even get some of my best friends listen to some new female fronted stuff just once! I'm just wondering what it is about female artists/bands that puts off some of you guys?

 

My favorite female artists/bands:

 

Heart

Lee Aaron

Saraya

Darby Mills/Headpins

Toronto

Patty Smyth

I think female fronted bands are the same as male bands, theres some good ones and some shit ones.

Sadly though, some people are still of the blinkered mindset that women cannot rock!

Itsnot that its a hard sale, I think there are just so many more male fronted bands, the pool gets tainted, I just posted about an awesome one, Skunk Anansie, I think if you have the right women a female vocalist can be better then a male, Damone is a totally fucking smokin new band, I loved Alyson Avenue,

 

Saraya

Harlow

Warlock

Gyspy Queen

Headpins

Fanny

Scandal

Witness

Vixen

I think its just a case that there has been far far fewer female fronted bands over the years. & then when you consider that only a % of them will be any good you are only left with a handful which really do the business. Some of my favs have been

 

Saraya

Heart

Sass Jordan

Witness

Harlow

Nightwish

Mostly Autumn

Skunk Anansie

Within Temptation

 

but like I say its bad when you are struggling to name more than 10 off the top of your head. Those mentioned above though are pretty killer IMO.

There are heaps of threads with female bands listed so I won't bother with that, but to answer the questions at the start of this thread.

 

I was one of the dudes in the Halestorm thread saying that I'm not generally a fan of female fronted rock. I too have asked myself why. Surely it's better to listen to a sexy female voice over a dood's voice? But for me it's not. For me, it's pretty simple. I like music I can relate to. I like to be in the moment of the song, and generally, with a female singing about a dude's hard penis entering her or she misses a dude's hard penis entering her (as they often do) I can't be there with her. It's pretty much as simple as that.

 

I have plenty of female fronted bands - every single good one mentioned in this thread - and do not avoid them. But if you ask me point blank, I plain and simply prefer male frotned bands every single time. Without question. :)

 

And it has nothing at all to do with a belief that "women can't rock".

    • What a honey Gudrun Laos was and what a Killer track this is!    
    • I didn't say I didn't like it. It's a good album, but I guess after years of reading folks praise for it I built it up to be something more than it actually was. 
    • We already know you're a leftist idiot! Known all around these parts!
    • How are you guys letting horrible songs get into your head???
    • I'm surprised you didn't like it. That's a shame. 
    • It's a mystery alright, although how the band could okay this for release is an even bigger mystery. Also find it intresting that all of the reviews I've read have failed to mention the bizarre mixing and mastering of this record, which kinda makes you question their credibility as rock reviewers.   This I don't agree with at all. The thing that makes H.E.A.T the awesome band that they are is that they've never compromised with their sound or felt the urge to follow trends. We all know that they've could have gone the Dynazty route, making hard 'n' heavy records, that would probably have made them an even bigger and more popular band with the masses. Of course that's not what the fans want, and they know that. We want H.E.A.T to sound like H.E.A.T - and I think they've done a damn fine job of that on this record. I don't mind a bit of experimentation, like on Demon Eyes, as long as it's the exception and a temporarily deviation from the trademark sound. As for bangers, I do think there are some here, but they're all ruined to some degree by the poor mixing job. No, they don't reach the awesomeness of let's say "Dangerous Ground" or "Rock Your Body" from the last album, but stuff like "Nationwide", "Not For Sale", "Hold Your Fire" and "Wings Of An Aeroplane" come pretty damn close. Being the AOR fanatic I am, my main criticism with this band is always that I want them to be more AOR, like on the first 2-3 records. If you're looking for a direction, then this record is clearly a distinctive step away from that. They want to be pure melodic hard rock and not AOR, I think it's pretty clear. Truthfully it's been evident from "Tearing Down The Walls" and onward, but Force Majeure makes it even more evident that no change in that direction is very probable.   If there's anything that this album doesn't lack, it's guitars. The guitars are so loud in the mix that Kenny´s vocals are drowning in them. The album is unlistenable with good headphones, you have to play it through speakers or earphones to make it somewhat listenable.
    • You need to know who you are before trying to figure out who other people are.
    • I can work with Floor,  I like that Northward album she did with Jørn Viggo Lofstad.
    • Live performance  Honestly, I didn't care for this much upon first listen, but with each play I find it ear worming it's way into my skull...  Troy announced he was taking time off from touring last year, so I'm assuming that's still Steve Brown (Wild Mick Brown's brother)  on drums... Drummer Troy Luccketta to take time off the road and to be replaced by Steve Brown at Tesla shows - Sleaze Roxx
