About this playlist

We'd like to present the very best Songstresses in this special playlist! Female singer songwriters have enjoyed purple patch of success in the last few years and there's never been a better example with our starter artist Adele. But there are so many more artists, perhaps who haven't had the attention they deserve, that are producing captivating and evocative music. Laura Marling has excelled herself with new album 'Semper Femina', a real organic journey of a variety of musical influences, then in a similar vein listen to the vulnerable teenage talent of Billie Marten who provided one of our favourite albums last year with her debut 'Writing Of Blues and Yellows'. Then comes Aussie-Brit talent Emmi who was cherry picked by J K Rowling to appear on the Fantastic Beasts soundtrack with a voice like honey on the ear.

For soaring vocals, there's rarely a better example than Swedish singer Skott on her song 'Porcelein' and the gentle guitar and soft vocals from Bolton born Janileigh Cohen is like something caught in a time capsule from a earlier era. The fabulous Lucy Rose delights as always on new single 'Floral Dresses' and we've squeezed in a couple of NapsterLive session tracks from Izzy Bizu and Gabrielle Aplin. Finally, don't miss also the latest treats from Emma Pollock, Regina Spekter, Valerie June and Karen Elson.
