This summer, outspoken women are telling listeners exactly what they think

Lyrically rich, new albums from Bones UK, Inna and K. Flay are musically sound too and sure to keep you moving during these hot summer months.

Even after eight years as frontman for the iconic Queen, Adam Lambert is still billed as a separate entity — and still feels the need to explain his role.

“I know what some of you may be thinking,” he has told concert crowds on more than one occasion. “I’m just going to call it out: ‘He’s no Freddie.’ No shit! Because there will only be one rock god named Freddie Mercury.”

Andrea Nardello’s music is the anthem of an open heart.

In “Human,” the title single from the EP she released last summer, Nardello’s crushed-velvet vocals top driving strings and the comfortable strum of her guitar as she sings, “Hold me now/I’m human/I’m broken/Come now.”

Broadway has made more than a few solo vocal stars  — Idina Menzel, Robert Goulet, Leslie Odom Jr., and Barbra Streisand to name a few.

Ben Platt, however, is a different animal: one who purrs, not roars. He doesn’t bellow or bolt for the rafters with each clarion call.

Philly singer Martha Stuckey, has launched a local concert series created by womxn, performed by womxn and celebrating womxn musicians.

Called “The Thank You Next Show,” the May 18 concert is billed as an “all womxn single release and tribute” and will feature performances by Stuckey, Sophie Coran and out performer MG Vasio from The Lez Wedding Band. 

Stuckey said she was inspired to produce the concert series after witnessing a fair amount of sexist attitudes in the music scene while she was with her last band.
