I thought I’d do something a bit different with this month’s playlist that I’ve been thinking about doing for a little while now. I always used to struggle with finding female musicians and bands that I loved that weren’t incredibly pop-based in their style of music. So I used to just opt for listening to mostly male-based artists for years.
However, recently (after biting the bullet and upgrading to Spotify Premium) I’ve managed to find so many amazing female artists and it got me thinking that it might be fun to make a playlist of only female and female-fronted bands and artists. So, I’ve selected a few of my favourite female artists and put together a girl power playlist!

My Favourites On The Playlist…
In terms of my favourites on the playlists I’m going to have to say Put Your Records On by Corinne Bailey Rae is my no.1. It’s a song that I’ve loved for years. Even now I love it just as much as I did when I first heard it as a child. On Hold by The XX is another favourite of mine. Their second album was full of so many amazing tracks but the standout track for me was definitely this one. Such a great song!
I’ve loved putting together this little playlist and I’m hoping that you all enjoy it just as much as I do! Let me know what you thought of the artists I included in the playlist, your favourites, any new artists you discovered etc. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
