Beth Colegrove (Boston, MA)

Beth Colegrove’s lyrics have a confessional and poetic style, underscored by jaunty acoustic guitars and harmonies that bring Girlyman to mind. Her song, “Toothbrush Aisle” is so infectious and sweet that I find myself humming it as I write. Beth already has a full-length album, Elephant Heart, and is planning to release her second in the near future.

Tarah Who? (Los Angeles, CA)

Tarah G. Carpenter has been rocking people’s socks off from the Paris to LA, and her new solo project Tarah Who? is no exception. With the help of friends Dustin (drums) and Ash (bass), Tarah Who? delivers a fierce blend of punk and indie rock. Tarah’s voice, which is husky and powerful, cuts through the screaming rock riffs like a warm knife through butter. After listening to a few tracks, I found myself wishing there was a mosh pit in the vicinity.

Heather Green (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Heather Green is a Californian native, now living in Halifax. Her silky alto voice draws you in, while the moody pop guitar riffs and beats put you in a nicely chilled out place. Heather’s music is very approachable, while being deceptively complex, which is a rare skill. Her latest album, The Last War , has been nominated for four East Coast Music Awards this year.
