Kylie: Every Day’s Like Christmas

Though I try to be inclusive, I must admit that my favorite holiday is Christmas. Mind you, I’m as gay as all hell and am agnostic to boot; however, the music, the decor, the festiveness of it all is what keeps me coming back for more each year. Kylie Minogue released one of the campiest…

Dido: Still on My Mind

MARIAH: CAUTION

Team! It’s finally happening. I’ve been waiting for this moment since I was a young child in 1993 laying in bed listening to Hero on repeat. What is finally happening you may ask? I’m seeing Mariah Carey live in concert whilst she is on her Caution World Tour. Considering the quality of the music being…

Paulina Rubio: Pau Power

I still remember this moment like it was yesterday. It was the summer of 2000 and a song came on the radio that just inspired me to believe that living in 100-degree weather was worth it. This was a song that sounded like summer, was inspired by summer, and ingrained itself in your thoughts by…

Thalia: Arrasando

Purchasing Shakira’s Donde Estan Los Ladrones opened so many musical doors for me. It opened the flood gates to a genre of music I never felt comfortable listening to but was a part of my heritage and identity. Shakira was considered Latin Rock. Her grungy look and distinct vocals made her a critical darling; however, there […]

Ralph: Good Girl

First, the skinny on Ralph. This Toronto bred musician is a trained vocalist who was inspired by the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Prince, David Bowie and The Temptations. Writing and recording as Ralph since 2015, the progression into her debut album has been a growth of sorts. Starting off with singles, releasing a self-titled EP…

Shakira: Donde Están Los Ladrones?

A little bit about me: I’m Hispanic. English was my second language, Spanish being my first. I grew up with my grandparents in a household where on Sundays Spanish was the only language spoken at the dinner table out of respect for our elders. English was spoken at our proper home with our parents and…

Just Shy: The Interview

Honestly, you’ve got to love gay twitter for so many reasons. Not only for the glitz and glamour of it all, but because the network is so connected to music that you stumble upon many great artists you may have missed if you relied only on the forces that are Spotify and iMusic. Just Shy…

Carrie Underwood: Cry Pretty

Carrie Underwood’s new album is a triumph. There’s no other way to say that what she’s done is mature, classy, appealing, timely and extremely approachable. Serviceable to boot. This album is chockfull of massive songs and meaningful moments that let you into her state of mind, something she’s rarely done before. I’ve been listening to…
