5 Female Singers to Watch Out For in 2011 & Beyond



Here’s a list of five women who broke through to wider audiences in 2010 or are going to in 2011. They have done so purely on the strength of their talent without needing to resort to any gimmicks or put on personas. Some of them are already quite well known while others you might be hearing of for the first time.

– Adele


Adele is a 22 year old British singer songwriter who has the most powerful vocal chops that I’ve seen on a woman in a long time. She already has a couple of Grammys to her name (2009). Her new album 21 just came out in Jan this year and Rolling in the Deep is the first single from it.

Keep a ear or two out for that voice 🙂

Sara Barielles

Sara Bareilles

Probably the most familiar name on this list (I hope!!) Sara Bareilles has been making music for a while now but it’s her second album Kaleidoscopic Heart in 2009 that hit No.1 on the Billboard album charts that brought her into the limelight.

Sara makes piano based pop/ rock songs with witty, insightful lyrics and her song King of Anything is a fine example of that.

  1. Here’s a real tester for you. The other day I heard an interview with a female singer/songwriter but I couldn’t catch her name. Her first name sounded something like Iana, Irwana, Ioanna?? Her second name was double barrelled with the first part starting with W???? – ????

    Apparently she’s just brought out a new album. Can anyone identify her, pse?

  2. Thanks ghansh, but no, unfortunately. I just heard the interview but couldn’t catch the name. She sang a track from an album she’s recently released (and plays guitar on it). I’m absolutely no music buff but this track was just fantastic and I was hoping to buy the album.

    I’ve looked through the BBC web archives but can’t find any mention of the interview – and I can’t even remember which show it was on. Doh!! Ah well, I’ll just have to keep my ears open.

  3. I heard her too and could not catch the name. She was really good had white blond hair was 27 her lyrics were deep and her voice was haunting. I have been trying to find her but can’t so far I thought it was from the sunday morning tv show but nothing shows up when I search for her. If you find her let me know.

  4. Is it Laura Marling?

  5. To: Yes wings.

    Her name is Florance + the machine I want her and Kellie Luvella the song “Down”

    Have a nice day!!!

  6. i cant remember this artist’s name but it starts with the letter B and one of her songs has the word people in it. please help me hehe

  7. Don’t forget Jackie Evancho she is 11 years old and now has almost 3 million cds sold.

  8. I don’t know this singers’ name or even a song by her, i just remember what she looked like: Brunette, early twenties. She has a new album (don’t know the name of it either) But she was wearing a mask with (i think) peacock feathers on the cover. she sounds like a combination of Lady Gaga and Ke$ha or something like it. it was either a new or debut album. i have the video running in my head without music, driving me nuts. I think her name started with and n or k honestly no other clue….please help me out on this?

  9. Florence and the machine, Lana Del Ray and Regina Spector…..amazing voices which are all so unique and great songs!!!!

  10. To John, the beautiful voice you discovered belongs to Birdy, who does an amazing cover of Skinny Love by Bon Iver and also has her own song entitled “People Help the People.
