Here is our fourth group of recommended artists that will be performing at SXSW 2018
This list highlights some of the many amazing women that we hope to be able to see at SXSW.Stella Donnelly is an Australian singer/songwriter whose delicate and beautiful voice shares her delicate and personal emotions.
RIYL: Lily Allen, Courtney Barnett, Kesha
Pseudo Genre: Confesional Folk Rock
”Boys Will Be Boys” addresses rape in a misogynistic culture. It could easily serve as an anthem for the #METOO movement
This “Mechanical Bull” video demonstrates how strong her music can be when conveyed in an intimate setting. We hope to see her at a church or other similar setting this March in Austin.
Helena Deland has a beautiful voice and she accompanies it with elegantly layered musical tracks.
RIYL: Adele, Joanna Newsom, Fiona Apple
Pseudo Genre: Elegant Songs written by a singer
”Aix" was our first exposure to Helena and the doubled vocals and backing track coupled with her lead vocals just blew us away.
”There is a Thousand” is a song off of her upcoming album.
Sammus (Enongo Lumumba-Kasongo) is an erudite, Ivy League educated rap artist. She entertains and will likely educate you with her lyrics.
RIYL: Open Mike Eagle, Homeboy Sandman, Lauryn Hill
Pseudo Genre: Scholarly Hip Hop Rock
Immediately upon hearing Sammus I thought of Open Mike Eagle and was pleased to find out she has a song “Qualified” that features Mike.
“1080p” is a very personal track that includes a voice mail from her mother.
