 In 2005 Inara released her debut album ‘All Rise’. Produced and largely co-written by Michael Andrews (of the ‘Donnie Darko’ score), ‘All Rise’ is a collection of lush, intimately crafted songs. Almost all of the songs are written by Inara George herself. It does contain a cover of ‘Fools in Love’, a Joe Jackson song. She is currently working on 2 projects: George is Jones and The Bird and the Bee.

Butterfly currently resides in the United States. She released her first track of the album, “I Can’t Make Me,” in the UK first. It did poorly. However, when she released that track along with “Another White Dash,” her U.S. success was assured. While a second album is in the pipeline, there is no official date for its release.

The more I hear her voice, the more I want to listen to her music! It’s understated singer/songwriters like this that I appreciate and feel like it’s worth spending money on; when you buy the music, because it’s something personal they’ve poured their heart and soul into, unlike some commercial rubbish out there. This is what real talent should sound like.

Aimee Mann

Aimee Mann was born in Richmond, Virginia, and attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, but dropped out to sing with her first punk rock band, the young snakes; the band released the EP Bark Along with the Young Snakes in 1982, and a compilation album was issued in 2004. In 1983, seeking a return to “sweetness and melody”, she co-founded with Berklee classmate and boyfriend Michael Hausman the new wave band ’Til Tuesday, which achieved minor success in 1985 with its first album, Voices Carry. In 1993 Mann released Whatever, her first solo album. Promotion suffered due to the collapse of her label, Imago. While only a small hit, the album was critically praised, and paved the way for her next release, 1995’s I’m with Stupid, through Geffen Records. Again, reviews were positive, but sales were weak. Mann has released a total of 10 solo albums most recent being ‘@#%&*! Smilers
‘ released earlier this year.

I love Lene Marlin, I haven’t heard from her since her hit ‘Unforgivable Sinner’ but she’s an amazing singer/song writer, her last album ‘Lost In A Moment’ was released in 2005. If you haven’t heard her music, you’re missing out! The only recent recognition from Lene, is that she had written a song for Rihanna, entitled “Good Girl Gone Bad”. (from Rihanna’s “Good Girl Gone Bad” album). However there are rumors that she’s currently in the studio recording a new album? It’s not confirmed, but if it’s anything like what you hear below, here’s hopeing!!
