We lost another amazing female musician this week. Phoebe Snow, folk guitarist, vocalist, and prolific composer, died on 04/26/11 from complications stemming from a brain hemorrhage. With smooth, mellow hits, her greatest exposure came from her song “Poetry Man” in 1975.
Strum on Sister!

“Some people think little girls should be seen and not heard, But I think — Oh bondage, up yours!”
Stickin’ it to the power, standing up for girls, FOREVER.
