UOK – Ainjel Emme, Charmian Devi, Zowie


Ainjel Emme releases her sophomore effort “Everyone Is Beautiful.”

Hard Rock guitarist Aingel Emme (Whole Lotta Rosies) channels her inner femme with folk influenced ballads and the longings of a woman’s heart. “Undone” is my favorite track.  P.S. If you want to see some cool lyrical art, check out her lyrics page. It’s so riot grrrl.

Charmian Devi – Montreal singer-songwriter in the style of Patti Smith. Look for her new EP coming soon! But until then you can download two new tracks “Ballots and Bullets” and “Such a Disgrace.”

Zowie – Dance with attitude! Ow!

Australian Electro musician, Zowie takes no prisoners with her pop tunes and dark persona. She’s up and coming fast, with goth-glam and enough hooks to lure any listener in.
