The inimitable Jennifer Zuiff, better known as Indee Killed the Popstar, takes the gold this year with her superhuman vocals. The songstress' classical and opera training allow her to melt hearts with ease. Not only are her vocals as flawless as it gets, but her passion for music fills the air with sweetness and lights a fire inside anyone with a soul. She sings for herself - we're just lucky enough to bear witness. She's steadily working on a new record and has been actively playing shows around ATL and beyond. less...

Mention the name INDIA.ARIE and you’ll conjure images of ever-changing hairstyles, sweet-smelling incense and colorful headwraps. But bug all that: The lady can sing, as she proves on her latest album, the recently released Testimony: Vol. 1, Life & Relationship. Employing a range that rivals Stevie Wonder, her deep, rich tone and complex — yet accessible — arrangements add soul to any tune she chooses to grace.

Now working the solo beat following the premature crack-up of former band Radiant City, Melancon crafts somber, yet insistently catchy, acoustic pop that's probably too smart for today's "hair-gelled" and "silicon-breasted" radio set. Too bad, because in a perfect world, his wry, reflective lyrics, indelible melodies and sweet voice would be drowning out the Mouseketeer pop trash currently choking the airwaves. less...
