Cool Music Girls Share Their Winter Gift Ideas
The holidays may technically be over, but that doesn't mean there still aren't plenly of occassions for winter gift-giving. From hostess gifts, to belated Xmas presents, to birthdays and thank you trinkets, we have you covered—thanks to our all-knowing supremely stylish cast of awesome music girls. When it comes to style it always seems to us that musicians are one step ahead, so we thought, why not ask some of our favorites what they're giving this time of year. The answers did not disappoint (nice Acne sweater pick, Amber Coffman) and many also surprised us (foot panties? Who knew?) and amused us (that's quite an impassioned plea on behalf of R. Kelly, Chloe Chaidez).
So whatever your gift-giving speed, from silly to chic, there's bound to be something here for you. Happy shopping!
Music is everything to Kate Earl (though she's no slouch when it comes to style either). A year ago she was selling her guitar to make ends meet for her and her baby and now her album Stronger is out. Her rootsy singer-songwriter style and peaceful, easy California vibe (though she's originally from Alaska) make us glad she didn't throw in the towel.
"Music is emotional. Your job is to make people feel something. The best way to do that is to sing and speak from something they've personally been through. That's where I write from," Amber ‘Sevyn' Streeter says. And if the tracks we've heard from her upcoming Atlantic album are any indication, this 26 year old pop/R&B artist has done her job well. Listen to "I Like It" for a preview of what to expect from her.
"Within every culture I lived and loved, music was the greatest form of expression, and I was touched equally by flamenco as I was by palo and perico ripiao," explains Roxiny the Dominican-born, internationally raised (Italy, Spain, Panama & more) musician and singer. Formerly of the duo J'Zabhel. she's struck out on her own in order to stay true to her craft. Her video for "Belong" sums up her dance-tastic sound.
Make no mistake, Kitten is aiming for full-on rock stardom. By 12, the bass-playing Chaidez was opening for indie acts such as Conor Oberst and Midlake in her own band. Though she considers herself a rock nerd and can expound on everything from Cat Power to My Bloody Valentine, there's nothing geeky about the muscular post-punk-meets-new-wave sound on their Cut It Out EP.
