In December, I asked WAOD readers to help me find a Black woman who was a singer songwriter along the lines of Taylor Swift. Read Where is Our Taylor Swift So during the entire month of February, we're featuring the young women recommended by your fellow WAOD readers. Therefore if any of the artists have raunchy lyrics hidden under a rock somewhere, blame your fellow WAOD readers!
Up next is Priscilla Renea
I like her lyrics and her style. I like her hair and her makeup and her stage presence. I would purchase a single from her. or at least this acoustic version of her song "Love Sick."
She reminds me of one of those quirky British singers before they come to America and we corrupt them. This song "Rockaby Baby" is very much like Taylor Swift's song about being 15. Socially relevant story telling.
Here is another one that's cute "Hello My Apple."
PS. If you are offended by us using the term Black Taylor Swift, my response is... um deal with it. Your sensibilities will survive.
THE PERIOD OF SUGGESTIONS IS CLOSED! So don't email me all these wonderful artists that you now want included. The posts have already been written in advance and no additional artists or modifications will be made. Just take note the next time I ask you to give me names, and participate.
