Let's just get down to brass tacks. A solid female vocalist doing something against the grain seems to be a little harder to find than the latter. That makes sense though - they are gems after all. Bri Bagwell for example -  wonderful vocalist, great writer, awesome performer.

As it just so happens, there's a few of these hidden gems in our music scene that you may or may not have taken note of. Here are a few ladies (or duos) I believe have something amazing to offer, and deserve more attention:

5. The Whiskey Sisters

4. Haley Cole

3. Kylie Rae Harris

2. Courtney Patton

1. Jamie Wilson
