As in, new or emerging female artists that may produce some decent music (rather than trying to predict who is going to become popular). Here are 5 from me. As ever, say what you think of my choices or post some of your own...or let the thread quietly die .


I like the sound of this young Danish girl's songs and not just because I'm a sucker for hand claps and finger clicks. She does seem like she could genuinely be a bit mad/eccentric too which is good.

Banks
Talked about her before. Smooth R&B with some good production (R&B doesn't always have to be a dirty word).

Courtney Barnett
I liked a song I heard from this Australian girl last year and she's just released this even better one. There is just something very charming about her voice and very quotable lyrics.

Fallulah
Not really new, she's had some success in her home country of Denmark but there seems to be a bit of a push to promote her elsewhere. Seems to have some catchy songs, kind of reminiscent of Lykke Li but I need to listen to more.

Laura Groves
Bit of a wild card but she is basically unknown. She's got this good new song which could be a step forward for her musically. It's certainly renewed my interest in her future output.

Runner- up of The Voice UK 2013 Leah McFall is an exciting new artist who I predict BIG things for. She is currently writing and recording her debut album with the enlisted help of Will.i.am and many others.

Lorde's getting some attention isn't she? I'm struggling to see the appeal but maybe I will after I've heard more songs.

Lorde's one getting quite a bit of hype right now. Her single (''Royals'') is doing very well on US iTunes, and some people are tipping it to be the next ''Somebody That I Used To Know'', and people are already talking about the follow-up too, ''Tennis Court''.

That's it confirmed then; Lorde is clearly going to be the next big thing as Smudged can't see the appeal Joking aside, I think she has potential for such a young artist, especially compared to what I experienced with the artists in the OP. But let's wait until we get the album and we'll be in a better position to judge her then...

Without a doubt Ariana Grande, she is very hyped up at the minute, but she deserves it, i'm listening to her album for the first time now and its great so far, her voice really is something special.

Agree with Tamar Braxton, not a new artist, her first album came out in 2000, but its her reintroduction, cant wait for her new album, sounds great from the snippets.

That's all I can really think off atm, even though women dominate the charts, i'm noticing that there haven't been many new female artists emerging recently since Gaga theres really been no one, in comparison to male artists with people like Miguel, Frank Ocean, Tinie Tempah, J Cole, Big Sean, Ed Sheeran,Bruno Mars etc who have become massive in the last 2-3 years.

Florrie's well past her sell by date and Lorde is a Poundshop LDR!

I've listened to both The Love Club and Tennis Court EP's and the only thing I like is her Replacements cover as I'm a fan of the original.

I've seen Fallulah live a few times and she's fantastic but she's never going to get anywhere in the UK.

Don't rate Chloe Howl much but I do love her freckles!

lol, that is so sad and typical of you. Criticising my choices without coming up with any of your own. Still bitter than I don't rate LDR or Birdy very highly?

In case you still haven't realised I couldn't care less who is going to be the 'next big thing'. I even made a point of saying that's not what the thread's about but you're so obsessed with popularity that you couldn't stop yourself mentioning it .

OK , not bad

Poor , thumbs down from me

Courtney Barnett

Best track on your list

Fallulah
Not really new, she's had some success in her home country of Denmark but there seems to be a bit of a push to promote her elsewhere. Seems to have some catchy songs, kind of reminiscent of Lykke Li but I need to listen to more.

So so

Laura Groves

2nd place in your list

Not a single female singer , but two who share vocals in their group . Lucius with Go Home

Is that because you like their music or because you fancy one or all of the members?

for this year my fave new female singer/songwriters who haven't yet released albums are:
Frida Sundemo
(you will probably like if you like robyn, royksopp or lykke li)

Lorde

Nina Nesbit

Christine and the Queens

Foxes

Moya


female artists who deserve notice after a hidden gem of a debut album ....

Kristina Train - sublime jazz voice
Lianne la Havas - Emeli Sande overshadowed her, but she is just as good, and they are both two very different modern soul talents.
Karima Francis -modern tracy chapman/joan armatrading
Natalia Kills - pop diva ... very lady gaga but perhaps darker

Ariana Grande, just her vocal talent alone is impressive but she oozes star quality too. I'm very impressed by her album.

I need to check her out at some point. She supported Laura Marling and got some good reviews.

The other new female artist I think could produce something really good in future is Torres. Debut album is pretty good but it wasn't until I heard her sing live that I realised how strong and flexible her voice is:
