IR: The SoCal Sessions #18 – Les Musiciens de Femmes de Californie Meridionale

Hey music junkie! First time here? Click over to and get all of our content (tons of music) delivered for free. Enjoy your time here, and keep it loud!

This session has a French title although it was probably butchered by the Babel Fish free translator to mean something completely offensive. In a perfect world it should roughly translate to ‘Female Musicians of Southern California’, which equates to ten great tracks of Southern California mainstream rock, indie rock, pop, folk and some blues mixed in to make quite the mixture for today’s session.

Why French? Well, I found a nice little song by Otis Fodder called ‘Nouis Amons Oui’ that you hear somewhere near the beginning that sets the tone. In addition we have a ’20s blues opener by Kansas old-timer Lottie Kimbrough can be found in the free-for-download musicbed in our shownotes.

From China, to Baltimore, New York, Texas and Alabama, we have a nice series of ten diverse songs from some of the best up-and-coming female artists who now call the area home, or have all along. Enjoy and please help support these artists where you can.
