Houston's 10 Hottest Female Singers

Categories: Best of Houston

hottestsingersheader.jpg
Lately I have had the pleasure of reporting on a lot of our city's female front women, and let me tell you something; they are a good-looking bunch. We don't just grow good sets of pipes in Houston, we make sure the packaging is first rate as well. Today we look at a few of the best looking girls onstage that you can catch in the clubs.

Oh, and just a note, every single one of the girls listed here is a first-rate musician with tremendous talent. We are not in any way trying to objectify them. We're just saying that there is more than one upside to seeing them live.

10. Michelle Miears, BLSHS
A relative newcomer to the Houston electronic music scene is electro-siren Michelle Miears. She's a sweet-faced girl with a shy smile that sometimes hides behind a cascade of tousled brunet hair. Waif thin with legs that disappear miles above her standard stage attire of a mini-skirt, she's a pale, ghostly vision to behold.

9. Doomstress Alexis, Project Armageddon
You might recognize the Doomstress from recently having an entire day named after her by Mayor Parker in honor of her work in the transgender community. Alexis rocks a body that obviously never misses the gym, and is comfortable in either her leather Lita Ford look or even in a full on evening gown when the mood hits her. One thing's for certain, she is completely unmistakable.

8. Zahira Gutierrez, Wild Mocassins
The Moccasins have really become indie-scene darlings, and some of that has to be laid at the quirky appeal of their frontwoman. Zahira is one of the more fearless women in Houston music when it comes to fashion sense, and always conveys a welcome tone under her wild locks. She's got a poise and warmth that can melt any heart.

Why was Kam Lincoln from The Suffers left off the list? She's ridiculously talented AND dead sexy!

why controversial?  glad to see Alexis, Ash Kay and Asli Omar made the list.  you're missing Tessa Kole, though.

Not controversial. What's the difference between naming 10 best or worst places to eat and 10 hottest female singers? IMO, none. Just an opinion.

Thanks for the exposure, Jef! As a local artist/musician, it's a thrill to see my band's name mentioned anywhere, especially in the Houston Press. You're an excellent writer and a great person, and it was an honor to be mentioned in an article featuring so many amazing Houstonian women. Our page has received a slew of new "likes" since that article went up, and I know we have you to thank for it. You're a local band's best champion, and your support means the world to us. Haters gonna hate; you just keep doing your thing.

Pro-sex feminism > Anti-sex feminism. We are integrated human beings, and our sexuality is a part of who we are. And it's ok to appreciate our sexuality, just as it's ok to appreciate other things about us (intellect, talent, personality, etc). To pick which things are ok to write about and which aren't is censorship.

Yes, they're ranked, for what it's worth. Let me lay this out. Pretty much every woman on the list is a woman who I came to know or know of through her talents as part of my work as a journalist. i didn't just pick them out of a line-up. Most of them I contacted beforehand and let them know what I was doing and if they had a picture they preferred for this purpose (Zahira is an exception because HP already had a very nice picture of her I liked). So for the last several years I found myself with a pretty wide net of talented female artists, and one day I thought. "I bet calling them the hottest women in Houston music would get their names around some more." So I picked out my favorites, and crowd sourced a few suggestions to see who I might have missed, and put together a list. I think Alex is climbing up a very high horse with no saddle. All online written content is designed to attract clicks. And if a piece runs longer than 600 words I split pages for the exact reason he mentions. It gets more hits. That's how online journalism paid for with ads works. I'll leave with this... several days before this article went live I penned a very in depth piece on female equality in gaming. I was very proud of it. It took me three days to write and I showed it to a variety of people who I considered experts on the subject for advice and revising. And that article went nowhere. That's fine. I write what I want and I'll keep writing feminist articles just the same. But sometimes I write stuff like this too. I'm not ashamed of it. At all. Sorry. http://blogs.houstonpress.com/artattack/2013/08/video_game_female_enemies.php

Jef, were they actually listed in any particular order? I was under the impression that it was just a list of 10 hot female singers. I don't think that he's objectifying them, either. He talks about their talents and personality; it's more than just looks that make a woman hot, and Jef recognizes that I think.

Autumn Smith

So...are people not allowed to talk about attractive women, then? You as much as called Jef a "Click Whore", which I think is unfair. I thoroughly enjoyed this article, especially since I am friends with one of the hot, hot women on this list, and am acquainted with several more. It's OK to write an article that's fun and silly and sexy. Not everything has to be about serious issues. The readers would probably just get burned out if that were the case. Everything in balance.

Ugh. I expect more from Jef Withonef. And to do it as a four part story, can the click grubbing get any more shameless? What's next, the infamous "When is the Superbowl" article? There are better ways to get impressions than pandering to the lowest common denominator.

quasi-feminist outrage over "objectification" aside, thanks for the list - now I have some new acts to go seek out. Haven't heard of several of these, and I love finding new (to me) local acts no matter who's fronting them. PS: next time you might want to add Annika Chambers to the list!

One time I was at a friend's house with my girlfriend and my friend's dad was home and drinking with us. We all got pretty drunk and then the dad was putting off this real gross horny vibe and kind of hitting on my girlfriend and I got really uncomfortable because of how rapey he sounded. I got that feeling again when I read this article. 

"Attributes". *shudder*

This list is bad and you should feel bad.

I just don't think that any of the women this article is written about feel objectified. Jef has written on my artistic talent before, alone, leaving me completely out of it. He even mentions my hats in the article, when he really didn't have to. I don't know any women that would be offended by being called "hot". That's a compliment. At least to me, it is. And thanks for including me, Jef, and the other pretty and talented women in the article.

Wow. You really don't seem to get it at all, man.

I get that you're saying physical appearance is "on the table" when it comes to a musician performing in public (as misguided as that is), but the difference is that where you can discuss rankings amongst your friends, you are representing yourself, your paper, your city, and your industry when you post something like this. You've got a responsibility to not have to publish this kind of article, regardless of how innocent you think it is. There's a vast problem with these kind of articles that you don't seem to really make strides toward understanding. This is evidenced by you trying to hide behind saying you are NOT trying to objectify, despite this line falling just two sentences after "We don't just grow good sets of pipes in Houston, we make sure the packaging is first rate as well."

For the most part, I do enjoy your articles but whatever world you're living in to not see much of an issue in posting what amounts to a lazy afternoon of work is one of profound false understanding.

I can't believe that some people don't see how this is offensive. If you have to preface an article with a warning about how you don't mean to objectify women, chances are you are going to objectify them. You clearly don't understand what objectification means. No matter the intention, offense was taken. That alone should make you step back and re-evaluate the content of this article. You can try to justify it all you want, but it still won't make it right.

As a woman who works in a predominantly male field, I know first hand what it is like to not be taken seriously by my coworkers just because of my gender. That is one thing that a male will never experience. I'm sure that most, if not all, of these women want to be taken seriously as musicians and ranking their appearance is a giant step back for them. It is this sort of judgmental thought process that keeps women from being thought of as equal to men. Would you go see an all-male band because of their appearance? Or their talent?

I can't believe after all that Miley stuff that you write this article. I'm sure all these women are great artists (I love BLSHS) so why can't you just call it "Houston's BEST Female Singers"? Why do their looks have to be so important?

I can't believe this article is being so poorly received by some of the commenters.  The Houston music scene is a sprawling sea of performers, most of which I'm sure I've never heard of.  This article introduced me to bands I'd never even heard of and would have never thought to seek out. Maybe this article wasn't about the actual musical talent but it brought names to the surface.  I like all kinds of music but I'm relatively new to the live music scene in Houston so I'm always on the look out for new talent and new acts to discover.  Thanks to Jef, I now have some new bands in my bag and can't wait to seek out performances.  But I'm also the type of person that will absolutely drop a band if its members are "too cool for school" and don't give credit to those trying to promote or support them.

Fact of the matter is, this article is free publicity.  Maybe it will get you some new, potential fans.  Maybe it will get your [band's] name a little further out into the universe.  Maybe it will let a potential fan know you can't take a compliment and just be gracious.  Either way, I know I'll be seeking out Caretta Bell...and it has NOTHING to do with her looks.

I take this article in the way I believe it was meant to be given, as a compliment!!!!  Thank you so very much!  There's nothing wrong with someone taking time out of their life to compliment you on your beauty and talent which was clearly what the writer intended to do and did in my opinion. I graciously accept it as such.  Much luv #7 - Caretta Bell :-)

I'd just like to say that I completely disapprove of this. Actually I'm repulsed. These women and I are being objectified with very little written about our actual talents.

And no, you writing articles in the past about women making art doesn't justify this article. The fact of the matter is that you will not be able to justify it because you can never know what it's like to be a female musician. It's one thing to constructively criticize someone's art, but this is just unnecessary and in bad taste. I find it to be both disgusting and regressive to rank a woman's looks considering the known unattainable standards in society that we deal with everyday. You can't attach a number value on a human based on something so shallow and subjective.

Taking the time to only call a woman "hot" doesn't make her feel validated, it actually makes it seem like that is where you believe her worth lies.

So I'm asking to be removed from this list and I hope the other women listed follow suit. This is truly an embarrassment to the Houston music scene.

Sincerely,

Number 8

All of the people whining about sexism are overweight feminists who think equality means special rights for them.  And the tranny!?  Are you serious?  I get it Houston, you're progressive and everything is ok now.  But c'mon.. that confused thing has a dick... or wants one, I'm not even sure.

@christine.biehle I actually met Tessa after I finished the list a month ago, and regret not including her.

@Robert Schroeder We do the best female singers in the HPMAs every year. nd for the record, I wrote this more than a month ago. I just didn't get it formatted until last week.

@Zahira888 All I can say is that no offense was meant, than that the article was intended to be a celebration of what I consider the exceptional physical beauty of the Houston music scene. If it makes you feel any better, I've spent all week defending you, personally.

"Never heard of any of them," is what half a dozen people have said.

"Really? You've never heard of Wild Moccasins? Then I can't help you."

I apologize if it made you feel objectified or degraded. You were one of the few people I wasn't able to get a hold of prior to writing it, but had so vocal a nomination from various people I felt it would be wrong to ignore you.

@JefWithOneF @claymonster This is why you should never trust a hipster to know what's acutally going on anywhere outside Mango's, Fitz, Super Happy, and Walter's. Jeez, you probably don't know who Trudy Lynn is either. How can these ten be the "hottest" if you haven't checked em all? Superlatives are best used sparingly for a reason.

@JefWithOneF @claymonster She's a solo artist - blues. Performs with "The House Rules Band" or "Houston All Stars" and just won best female vocals in your music awards.

@JefWithOneF In all seriousness, would you really pay to go see them? If so, would it be due to their appearance or talent?

If you wouldn't, then this is a very poor retaliation. Are you assuming that I would go see them just because I am female? I would not. I, personally, am not a fan of their music and I don't agree with the music industry trying to sexualize those young men to such young girls. I don't believe objectification should be placed upon either sex. Two wrongs do not make a right.

@Oni88 @JefWithOneF I'm just saying the number of female Thor fans went up significantly after Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston starred in a movie. I'm saying that folks that went to see Jim Morrison hump an amp were not bad folks, nor was the industry that put him shirtless on an album cover being any more exploitative than they are with any other aspect of the their business. 

I'm sorry, but appearance is not off the table for the critique of a performance artist. I've been one myself, and you had best believe that people came to see me play Frank n Furter based on how I looked in the costume.
