This next band isn't new at all. It's just one that I forgot about, and rediscovered. Have you ever heard of The Gits? I imagine that not too many people have. I actually learned about the The Gits when watching an Unsolved Mysteries show one night. They were a band that was popular in the 90s. Actually they weren't big at all. Only popular in the Seattle area.
Mia Zapata was the lead singers name. She was often described as having a voice like Janis Joplin. It was a really strong, and powerful voice.
Back to the Unsolved Mystery show...Mia Zapata was raped and murdered, while walking home on a July night in 1993. Her murderer left no clues. The case stayed open. In fact Kurt Cobain, Pearl Jam, and Sound Garden sang at a benefit concert for her. Her fans were passionate about wanting to find her murderer.
The police were circling her friends. They couldn't find out anything. Shortly after a film was made about The Gits, DNA evidence led to an arrest and conviction of the killer. He was a traveler, so that made it hard for them to catch him.
It's a little harder than anything I've posted.
Do you think she sounds like Janis Joplin?

Woah, I totally forgot about Unsolved Mysteries. Is that even still on?
Not bad. Reminds me of another era of music. :)
I'm here today to wish you a Happy Mother's Day.
Women are always at risk. Sometimes they forget it. I have never heard of this person but I'm sorry that happened to her.
I liked her sound. I can hear a little Janice in there, though I think she does have her own unique sound.
