Its been over a decade since Lilith Fair rolled through Cities nationwide but the tour has kicked up again featuring an array of female artists from Lilith co-founder Sarah McLachlan to Kei$ha and Kelly Clarkson. A surprise for Dixie Chick fans will probably be Court Yard Hounds which consists of sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Robison, two of the three founding members of The Dixie Chicks. Other favorites include Norah Jones, Sara Bareilles, Colbie Caillat, and Rhianna.

Among the many artists playing Lilith this year these 16 artists have been hand selected to represent the tour. McLachlan is a given but as a music listener whose love for female artists stretches just about as far from contemporary as can be the only band I can really identify is Tegan &Sara. The albums contemporary commercial pop sensibility is heavy. The few surprises I found on the album were Kate Miller Heidke which has a Jason Mraz/Jack Johnson feel to her track, Rihanna, who honestly I’ve ignored since she appeared on the music scene. Her track Russian Roulette is everything you look for in a song; its passionate, has a great narrative, and Rihanna’s voice is incredible. Ash Koley is a band in the same vain as say Matt & Kim or Mates of State with only two members dropping some catchy pop tunes. Other then that you have your reliable artists such as Norah Jones, Corrine Bailey Rae, and Chantal Kreviazuk, plus some other little surprises from the rest that can be tunes you listen to for a week or so before moving on. The only truly awful throw away on the entire compilation is Kei$ha. Considering this album is chalk full of serious musicians and vocalists who have crafted their sound as an art Kei$ha just stands out like a prosthetic thumb.  As always final judgment is yours. Enjoy.
