Andrew Bloom from On The Outside listens to a LOT of music in pretty much every genre. We decided to highlight the female artists that he admires for this piece. In honor of International Women’s Day, the group released a new single called “How Beautiful,” and it is catchier than most songs containing the word “Beautiful” in the title. That says a lot.
