Beth Ditto is the lead singer of this trio of a band are an American Indie rock sounding that formed in 1999. I love her voice! She has this post punk indie rock vibe and with her lyrics that advocate gay rights, these songs have soul. Not only are the songs vibrant but as well as her performance. I saw her at Coachella 2010, and her set was amazing! I didn't see one person not dancing. My favorite songs are Heavy Cross, and Listen Up! Also Your Mangled Heart. The best way I can describe Gossip is a punk rock / chic version of Adele. If that makes sense. . So LISTEN UP!Oh and while you are at it, check out her live performance on Alexa chung !
