10 Essential Female-Fronted

Female music artists of the 90s

Famous in her native Iceland for her childhood acting career, and for fronting the ’80s cult band the Sugarcubes, Bjork debuted her self-titled solo effort in 1994 and was catapulted into international superstardom.

She has been nominated for 14 Grammy Awards, one Golden Globe and one Oscar. Her music defies categorization, and she’s dabbled in dance, trance, industrial, jazz, alt-rock and orchestral music, among other styles.

Along the way, she’s scored worldwide hits with ‘It’s Oh So Quiet, ’ ‘Army of Me’ and ‘Hyperballad’. Academy Award-winning director Michael Gondry (‘Science of Sleep’) frequently worked on her videos, making trippy, cinematic masterpieces that were in heavy rotation throughout the ’90s.

If her pixie-ish high-art image made her less relatable to mainstream audiences than some of her peers, her mix of confessional songwriting, warm acoustic tones and colder electronic sounds entranced listeners and made her one of the era’s definitive artists.
