Sera Cahoone :: Only As The Day Is Long

Is there an unfair, uphill battle that female artists face in rock and roll? The battle I refer to is the race to find another female artist with which to compare them to. While we certainly pull out the big, comparative guns for male-fronted rock bands, and solo artists, there isn't quite the sheer vehemence that seems to come out in reviews of female artists. Pity the poor women who were endlessly compared to Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morrisette, or, in the wake of's peak years, Lucinda Williams. Is it that these artists are really that . . .
