Volcano

Lead Performer: Edie Brickell; Producer (group): Universal

As the lead singer of the ’80s hippie-rock band the New Bohemians, Brickell was always sharper than her Birkenstock-babe image let on. Some 15 years later, her chirpy voice – once the quirk that irked – has matured into a dusky croon.

And why shouldn’t they?
