With her signature platinum-blond bob, Kewpie-doll features and soaring voice, Welsh singer Ritzy Bryan is responsible for some of the catchiest songs on our iPod. Her band The Joy Formidable, for which she fills the role of both lead vocalist and guitarist, is somewhat reminiscent of the great female-fronted rock bands of the ’90s—but it’s their songs’ sweeping choruses and crashing drums that really make the group’s work so appealing.
Currently touring to promote her 2011 album, The Big Roar, along with bandmates Rhydian Dafydd and Matt Thomas, Ritzy’s seemingly boiled her personal style down to a few can’t-miss essentials. She lives in Peter Pan-collared dresses, full skirts and opaque tights, and favors statement earrings that play up her blunt-cut blond hair. And since she’s been known to leap around the stage with wild abandon during those guitar solos, this petite singer always chooses sturdy wedges and boots over spindly stilettos.
