Samantha Gongol
Who: Philadelphia-born vocalist Samantha Gongol is one half of American alt-pop duo Marian Hill 

Why she's fearless: The first song Samantha wrote with producer Jeremy Lloyd (and the other member of Marian Hill), called "Whisky," describes a woman in control of her own sexuality. It's certainly a theme throughout the rest of the duo's music. Samantha sings tracks like "Differently" and "Back To Me" with an effusive and striking kind of swagger all her own. 

Our musical picks: "Subtle Thing," "Got It," and "Wish You Would"
