A lot of groovy things happened in the ‘60s and ‘70s; not the least of which was an awesome shift in the music scene! Sylvie Vartan (pictured above) was just one of the many female artists that made her mark on music history. Vartan was not American but was one of many talented women who made a name for themselves in the music world. The groovy music phenomenon wasn’t exclusive to the U.S. or any other country but was iconic just the same.

During the groovy era, the United States produced a lot of very notable music artists.  The '60s and ‘70s was an epic decade for female rock n’ roll stars!

The counterculture demographic was known for their fondness of classic rock n’ roll as well as other music genres. Not surprisingly, many popular music artists/groups were primarily men. The woman’s place in any given group was historically a backup role. This concept being the norm, it was somewhat shocking when many notable females, American music artists stole the scene in the groovy era.

Following are some iconic female music artists who are considered “the real deal” and played a huge role in shaping the development and success of music history.
