Girl Groups and Singers!


Here are more of the 750-plus girl groups and solo singers who had the sound between 1960-1966 on the U.S. and U.K. charts. Some were one-hit wonders that never made the national charts or got national attention. Some had regional or even local hits. Also included here are a few from other countries besides the U.S. and U.K.

Special thanks to
Steve Parker, of New Hampshire, who provided extensive information and voluntarily conducted countless hours of research for this list.

If you have information on any of these artists and groups, please e-mail us at Add to the Girl-Groups list. Please provide as much information as possible: name of group/singer and song, year released, label, etc.
