Singer and guitarist Zoe Boekbinder describes her personal style as "geek glam," but her music's been praised as old-school folk-y pop. A theater nerd in high school, she took up singing after her friends goaded her on. After school, Boekbinder and her sister formed a band called Vermillion Lies--an outfit that produced albums in 2006 and 2008. After the release of their second album, the two went their separate ways musically, but never stopped recording tunes. (Her sister still writes and performs as Kim Boekbinder.) In 2009, the beyond-charming Boekbinder recorded a solo album in Brooklyn, NY, and she's currently on tour, so don't miss her when she arrives in your hometown. (You can track her movements on Facebook or Twitter.)

Here's an exclusive look at her brilliant latest video, for the song "Salt Water":
