In 2003, Michelle Branch seemed to flash-freeze in our collective pop cultural memory as the girl in hip-hugging boot-cut jeans and a black tank top.

With two platinum albums and a crop of wildly catchy singles— "Everywhere," "All You Wanted," and "Are You Happy Now"—she was the voice of every love-struck high-schooler in the country, and still a teenager herself.

It's been 14 years since Branch released her last solo album.

In that time, Branch got married, had a child, separated from her husband, put out an album as part of a country music duo, and … Even for fans who have the lyrics to her hits drilled into some layer of their subconscious, she was often still a product of early aughts nostalgia.

Martino's not the only one struggling to date in a female-dominated scenario, whether that's a college, profession, or city where women outnumber men.
