I know her personal life has been going down the toilet of late (and showing no sign of stopping the decline), but hearing Amy Winehouse on Back to Black was a revelation. Only heard the album late last year after seeing all the bad press and the terrible live apperances she did as my other half was raving about the album.
The woman sure has talent that's for sure, but I don't know if she can come back from the sad mess she's in.

Not quite what the OP asked for, but right now I'm listening to the sweetest voice I've heard in a long while: Christa Belle, from the band "Hungry Lucy". Try the album "Glo", "To Kill A King" is also supposed to be good. Very lush/syrupy.

Did anybody mention Annie Lennox?

Norah Jones has been mentioned earlier.

Gets my vote too. Lovely voice!

Just heard a new one today, close mic'd and accompanied by a piano and bass. Very airy and detailed.

It was Lizz Wright. New artist with a blues and gospel background. I've ordered her CD.

My favorite female vocalist

I don't know if anyone mentioned:

Tracey Thorn
I love all of her "Every Thing But The Girl" material

I HATE all the other electronic "club mix" crap she did later in her career.

Thanks to all your recommendations, great stuff!

I'd like to add:
Chrissie Hynde (check out the awesome acoustic live cd: Pretenders - Isle of View)
Malia (beautiful cover of Radiohead's "No Surprises" on the Young Bones cd)
Karin Bergquist / Over The Rhine (Almost everything she sings, but I especially love the Ohio cd)
