recommendation for female vocals - Page 7

post #91 of 161
Hmm, I do not think anyone mentioned Hayley Westenra. The first song on her most recent album actually gave me goosebumps, first time in a long time.

Carmen McRae is waaayyyy underrated. I like some of her versions of Billie Holiday's signature tunes better than Billie's—which is saying alot because I'm kray-zy for Billie Holiday.

Carmen McRae Sings Lover Man (And Other Billie Holiday Classics)

Hayley Westenra latest album "Treasure" theres a song "Sonny" which just floored me, last time one did that was Sarah Mclachlan's "Angel". Both their own voice and a piano (a bit of bass for Sarah too).

I've been listening to Bic Runga and My Brightest Diamond this week. I've seriously been under-utilizing my rig.

Gina Villalobos

She's got a growl to her and a nice remake of "If I Can't Have You"

A lot of voices I'd recommend (Suzanne Vega, Jenny Lewis, Poe) have already come up, but another few with good vocals would be:

Chan Marshalls (Cat Power)
Shirley Manson of Garbage
Johanne Hogg
Tarja Turunen (Formerly of Nightwish)
Sheila Chandra
Azam Ali

A thread about female vocalists not mentioning:

Sandy Denny (of Fairport Convention) and
Linda Thompson (new album out: Versatile Heart)

is not worth to be called a thread about female vocalists. So there.

As for acoustic remakes (not female, sorry): how about Richard Thompson's acoustic version of Oops, I did again (I kid you not) from the album 1000 years of popular music (which might just be the best idea for a concept album. ever.)?
