Hum,appears to be a correlation between a female singers looks and her popularity.

 

I wonder what Mama Cass would have said about that.

You dont know Diana Krall!?!?

 

She's got a lovely, sultry singing voice.

Wow, you don't know Carrie Underwood?  JK!  wink.gif

 

Did I forget Feist and Sade in my original post?  Criminal omissions by me.

Just checked out Diana Krall....that is everything a lot of the things I hate put into one person. Achievement unlocked!

 

The biggest thing is the contralto voice...Katy Perry has one too but she doesn't use it all the time.

Geddy Lee.

 

But seriously, Sunny Kim (jazz), Tarja Turunen (metal) and then a random slew of single songs and soundtracks from various artists. I'm actually surprised I don't listen to more female vocalists...

Mmm... contralto. I loves it I does. I need to check Diana Krall out now based on your "recommendation". tongue.gif

A long time ago I walked into a record store and the song playing in it made the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end - I wasn't even a jazz fan, but Diana Krall's All For You album put me under a spell. 

 

The next time that happened was Shelby Lynne's Just A Little Lovin' - and the album sounds so good. 

 

The more I listen to Sarah Mclachlan's Laws of Illusion, the more I like it. It's an awesome album.

 

The ladies who sing on Zero 7's albums are great too - Sophie Barker, Tina Dico, Sia Furler (check out Simple Things). Tina Dico has a solo album out called In The Red, and Sophie Barker guested on the amazing Bliss album Quiet Letters. On the same  - downtempo - note, early Hooverphonic is also very very nice. Check out Blue Wonder Power Milk or the classic A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular

 

I also like My Brightest Diamond's A Thousand Shark's Teeth quite a bit.

I think Diana Krall is really quite talented.  I saw her live 10+ years ago, and she is an outstanding pianist in addition to being a very good singer.

 

Which reminds me of another favorite I forgot to mention, who is a very good pianist as well as a wonderful singer - Fiona Apple.

Also, Alanis Morissette.

That whole Lo-Fi/downtempo jazz movement has some amazing singers....though it was through Zero 7 that I got hooked on that genre....highly recommend the new Yeah Ghost album....
