THE best female vocals? (your favorite female singers) - Page 94

post #1396 of 2416

Since I've just posted a couple of Massive Attack songs, above, it's only fair to tip my hat to Tracey Thorn (Everything But The Girl):

Rokhsan

Róisín Murphy (of Moloko)

Kiesza

Also check out Rumer:

 

 

Re' Beth Gibbons, I don't have a specific suggestion for anyone similar, but, on the Portishead side of things, I highly recommend you take a listen to John Martyn's cover of 'Glorybox' - it's absolutely superb:

 

 

       I used listen to Portishead, Morcheeba, and Massive Attack a lot, during my university days... memories... If you haven't heard Morcheeba or Massive Attack, you might find enough of their sound in common with Portishead's 'trip-hoppy' sound:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hoover:

 

 

 

Axiom Funk (feat. Bootsy Collins):

 

 

 

Nightmares on Wax:

 

 

 

 

Re' Sarah Jaffe, you might try Julia Stone:

 

 

 

Laura Marling:

 

 

 

Amy Mann:

 

 

 

 

 

Patti Rothberg:

 

 

 

and, although they are male artists, you might like Ray LaMontagne:

 

 

 

 

 

Damien Rice:

 

 

 

 

Paulo Nutini:

 

 

 

 

Ryan Adams:

 

 

 

 

David Gray:

 

 

 

And, of course, there's Lana Del Ray, though she seems to attract strongly polarised love/hate opinions from the listening public, so she may not be your cup of tea:

 

 

 

Or Paloma Faith:

 

 

 

If I think of any others, I'll let you know. To be honest, I didn't find it particularly easy coming up with suggestions for the 3 artists you mentioned, because all three of them have quite a unique sound.

 

An incredible eclectic mix of great music...Thank You!

BTW, as good as Lana del Rey is...Natalie Lungley's cover is better, IMO.

Thanks, I wasn't aware of her. It's freaky  how much she sounds like Lana del Ray, isn't it..?!

Emmylou Harris has been mentioned once  or twice in this thread, but not much in the way of videos.

Yeah, Skye Edwards does have a decent voice with a pleasantly unique style. Glad you enjoyed reminiscing with that track as much as me!

 

Here's another great Morcheeba cut from Jools Holland's 'Later', back in 1996...

A BIG THANKS. Her voice and delivery is so soft and smooth, she could work the Suicide Prevention Hotline! (Note: to anyone who may have lost someone they loved in this manner, my comment is meant in a truly positive way.)

Glad you like her!

 

For my part, I've enjoyed many of the recommendations in this thread, from other Head-fiers. In fact, truth be told, although it's not about equipment, I think this might just be the best thread on the whole of Head-fi! :-)

 

 

Please note that Morcheeba have had several guest singers over the years, so do be aware of this if you're looking to buy any of their albums in order to hear Skye sing.

 

I'm not a geek-fan of Morcheeba so I don't know which of their albums do not feature Skye. I just have a couple of their albums, from back in the day, which do feature her ('Who Can You Trust' and 'Big Calm').

 

More info on the band here:

All the best!

 

 

 

Oh, and if you like her in particularly 'soft & smooth' mode:
