Cecile McLorin Salvant. Probably the most stunning voice I've heard in years. She's only 23. 

 

 

 

Another favorite is Kate Miller Heidke. She is the best voice in pop music and America has no idea who she is. She's a classically trained opera singer that left the opera to make more modern music. Incredible voice. Great song writer. She also plays instruments which is something most pop stars have never heard of. I could post 20 of her songs. Just go check her out.

 

Her song Words. Just wait for it...

 

And a great sense of humor (her first two albums actually have a lot of very clever humor in them)

 

Another hilarious song

I don't like this to be honest. And it's nothing like Kate's music.

Awesome! I just went and picked up a copy of her WomanChild album off the strength of this post, so thanks for that smily_headphones1.gif

 

What a voice!

I did a search of the thread and was very suprised not to find Yukimi Nagano, lead singer of Little Dragon here

 

She has a uniquely fantastic voice that I can't get enough of  biggrin.gif 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and amazingly no mention of one of my other current favourite voices, Claire Boucher aka Grimes. hauntingly beautiful voice

Agree whole-heartedly.  I have all of their studio albums.  It was the song "Twice" that first captivated me.  Just something about her voice ......

And thanks for those videos.  At Bandcamp now listening to her earlier albums - and probably likely to buy all 3 studio albums :)

 

Woah - just listened to first album (Geidi Primes) - terrible recording quality (a lot of distortion .... maybe it's intentional) - hope the other ones are better!

Yeah, as far as I know that is why Geidi primes is only available as a free download.

 

The other ones are awesome :)

No Dolly Parton tracks offered yet in this thread, as far as I can see, using the 'search' function, so here goes:

 

 

I always used to write Dolly off as cheesy old country, but I have come to appreciate that she is a talented songwriter and, on occasion, a surprisingly talented vocalist, too. One of her more famous song writing efforts (which Whitney Houston nauseatingly covered, IMO) is this:

Thanks for this.  Really enjoying her debut album!

 

I know it's been posted before - but had you caught up with Beth Orton?  Her album Sugaring Season is excellent.

I give Carmen Gomes an extra point because of the good sound of her recent recordings,the 2 Sound Liaison albums,
