Definitely Elizabeth Fraser from Cocteau Twins, followed by Anneke van Giersbergen.

Heheh!, Well, you might recall me offering-up the Puppini Sisters, many months ago:

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/522812/the-best-female-vocals-your-favorite-female-singers/660#post_7920961

 

They have a great version of this 1950's track on their debut album, 'Betcha' Bottom Dollar':

 

amazon.co.uk/Betcha-Bottom-Dollar-Puppini-Sisters/dp/B000FDFKEI

 

'Mr Sandman' is absolutely not the kind of music I'd normally listen to, but when a work colleague of mine lent me the Puppini Sister's album, 18 months ago, I was blown away by their harmonies and, on that basis, I really appreciate their work, including the track therein, 'Mr Sandman', so that's why my mind is now open to modern-day interpretations of some of the old 1950's vocal harmony tracks, even though they are, on the face of it, outrageously camp and kitsch! wink_face.gif

 

Just for the record, here's the Puppini sisters performing the track in question, and I make no apologies for posting it, coz their vocals are superb! tongue_smile.gif

(incidentally, if anyone is a fan of jazz guitarists like Martin Taylor, then listen out for Martin Kolarides, in the backing of the above Puppini Sisters track. He's a damn fine player!)

Besides the usual:

K.D Lang

Diana Krall

Adele, Alison Moyet

Eva Cassidy 

 

I've recently stumbled on Birdy.  Very nice.

Yael Naim

 

Thank you again Spotify! 

 

How many people can cover Brittany Spears and make it sound good?

Another vote for Birdy.  She has a very special voice.  I really like her live recordings, particularly Ed Sheeran's "The A Team."  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p856dtR4mms

Her new album is coming out in September.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQ0Na7STDTQ

Well, for me it would have to be Tarja, so sad when she left nightwish, Simone Simons from Epica or Floor Jansen, These metal singers can sing for sure!

New favorite- Skylar Grey released her first album this week- FANTASTIC!

Adele. Her vocal is not only warm but also full of emotion, giving a fuzzy feeling inside.
