THE best female vocals? (your favorite female singers) - Page 2

post #16 of 2359

Currently, Anneke van Giersbergen, from her collaboration with Devin Townsend on (Devin Townsend Project's) Addicted (awesome album, btw). I now also want to hear her other bands, The Gathering and Agua De Annique.

For me, Eva Cassidy is hands down the best female vocalist.

I like Kate Bushs' voice, but just can't get into her musically.

I've been digging Joan Baez lately. Unfortunately I didn't really have much exposure to female vocalists growing up, so I don't know of anyone who even compares.

 

Anyone have any suggestions for a nice folk-y sound?

Brandi Carlile is one of my favorites - she has a soulful voice and her songs are pretty deep. I love Rilo Kiley (Jenny Lewis) for their eclectic style, and currently really into Missy Higgins.

I wouldn't say she has the absolute best female voice, but Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is by far my favorite female vocalist.

I'm aware of Susan Coffey (women with bright red hair <3), but they don't really resemble each other.
