Loreena McKennitt has been mentioned by many, but not much in the way of videos yet, so:

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

Same goes for Joni Mitchell (although please note that her extensive back catalogue means that just 3 or 4 vids can't do her justice):

Incidentally, Joni's 'A Case of You' has been covered by many artists, 2 notable examples being Diana Krall and Jane Monheit:

Joni fans will no doubt be familiar with Judy Collins

Haha, I never really watch the music videos, it just for people to hear the audio.

Fiona Mackenzie sings in Gaelic, but if you like Loreena McKennitt, she may fit the bill. She's on the Linn Records label:

Gorgeous Irish ladies, beautiful voice. I'm so sad they're disbanded after only one album : (

Violet Skies

 

i briefly looked through her facebook, and youtube account and  cant find much other than that she seems to be new, and if I am correct the singer is the main artist.

anyway, great track!

If anyone here likes the jazzy/trip-hoppy feel of Nightmares on Wax, Thievery Corporation, Massive Attack, Portishead, Morcheeba, etc. (e.g.: http://www.head-fi.org/t/522812/the-best-female-vocals-your-favorite-female-singers/1380#post_9079664), Joy Malcolm might appeal. Here she is singing as part of the group 'Waldeck':

 

 

 

 

...and for another jazzy / slightly trip-hoppy option (though perhaps somewhat more morose), you could try Belleruche, whose vocalist is Kathrin de Boer:

There are a lot of, frankly naff, reinterpretations/covers of well-known songs, in audiophile circles, which are beautifully recorded but utterly bland in other respects.

 

However, I quite like this very sparse, understated, interpretation of Bernie Taupin / Elton John's 'Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word', by Lydia Gray:

I mentioned Suzy Bogguss many months ago, but she did do a nice cover of the same song, with the late Chet Atkins, worthy of contrasting with the above interpretation:

I also mentioned Claire Teal a few months ago who generally does conventional jazz, but also did a nice cover of Snow Patrol's 'Chasing Cars':

And if anyone happens to like the sparse approach of Lydia Gray's above cover, you might perhaps like Mary Black's 'Poison Words':

...which was also covered (less successfully, IMO) by Mary Coughlan, though I am a big fan of Coughlan, generally.
