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.

and, having revisited that page of the thread, I also noticed this 'live' version of the same song ('Pressure') on Youtube:

 

 

along with an interesting take on a certain Michael Jackson track:

 

 

 

Thankyou, 'kingtz', for bringing her to my attention.

Ruby Amanfu is generally very understated in her vocal performances, so would tend to be overlooked in a world of vocal show-boaters, but she has quite a pleasant voice:

Re' Sam & Ruby's track, 'Ain't Love Something' (above), I noticed this amateur cover on Youtube, and even though her vocal performance isn't technically out of the ordinary, there is something about this lass's voice that I find captivating. I can't quite put my finger on it. but maybe it's the intimacy of her delivery. Her name is Vanna Jean Macayan:

 

 

 

 

...and here's another alternative amateur cover of the same song, by Eve Murtagh:

For chiptunes they kick arse. Pity that chiptunes are basically the opposite end of the musical composition spectrum from female vocals.

Rachael Price from Lake Street Dive:

 



Just got their new double LP of Lake Street Drive/Fun Machine and I have to say it's worth the $20, just for the first side of Fun Machine.
