THE best female vocals? (your favorite female singers) - Page 46

post #676 of 2272

June Tabor is a wild card, but I think her version of Waltzing Matilda is superlative:

I'm a fan of Sarah McLachlan and Susan Tedeschi, too (see some nice 'live' links of Susan on the page previous to this one). I have virtually all of McLachlan's albums and they're great (particularly 'Fumbling Towards Ecstasy') - only thing is, I think she's run out of ideas in recent years. Perhaps she needs to do some collaborations with other artists, to broaden her musical horizons a little.

 

I've not heard of Sara Gazarek before,and I like her, thankyou.

I just saw Susan live from just a few rows back a few weeks ago.  It was an amazing show and makes me disappointed that you just can't replicate that kind of experience at home.

 

Yeah, I think Sarah has been coasting for awhile.  The fortunate thing about her being that high up is that she could put out an album of lo-fi nursery rhymes and I'd still probably enjoy it.  smily_headphones1.gif  I do think that "Don't Give Up On Us" is her best song of any era though, although the rest of the album isn't as good as some of her older material.

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

Anyone who loves female vocals should hear Mary Black (and Karen Carpenter and Eva Cassidy) at least once in their life!
