THE best female vocals? (your favorite female singers) - Page 6

post #76 of 2359

The infamous mash-up team known as A plus D did a nice rework of Crazy featuring Nelly that I do like:

I found this a few years ago and listen to it from time to time.

 

Again, great voice... just not used the way I would her to.

I really liked "Folklore"' but didn't really care for Nelly's albums after that.

Elizabeth Fraser FTW!

 

 

Been loving some Tori Amos lately too, but nobody sounds like Elizabeth Fraser. She's a voice and and instrument wrapped up into one

Kelly Clarkson (I don't think she's THE best but she's my favorite)

Jessie Baylin

Brandi Carlile

Jewel

Bonnie Raitt

and Reba (Don't laugh)

This is just off the top of my head though.

K.D. Lang for me.

 

Her album "Hymns of the 49th Parallel" is very very good.

Acts I like:

 

Cristina Scabbia - Lacuna Coil

Sharon Den Adel (any female that signs on with Armin Van Buuren really)

Eva Cassidy

Oceanlab

Veda

La Roux

Rilo Kiley

 

Random, I know!

I haven't seen Kate Rusby mentioned yet. I love her thick English accent...not for everyone I'm sure. Almost as good as Missy Higgins Aussie accent.

I guess this doesn't matter if you're not a Yank. tongue.gif

Lots of my favorites mentioned so far. Some listed that I could never like, but I tried.

My favourite Aussie female singer is probably Sarah Blasko but I do also enjoy Missy Higgins.

No favourite but a few artists worthy of a try:

 

Utada Hikaru - Flavour of Life

Lisa Miskovsky - Still Alive [theme song from Mirror's Edge]

Enya [of course]

Lets start going up the scale a bit.

 

Giorgia Fumanti.

Cecilia.

 

And the beautiful blond Malena Ernman.

Still waiting for my Mi Plan Remixes to arrive.



if she's the one that did the electronic/trance music on youtube, than I like her

:facebrick:

The only song of Furtado that is remotely electronic is Who Wants to be Alone. And that's DJ-Tiesto featuring Furtado.

Gillian Welch is up there for me.

Only one vote for Ella Fitzgerald, a voice like springtime...... Etta James, Diana Krall, Eva Cassidy, Sutton Foster.

I like her quite a bit.  "Whoa, Nelly!" still gets a lot of play in my library beyersmile.png I think that album got overlooked...one of my favs of that year!
