I've always had a soft spot for really good female vocalists. So balls to all this guitar stuff, what's your favourite female vocalists. A few of my favourites include Whitney Houston and Tonni Braxton. Some of their stuff just gives me goosebumps. Incredible voices.

Joan Osborne
I met Joan a few times in Philly, she and her band were always very cool to me.

Johnette Napolitano
I don't like her solo stuff, but she was great in concrete blond(e). However, I can't help think one of my two favorites they did was really covering a Leonard Cohen song.

Pink
If you hadn't been brave enough to mention Whitney and Tonni, I'd have been real shy about admitting my respect for P!nk. Another Philly girl (suburbs tho) and while I don't always get into the styles of music she has explored, this lady can really belt it out like a pro.

I also agree with Joan Osborne, she has beautiful music!
Also, Chan Marshall (Cat Power). Everyone should check her out her music, if you haven't already. smile.gif
And also again, Kotoko! Again, everyone should check it out smile.gif

There are some great ones that I like. If you're talking about the modern commercial pop singers you have already mentioned a couple of great names. I also like Christina Aguilera. Her song "I Turn to You" to me sounds like the best modern female vocal performance. Some true rock guy with 1 meter long hair was probably sitting behind the mixing desk and made something incredible smile.gif

Janis Joplin,


Stevie Nicks,


I was at a Festival and was walking through an Indoor Stage to get to somewhere else and heard this woman singing backed by just a guy with an Acoustic Guitar. The hairs on my neck stood on end!
I'd never heard of her at that point but the following year her first Record got to No 1!


The Godmother of Soul:-


I also urge you to check out Sam Brown.
Apart from her solo stuff she's also a permanent part of the backing singers for Pink Floyd when they play live and she also sings with Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra as well as being a well know Session Singer.


I could go on, but I'd better let someone else get a word in!!!

If you like Whitney Houston, check out Aretha, she was her idol. Just sit back and listen to that voice man, she makes it looks so easy!

Tarja from Nightwish has an amazing voice, also Angela Gossow from Arch Enemy (not the typical female singer but still awesome)

i dont remember what movie, i saw that in some documentary that they interview some girl band and they say that boys can be as ugly as they want while females in the metal world as to be hot to succeed. mainy because 90% of fans are male.take people you mentioned like:

Lacey Mosely
Nookie
Luciana Segovia
Tarja

im not saying they have to be super models but look at what happaned when nightwish changed singer, people pretty much dislike the new one, and in mho shes just as good a singer and reading that latter even thogh one sided you can see tarja was a less the pleasent women

Actually I hated nightwish until the new singer - I find the new girls voice MUCH better.

honestly, I just prefer the sound of the female voice in conjunction with the guitars etc.

That said... I can get what you're saying though..
