Thumbs up Favorite female singer

I like Ann Wilson for rock...but there is this E. Texas girl right here that really moves me with her voice.

Ruthie is gifted like somebody else we all know.

Honey, don't fall out of your seat, but I am going to publically agree with you LOL

Ms. Ruthie is one amazing soulful singer...I love her rich voice and bright spirit....effortless power in her voice

As far as women singers go, I also like Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, and Allison Krause.

Wow!!!

Thanks for posting these, Roger. I hadn't heard her before, she's fantastic. Effortless power like Susan said and a beautiful tone of voice. There's also something quite charming and soulful in her being.

I have to say I have a soft spot for Skin, the (now ex) lead singer of Skunk Anansie.

Scary looking lady but has an amazing voice.

just realised that in fact she has a Grammy nomination for her new cd release "Into the Blues" in the category of Best Contemporary Blues for 2008!

she was No1 on the Billboard Blues Chart and toured the USA last year. maybe you do know her after all Roger!

here she is rocking in 1980. one of my favourites

I would have to go for Heather Findlay who sings with the British Prog rockers Mostly Autumn. A great band who receive little or no coverage in the music media despite a string of great albums and stunning live performances.
Get to see them this spring when they are on tour around the UK.

Also another women worth listening to is Candi Payne, her debut album came out last year and is an interesting mix of retro Dusty Springfield and modernelectro pop such as Portishead

Canadian singer Jann Arden is one of my faves, as is British singer Sam Brown, who has toured and/or recorded with Jon Lord, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Fish and has solo projects out as well.

Cheers...Todd

I'm listening to a CD by a female singer right now, and guess what her name is....

CHIP
... no kidding!

Here's proof:



Oh, and she's good!
Check out the CD here.
Now I gotta search for the thread with names vs. song titles from a couple years ago...

Cheers,
Christian

I would have to agree with you Iain - Heather has the most wonderful voice - they are one of my favourite bands to see live. She also sings with her bandmate Angela in a solo project called Odin Dragonfly - check them out if you can - amazing!!

Many great singers here, but I must add Annie Haslam of Renaissance She is the voice by which I rate all others.
I greatly enjoy Patti Smith, though here voice is a mere shell of what it was in the seventies, and could listen to Roberta Flack all day long. Add to my list Freda Payne and Stevie Nicks also.

Im another Heather Findlay fan!

Heather has a great voice and she is GORGEOUS!

Agreed, Todd.
Sam Brown has always been mindblowing, even more as her mother "Vicky Brown" has been. Both can be heard on the album "Before I Forget" by Jon Lord of 1982.

I like Jann Arden too, Todd, she was also the one who did the ORIGINAL intro music to "Dawson´s Creek" called "Run Like A Mad" before they changed it from 2nd season on and overdubbed the old episodes on DVD with the new one as well, just for a little background info.

My current fave singer is doubtlessly Susan Tedeshi, who is mindblowing, saw her on stage with Derek Trucks, blew me away.

It's good to see that there are so many people on this site with excellent taste. It is about time that groups like Mostly Autumn get some recognition.

Besides the gorgeous Heather Findlay, there is also Bryan Josh who is a brilliant guitarist who has many similarities with Dave Gilmour and Ritchie Blackmore and a pretty decent singer.

Mostly Autumn have a new album out this spring and will be touring around the UK so get out and see them if they are in your area. So it is going to be a great year for real music with Glen getting the F.u.n.k out and touring the UK.

.........since our boy can sing ANYTHING ~

I can't believe that nobody's yet mentioned:

Patti LaBelle and Anita Baker.........


And if it wouldn't cause too much fireworks around here,
I would LOVE to hear a GH / Anita Baker collaboration,
(yeah, along the "The Alchemist" lines) of smoooooooth jazz.


Actually, fireworks (of the vocal variety) wouldn't be too bad

What can I say, Susan?

We GHCPs got couth.
It comes from only listening to the best


Seriously......practically from day one, a few years ago,
when I first discovered the "computerized" GH web sites,
I've been constantly amazed at how many posts from
other people, voice EXACTLY my own opinion.
And I'm definely not a "Me, too" kind of person.


Yep, Anita and Glenn would blow the roof off.
Smooooothly, of course.

Seeing as there were a few Roberta Flack 'votes' here, just informing anyone interested that she is playing Valentine's Day (Night) for two shows at BB King's in NYC

Thought there may be some interest for some of you

I'm with the late Dio's comments about female singers, but I do like a few and I'm known to sing some of their stuff:


Ann Wilson

Pat Benatar


Janis Joplin

Candace Night

Stevie Nicks

Lady Gaga

probably others too, but other than Blackmore, unfortunately I only listen to male artists.

Miss Night has come a long long long way. I heard her hit a high note last year loud and clear, right in front of me above all the other instruments and I wasn't just hearing it coming through the monitors or PA- I could hear her unamplified voice- right out of her lungs to my ears- in tune, powerful and soulful.
