I just love listening to people who can sing.

Recommended Posts

A thread that celebrates the talent of people who can actually sing. I don't need to like the style they sing in or the topic they're singing about. I just want to enjoy listening to people who can sing without the need for studio tricks. Using studio technology to enhance a good voice is not the same as making a silk purse from a sow's ear.

If you don't like the singers being posted, then instead of b*tching about it why not post your own idea of a good singer?

To get us started, here's someone whose singing I've always enjoyed (even though her music often seems to provoke widely varying reactions):

 

Over to you...

Lady Ga-Ga, without posting any of her music (as I’m not particularly keen on it) she is one hell of a singer.

Not just the voices, but the poetry and emotions conveyed.

IMO, the finest female voice ever to have graced the planet. Absolutely peerless and such a sad demise.

And my favourite male voice.

Whilst he's got a great voice, I hate listening to Van Morrison talk. Sadly, hearing his views on things has made his voice less attractive of late :(

Another one from me. Two for one actually.

Both outstanding singers in their own right, and Krauss in particular is IMHO one of the best harmony singers in the business. The music won't be to many peoples' taste, but that's not what this thread is about:

TBH, I never could stand his voice, so it made no difference to me!😂

I know someone who worked with him...said he was a “repugnant little sh*t”. So that will do me - said person is the most chilled “get on with everyone” kind of guy too.

Interestingly said similar of John whatsisface of ‘Yes’.

Said ZZ Top were ace though. Particularly Dusty.

We’ve already had Sandy and Karen, so here’s another of my faves:

I think everything I’ve ever heard about VM supports that. 

I’ve met Jon Anderson a couple of times though -although have certainly never worked with him! - and he seemed ok to me.

      Apparently when I was a boy I had a lovely singing voice, but adolescence combined with a love of shouty rock and punk music plus the fact that really don't like how my voice sounds when recorded (much like the Red Dalek) means I haven't really done much singing for the last 40 years.
      However I think I'm missing out a lot in my musical development by not being at least a competent singer, so I've decided to look at getting some lessons in order to improve the, pitching, range and tone of my singing. Is there anyone in Nottingham that Basschat members would recommend? I am really looking for a personal recommendation rather than a list of Google results.
      I'm not looking at becoming a fantastic lead vocalist, but some help in being able to provide a competent vocal performance that I would not be embarrassed about is what I am after.
      Thanks in advance!
