I just love listening to people who can sing.

Alison Moyet, loads of tracks to choose from, this one is stunning.

 

Great song from a fabulous singer, but what a bass line! Or is it just me?

Such a beautiful voice and performance (and a great song too of course).

I would love to know the signal chain of this recording because for me it doesn’t get any better than this.

This chap has some decent pipes on him

feel like we could all use some mid 90s positivity.

My lovely wife. She has perfect pitch and is incapable of singing a bum note. She sings in a choir but refuses to sing solo. She did agree to sing guide vocals in a band I was in when we had problems getting a singer. We asked her to join the band but she was horrified at the thought of standing at the front and singing to an audience. Shame. Wish I had her vocal talents cos I love singing but my voice is passable at best and I need to hit that first note before I have any confidence.

A voice that drills straight into my soul. And of course Eva Cassidy. So much emotion and soul, without the vocal gymnastics that pass for "Feeling" in popular music at this time.

The older I get, the more beautiful I find this. She did another version of it on the Directors Cut album which is lovely too

Always thought Ann Wilson was one of the best, but watch how she slays Robert Plant at the "to be a rock and not to roll" bit

Did a search and did not find this. Heard this by First Aid Kit on the radio the other night. Fabulous harmonies, and a lovely version of a great song.

This guy..... Kip Winger.... such a huge talent! Fantastic bassist, songwriter, professional ballet dancer, classical composer, Broadway musical writer and an amazing rock vocalist. Here he shows just what his soulful voice is capable of.....

Give him a listen and appreciate the talent...

Love this, you really can’t beat consanguineous harmony. I bet they were bricking it when they performed it in front of Paul Simon!

consanguineous! Interesting, but nice use of an unusual word (had to look it up).

Yes, that's one hell of a 'command performance'

I’ll take your use of the word unusual to mean correct in this case... 😉

I did think about editing, swapping unusual and interesting around. In fact, I will, as that will make more sense. And yes, nothing wrong with your choice of words!

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:

 

;)

I have never listened to Alison Krauss. I particularly like the very close and often dissonant harmonies between Gillian Welch & David Rawlings and the dissonance in the latter’s guitar playing.

      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!
