Favourite Female Singers!


MB1

Recommended Posts

Some great choices/suggestions, quite a few I’d not heard of so plenty to check out!

Here’s something that would definitely fall under the ‘overlooked and under the radar’ banner. Sadly they were only around for a short while in the early 90s, but I was fortunate to see them a number of times at the now defunct acoustic room in the Mean Fiddler in Harlesden.

Never heard two voices sound so unique together. Wonderfully ‘odd’ vocal harmonies and both members were excellent acoustic players, along with some very strange tunings!

Pooka and a track called Dream from their self-titled debut album.

Well Joni, Joan and Tracy got sorted in the first few posts... also Janice!

Laura Nyro someone mentioned, perhaps obscure but yes, wonderful singer.

Lots of great folk singers Sandy Denny, unassailable. Also Maddy Prior, Jaqui Mcshee.

Donna Summer.

Shirley Bassey.

Floor Janssen (is that right?) is impressive too.

Sonja Kristina.

Lana Del Ray can be good even if she overdoes the breathy bit.

Loved that. Thanks for posting. 
 

EDIT: have just been checking out more Pooka and Natasha Lea Jones. Fantastic!

Glad you liked it!

Their debut album is one of my favourite albums, and it’s a real shame they didn’t get the recognition they deserved.

Here’s a different side to them, guesting on an Ultramarine track from 1995...

Ann Wilson of Heart 

 

My oldest boy is in the process of transcribing some 'Heart' Tunes for a project. He said to me "Blimey. dad - She's a terrific Rock singer..!!".

I can't argue with him, yes she is...:D
