If I temporarily ignore some stunning Opera voices, in addition to the Ellas and Billies, Kralls  etc I would add Hayley Reinhart, Morgan James and, I am still working through her songbook, Sarah Lloyde especially when singing with The Hindley Street Country Club.

Some great ones in here. By no means in the “best ever” category, but I don’t think she’s had a mention yet - I just love Susanne Sundfor.

Larissa Stupar from Venom Prison

Awesome stage presence and vocals hit the spot perfectly for their music.

I'm amazed that there's no love for 3 of the most distinctive female voices!

And of course Bjork, with honourable mention to Skin!

TOTP always felt slightly embarrassed to have any band that performed with that sort of gusto.

Looks/sex appeal wise there are quite a few but I guess this thread isn't about that. Don't really have a fave but there are a few I don't know much about but whose voices sound great on certain songs e.g.

i have a load of fave female singers, but one for me which just exudes pure talent is liane Carroll and all that while playing stunning piano with such feeling and emotion, both just flow out of her and to top it all her husband Roger Carey on bass who has the ability to make most bass players just want to pack in, in one word i would say "beautiful"  playing.

take time to check him and Liane out, and  If you get the chance catch her live throughout the uk then go... its an experience

Swedish Karin Dreijer Andersson, electronic musician and singer from The Knife and her solo project Fever Ray, is also up there for me :

 

Here as guest vocalist for Norwegian Röyksopp (She doesn't have the lead role in this music video, that's some super model, but is featured as the woman sitting at a dinner table in priest robes eating an apple, later in the video) :

Seems to inhabit a similar musical universe of pain to Diamanda Galas, much of whose music was I think inspired by the AIDS disaster of the 80's and who is also something of an acquired taste; here's one of her more accessible tracks:

I enjoyed that, and yes definetly sounds like it was an influence on Lingua Ignota.

In Hayter's case, her work is a cathartic expression of her experience as an abuse survivor

Got to add June Tabor to that list.

Listened to Ashore yesterday, amongst others. Very powerful.

I've loved Alison Krauss for a long time now. Her work with Union Station was just amazing, but along with her bluegrass / country stuff I think her cover of this old Brenda Lee standard is wonderful.

Bit screechy but that girl on the early Rush albums. Hang on, what do you mean? 😄
