I've been on this kick lately where I've been listening to bands/artists with really nice woman vocalists. So far I'm stuck on Evanescence (Amy Lee has an incredible voice), Beth Orton, Maia Sharp and Alana Davis. Any suggestions for others I should check out?
There are many women I like that have been very successful in music, others not as much, but I still like them all: Shakira, Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Anastasia, Carly Simon, Gloria Estefan, Mesissa Etheridge. All of them have their own style and personality. I like them all! But there is a singer, she is from Spain, that has an incredible voice! She is definetly my favorite female singer: Ana Belen. To me, her voice is like velvet! Amazing.
For some reason I really dislike women fronted bands, but a few have made an OK in my book. My favorites are Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Joan Jett, Siouxsie Sue, Debbie Harry of Blondie, and I didn't really mind when my friend played some Patti Smith and I'm thinking about buying the best of Brenda Lee (she sang Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree)...I guess I prefer the retro women singers.
