What are some of the best female singers?
I realize I'm completely lacking in bands or knowledge of good or even well known female singers. Ridiculous right?
So who are some of the best, who should I listen to? I'm starting with Joplin and Winehouse now, but who next?
Modern, classic, alive, dead, any genre.
Wildly subjective but to list a few, Julia Holter, Jessica Pratt, Sybille Baier (spellcheck on that name), and Natalie Prass are all favorites of mine to chill to. All of these women are posted often enough on here but if anyone would like to add a few names to look up, I'd appreciate it as well.
carol king, dolly parton, heart, jefferson aeroplane/ship, momma and the poppas, ella fitzgerald, bessie smith, billy holiday, carmen mcrae, diana ross, dinah washington, nina simone, peggy lee, sarah vaughan, the ronettes, the shirelles.
Thats what I've got for women singers on my pc.
Sister Wynona Carr
Kate Nash's last album was actually pretty good too
My Brightest Diamond
These are just a few of my favorites
I've been loving Janis at the moment, this performance is insane
A few of my favorite lady singers are Björk, Joni Mitchell, Joanna Newsom, Beth Gibbons, Nico, Stevie Nicks, Ann Wilson, Kim Deal, Erykah Badu, Norah Jones, Billie Holiday, and Grace Slick
