Re: OK THEN FAIR PLAY, BEST FEMALE PERFORMERS
OK, stand back boys.
Bonnie Raitt ( as a few have said) Carolyn Wonderland, Kelly Richey, Ruthie Foster, Eva Cassidy (again, 'nough said). A few great Blues/Guitar singer/songwriters.
Stevie Nicks for sure as noted. Then there's Ann and Nancy Wilson from Heart. I think Ann's voice is better than ever and if I could play as well as Nancy then I'd be a happy girl.
Cyndi Lauper has a great rock voice. Diana Krall for jazz. What about Pat Benatar! Wow, can she sing. I mean the list can go on and on......Norah Jones, Amy Winehouse, Duffy, Kate Rusby, Brandi Carlile, Pink has a pretty great blues voice on her too, Chrissy Hynde for sure, Sarah McLaughlin, Sarah Harmer, Sara Slean (all three Canadian ) Fiona Apple, Tori Amos, Alana Davis.......There's a start.
The Wilson sisters I'll give you. Pat Benatar and Norah Jones make me switch channels ASAP.
But, as Dave Barry, put it, "Music is subjective". "Book of bad songs"
Absolutely ozymandias. Music like art is very subjective.
How about Debra Harry. Janis Joplin? Grace (is it Jones or Slick) from Jefferson Airplane!
