Celine, Shania, Janis Joplin

Actually, Sade, Linda Ronstadt, Ella, and someone most of you have never heard of - Nancy Wilson. Have 8 or so of her cds, usually very restrained and warm. Her heyday was the 1980's but she still records.

Just noticed I said Nancy Wilson - 1980's. Error - Shoulda been 1960's, so as not to confuse fans of Heart Posted Image

Shirley Manson (Garbage) is my favorite. I also think highly of Patty Loveless and Sarah McLachlan.

In terms of pure vocal tone, I have a major weak spot for Sarah Vaughan. Makes me weak in the knees.:b

k.d. Lang - given the right material (old covers & torch songs) she's pretty hard to beat.

Ella

I first heard her on Mark O'Conners SACD and really thought she had a great voice. So I bought her live DVD concert and although she is pleasant to look at (read pretty hot) she has the goofiest mannerisms and stage presence I have seen in a long time. I can't even get through watching the whole disc.

Oh well, just a mini rant. She does have a good set of pipes and also does a killer rendition of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow".

I'm just glad it's like the first song on the DVD.

In addition to the above, I'd like to add Marilyn McCoo. Her work with the 5th Dimension was great.

Grace Slick - not all grit as the radio hits suggest. Almost a Hindu tinged harmonic minor at times. Silky. I'd rank PJ Harvey pretty damn close.

I like many others (many mentioned):

P J Harvey
Lisa Gerrard
Richa Sharma
Kelli Ali(ex-Sneaker Pimps)
Sade
Sarah Mclachlan (don't care for her songs, but her voice is like opium)
Alison Krauss

and thankfully someone else mentioned:
Skye Edwards

Most beautiful voice I've heard: Jane Kelly Williams. It's a shame that she only ever released one album. She's also a brilliant songwriter and great guitarrist.

Billie Holiday

My favorites are Maria McKee, who also has a goregeous voice, and Sam Phillips, whose voice sounds dramatically better at 96/24 than at the 44/16 of CD.

Dawn Upshaw is pretty amazing also.

A very good friend of mine, Nancie DeRoss. Most people who have heard her live have commented to me that she has the most incredible voice they have ever heard.
I am a little biased but I think so to!
Here is her website if you want to hear her for yourself.

Don't know if this person has been suggested, but I really like Amanda Marshall. She has an incredible voice. She has produced 3 CDs, and the first self titled one, is her best, IMO.

I also agree with Zen regarding Grace Slick. She is one of my all-time favorite singers.
