Are there any good female vocalists?

I do have an issue with female singers, they don't seem to have the power of a mans voice to relay emotion. Yes I accept that Beyonce, Adele, Florence have a fantastic set of lungs but they just don't do it for me.

I did like Delores O'Reagan when she came on the scene and Courtney Love but can't think of anybody since.
same period... mid 90's... power in vocals :eek: ... Courtney Love even wanted to have this song (Not Here) as a single for her band (Hole) but this band from Manchester refused her request and released it themselves on Silvertone - was both John Peel's and Melody Makers single of the week

Gorgeous voice Maja Ivarsson has a nice voice too

Sounds like a Screech Owl in a shed full of wind chimes to me.



I saw both at the City Hall. I’d also give Melissa Etheridge and Amanda Marshall a mention.

Her vocals on Beautiful Goodbye are absolutely stunning. That is how to write and sing a ballad.
