Favourite Female Singer/s


Recommended Posts

After Elizabeth Fraser, I'd list Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson of the B-52s, then Pat Benatar, then, going a bit obscure, Leticia Solari of Argentine band Mellonta Tauta. After that there's just a whole mess I like across a lot of different genres. The ones named stick out most to me.


For what it's worth, a little Latin American Dark Wave/Ethereal. When bass kicks in at 0:39 the Cocteau Twins influence becomes very obvious, which is a good thing:



Speaking of Dark Wave, l love this singer also, Thierry Sintoni of Rise and Fall of a Decade:

And speaking of Latin Americans, I love these sisters, making up 2/3 of the School of Seven Bells. Unfortunately only made one album as a pair, after which one sister left:




I guess I'm a sucker for this type of voice, in the vein of Elizabeth Fraser; Angela Conway, who appeared with Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis of Wire on a few projects in the '80s. This is Bruce and Angela teaming up as A.C. Marius (great album):

I wanna make this my ring tone. It's so hopeful and inspiring-- the most perfect rock song ever made.
