I believe he is referring to the lead singer of Evanescence. And she does have a great voice.

Frou Frou's Imogene Heap is a great melodic singer. If you seen Garden State you should of heard her in the song "Let Go." :)

Deborah Harry singing Denis Denis still gives me a very warm feeling.

Oh.. There's so many.. Hmm.. Björk is definitely among them, though. Amy Lee definitely isn't. :wink:

Alice in Videoland, Lacuna Coil, Nightwish, Portishead, Janis Joplin, Loreena McKennitt, Kajiura Yuki.. are some, or their bands respectively.. I think Kylie Minouge fits in there also... sometimes.. and there are more... :wink:

edit: Tori Amos fits in the list... definitely.. :wink:
edit: I think Gwen Stefani makes it to the list also.. cool voice..

Emmylou Harris!! Hands down. Amy Lee is OK but I get tired of her after a while. Harris stays good though.

Shania Twain, beacuse.........um............just because I like her music..............yeah that's it. Oh yeah......she's Canadian too. :D :roll:




Actually I do like her music as long as it's not too "country" sounding.

I like Tori Amos' voice, but her music blows. So I guess I'll go with Gwen Stefani. Although back in her day, Grace Slick had a great voice too.

In no particular order. I like their voice. Vocal skills don't matter to me.

In no particular order...

- Tori Amos (idchafee, her music doesn't "blow" it is just "qurky"... and I like quirky :wink:)
- Sarah McLachlan
- Pat Benatar (mainly her later post-MTV stuff, after she stopped being so overtly commercial and just made good music... her husband -- who IIRC plays on nearly all of her albums -- is also an excellent guitarist!)
- Ann Wilson (Heart)
- Fiona Apple
- Happy Rhodes (obscure singer-songwriter from upstate NY, stunning 4-octave range, material ranges from folksy/acoustic to electronic/new-agey)
- Suze De Marchi (Baby Animals... they only released two albums, and only the first one was good... but man what an album, and what a voice!)
(this space intentionally left blank)
just brew it!
