- HiFi Trade?
The trouble with this list for me is that these are almost all guitar-based singers. Which means mostly the same rhythms you typically get with guitar based music, especially strumming guitars. I much prefer keyboard based music because it has more tonal possibilities and much more flexibility of rhythms.As a big fan of lush female vocals, I need to check out a lot of this thread, but just to add a few of my own favourites:
Gretchen Peters - On a bus to St. Cloud
Alice Martineau - If I Fall
Tift Merritt - Still Pretending
Thea Gilmore - As I went out one morning
Harriet - Permission to Kiss/Nothing Hurts like You. Hell, anything by Harriet...
Kacey Musgraves - Happy & Sad
Kari Bremnes - A Lover In Berlin
Sinead Lohan - To Ramona
Tarja - I Walk Alone
Check out the 2009 Live in London dvdK.D. Lang, admittedly I've only listened to Ingenue but that is a great album. Seen her in concert once and her incredible voice on record was just as perfect live, amazing!
Glad you enjoyed it The cd liner notes don't give credits track by track, but Bill Shanley is credited on the album for electric and acoustic guitars, dobro, Hammond and harmonica (talented man!) so it'll be him, I reckon. Here's Eleanor performing it live though, I love to hear her broad Irish accent.I liked that. Who was playing the "acoustic lead"?
Margo Timmins and, agreed, she has a stunning voice.What is the girl from the Cowboy Junkies called?
Well, pardon me for liking GWG! It’s almost like I was born to be an audiophile!The trouble with this list for me is that these are almost all guitar-based singers.
Anyone else enjoy a good femal vocal? What're your favorites?
