let's hear it for the girls
Like KT Tunstall, then take a listen to these ladies. They all write their own songs, sing 'em and play at least one instrument. The links go to their MySpace pages, which seems to be the best place for full tracks (if there's something better, please let me know). I updated the links in this post, too. Oh, and please feel free to suggest some other ladies you like.
Her voice reminds me of Sarah McLaughlin, but with some edge. She's a treasure from Australia. You won't be sorry, I promise.
Neko Case + The New Pornographers
Whether as a solo artist or member of The New Pornographers, Neko Case has one of the most distinctive voices I've ever heard. Kind of like singing beneath an underpass. Very cool.
A little bit like Bonnie Raitt, but with a prettier sound to her voice.
PS I noticed the soundtrack for the Mamma Mia movie is the No. 1 album on iTunes! I'm sorry, I just don't get that at all. It was a nice movie, but Amanda Seyfried was the only one I might want to hear again and Pierce Brosnan can not sing. People, come on! Ok, I'm done, and sorry if you like the album, no offense.
