    So does that mean Jayne County is out too then?

    But you're special I worked on a couple Amy Denio projects (2nd hand, I never met her but I've worked with the Shaking Ray Levis...)

    That is why I listed them...everyone knows Bjork, Kate Bush or Annie Haslam...but that is also why there is no value discussing them any more...

    Not progressive, but Christine Perfect recorded some forgotten classics with Chicken Shack. I also love Sandy Denny's voice on Tam Lin, from Liege and Lief, by Fairport Convention.

    Yes, I suppose, in that I don't like that much of what others seem to like in here. Not special in a positive tense, though. I'm just some freaky geek with a weirdo hairdo.

    I've got an extra nipple too, and that scrotum is in fact an adopted titty sans latte.

    Wow!!! Three pages into this thread and no one has mentioned Sonja Kristina of Curved Air!
    How disappointing...



    Edit: Sorry, I have just noticed one mention - but it was misspelled...

    I don't care too much for female singers, sure a song or two here or there might be nice, but the only female singer that I have bought has ever been Sade...

    I really love this singer from Quidam. They do a nice little "firth of fifth" diversion in the guitar solo as well. As for the non-prog female singers, I like Tara VanFlower with Lycia, Autumn's Grey Solace, Love Spirals Downwards, Lydia Pense (Cold Blood) .

    Here's Quidam from the Baja Prog

    I really enjoy Aleena Gibson from Kaipa. She sounds very unique...I can't really describe it, but she grabs my attention immediately.

    Also, another big thumbs up for Christina from Magenta

    If you're thinking of the one who sang on their debut (waaaay back in the 90s!), I personally think she's the greatest female "neo-prog" vocalist of all time. But then again I don't usually enjoy "neo" at all.

    Alas, the only Atlantis I can find nowadays is a completely different group, which has absolutely nothing in common with the Atlantis Inga Rumpf sang. I still regret not having bought those Frumpy and Atlantis CD's, when I saw them some years ago. Alas I'm stuck with one Frumpy CD and one Frumpy reunion CD.

    If we are going to add non-prog vocalists, I could add:
    Judith Holofernes (Wir Sind Helden)
    Tamara Danz and Anna Loos (Silly)
    Beth Hart

    Inga Rumpf's singing on the second Frumpy-album (awesome record!) is on my top-5 female rock vocalist performances - ever. No one even sounded anything remotely like her; that organic concoction of Dusty Springfield, Nina Simone and Janis Joplin - Inga would have been a superstar if she were Angloamerican.

    I read a review(Prog Archives, I think) that compared her to Alana Myles.

    Sure doesn't sound like it when she sings.

    And my favorite singer alive: Maddy Prior (even now that her voice has deepened quite a bit).

    Also, Mary Timony of Helium (now Wild Flag) and Eleanor Friedberger of the Fiery Furnaces.

    And the wonderful Kristin Hersh-- not really prog, but in a category of her own.

    That's interesting - I think I'm the opposite. Most of my recent purchases have had female vocals, especially of the folky variety. Recent faves include The Staves, First Aid Kit, Hafdis Huld, Bat For Lashes, Beth Gibbons, Claudia Brucken, Espers, Feist, Laura Marling, The Unthanks, Mum

    I am surprised nobody has mentioned Karen Carpenter, Astrud Gilberto or Norah Jones.

    I am guessing you meant her cover of Right Down The Line.
