    Yes! Rachel Price from Lake Street Dive...She’s awesome! Saw them at the Fillmore here in San Francisco a couple of months ago. What a great show.

    I forgot about Lady Gaga. She definitely can sing anything.

  6. ^ big yes for Marcy Levy

    I like what Gaga brought to this track:

    Layne Staley would certainly be my favorite rock vocalists of the last 30 years. Emotion for sure.

    Currently, male and female:

    Devin Townsend -
    Dude is ridiculously talented and embarrassingly humble about it.

    Agnes Obel -
    Haunting, powerful, fragile and unique.
    She's amazing.

    Honorable mention to:

    Hannah Reid -
    Love her with London Grammar.

    Taylor Kirk -
    Like a sonic opiate with Timber Timbre.

  11. As far as current go, I like Anthony Hamilton and Charlie Wilson.

    My current favorite female singers are mostly blues singers that are under the radar as far as the general public is concerned.

    I've worked with Diunna Greenleaf in the past. She sings blues well, but when she sings gospel acapella I'm done.

    There is no sound on the computer I'm on so I don't know if this is decent quality or not. Apologies if not.

  20. Probably LJ. Just an amazing soulful voice with nice dynamic variety. Been a die hard Sevendust fan since the first album. Also doesn’t hurt that he’s probably the nicest guy you’ll come across in the music industry today. Amazingly kind and humble.
