ROSHAN’S ELEVEN : Women Singers

The bulk of my music collection is by male musicians, male singers, all-male band members, male musicians. While I love the female singers & musicians in my collection, they are a small minority. I used to have this theory that since I usually sing along with the songs that I play on my stereo system, cd player and now laptop in mp3 form, the lyrics are very important to me and I usually just connect better with the male point of view in the lyrics. I’m not so sure about that anymore but I still find a vastly male dominated collection of music. However here are my favourite women singers, my top 11 in no particular order;

  • Sarah McLachlan
  • Jann Arden
  • Isabelle Boulay
  • Tori Amos
  • Chantal Kreviazuk
  • Alison Krauss
  • Sheila Carabine (Dala)
  • Amanda Walther (Dala)
  • Terri Clark
  • Kathleen Edwards
  • Jessie Farrell

Notable mentions would be Alanis Morissette, Sarah Harmer, Dido, Tegan & Sara, Jewel, Katie Melua, Lisa Brokop & Regina Specktor.

  1. What? No Lita Ford, Lee Aaron, Joan Jett? I’d have to think about it for a bit, but I’d def. have Annie Lennox on my list, same with Amy Lee (Evanescence)

  2. I like the singers you mentioned (never heard any songs of Lee Aaron although I am aware of her) but I don’t listen to much of their music.
