Your Favorite Band Outside of Genesis

  • ...

    Just out of curiosity what female artists and female-fronted/voiced bands do we like? I ask also as I find I Iike quite a few and am always up for hearing of ones I don't know.

    ...

    The one I am most fanatical about is Sandy Denny.

    I like virtually everything she’s been involved with.

    The Fairport Convention albums featuring both Sandy Denny and Richard Thompson in the lineup are nothing short of iconic IMO.

    I thought Fotheringay and her initial solo releases were great, and even the early Strawbs album she was on was enjoyable.


    Janis Joplin would probably be my second favourite, but there are at least a dozen more artists or female-fronted bands I have albums of and enjoy listening to.

    Those include Etta James, Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone, Jefferson Airplane, Magenta, The Cranberries, Sarah McLachlan and the first couple of albums by the Eurythmics.

    Don't think I have Jefferson Airplane & District 97....X/

  • Female artists?


    Kate Bush

    Joni Mitchell

    Stevie Nicks

    Aretha Franklin

    When I was younger & a huge country rock fan, Linda Ronstadt. I'm sorry to say that's about it. I have a couple of famous albums by women, like Tapestry by Carole King, but I was never interested in getting the whole catalogue. Karen Carpenter was a great singer but a compilation is enough.


    Hubby loves Heart & he used to be a big Pat Benatar fan. I never took to her.

  • Lots of great female bands out there, my faves are:


    Gacharic Spin

    Doll$boxx

    Show Ya

    Rie aka Suzuku

    Band Maid

    Aldious

    Scandal

    Mary's Blood

  • GOASTT (Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger) with Charlotte Kemp Muhl and Sean Lennon. Highly recommended. I guarantee you will love their music. Charlotte is amazing and Sean has lots of his Dad in his voice.

  • We appear to have very male-centric tastes don't we.


    Just out of curiosity what female artists and female-fronted/voiced bands do we like?

    Very few! I’ve liked a handful of female-fronted bands – the Pretenders, Blondie, some of Siouxsie, & now Starcrawler - or bands with female members e.g. New Order whose keyboard player is female, & Abba. But the only female solo artists are Kate Bush & early Lily Allen.


    Some of the most highly rated female artists leave me cold. I must be the only person who doesn’t like Janis Joplin, or Carole King’s Tapestry - but I’d rather listen to either of them on loop than have to endure Adele or Ellie Goulding! ^^

  • My faves have already been named:


    Nina Simone

    Joni Mitchell

    Sandy Denny / Fairport

    Kate Bush


    Jacqui McShee (Pentangle), although it helped she alternated with the male singers.

    I also quite like the sunny voice of Shakira, but not her music.


    Wait, I nearly forgot Nina Hagen, who did two good albums at the very beginning of her career. Ideal with Annette Humpe did one good album as well.
