    I know some people will disagree but get yourself some PINK,, she really does have a great voice, IMO,, it's not all loud pop,

    Gaius Trade: Stiletto by Tangerine

    She does have a good voice and some WILL disagree! Same for Christina Aguilera, her Stripped album is a lot more than just bubble gum pop.

    I trust the likes of Teddy Ray has the OP covered on Emmylou. :cool:

    The OP should also seek out some Nanci Griffith, I love her.

    johnfromnorwich even my wife noticed the dif..

    No love for Nina Nastasia on this thread? 'Dogs' is definitive. 'The Blackened Air' may even be better. Both expertly tracked to analogue tape by Mr Steve Albini.

    One would assume that because Emmylou has been recording since the 60s, and is a major-label artist, she doesn't meet his requirements for good music.

    I'll add Kim Richey to my list of recommendations. A beautiful, pure voice, and I haven't found a bad album in her output yet.

    Forgot about Meg Baird from Espers, her solo stuff may appeal to those into Karine Polwart and Sandy Denny.

    We would find it really odd if someone asked for recommendations for male vocals, wouldn't we?

    More specifically, 'nice' male vocals. Nick Drake's voice is quite nice.

    Not me. Now if you asked for Chicken vocals........
