Well you've come to the right place, I am Angsty-Female-Singer-Songwriter Man.
Joni Mitchell, Sarah McLachlan, Shawn Colvin, Paula Cole, Indigo Girls, Fiona Apple, others I forgert - I shall have a dig.
I take it you already own Famous Blue Raincoat by Jennifer Warnes, since it's kind of obligatory?

Nope...........will be ordered sharpish.....also on list is eve cassidy.....
Yes, Eva has a beautiful voice, but could have done with some more interesting material if you ask me. FBR is required listening, both from a performance and recording point of view though. Bizarrely, I was put onto it by hearing her perform 'First We Take Manhattan' on...............Wogan.
Let me know if you want pointers to first album to get from any of the other artists.
cool, and many thanks i some stuff to try out there, i will also order some stuff by 'The Sundays' as i remember going to see them when i was a stoodent...quite some time ago......
Again, lovely voice - Reading, Writing and Arithmetic is the starting point there I think.
My mum's favourate female vocal album but she also a big fan of Metallica
TW Raven AC - Soundsmith SG-410 - MSB 202 - Gershman Acoustics Black Swan - Audioquest K9
Try the Cowboy Junkies, and Sophie B Hawkins is a must.
Nerina Pallot, Kate Bush (how I for got her first time I don't know. d'oh), Natalie Merchant (solo or 10,000 Maniacs), The Carpenters (swoon), Judie Tzuke, Aimee Mann, Alison Krauss........
Always liked a bit of Vanessa Carlton every now and then...
cheers guys keep em coming!...............i have plenty of ella, Kate bush and carpenters (close to you was the first dance at my wedding.......ohhh another thread to start now have on order some of the suggestions, but will also add some sophie b hawkins and some alison krauss...............cheers!..................oh yes i do also have a load of metallica, maiden (seen both in concert ages ago) etc................................
There are a few gorgeous tracks on Adele's debut album. I played an old Sade album the other day too - stunning!! And let's not forget my Dad's favourite, Carole King.
