Tell Me the Women You Love!

Recommended Posts

Emma Swift. Her recent album of Dylan covers is really good & produced by Pat Sansone to boot! She also lives with Robyn Hitchcock & has been streaming shows of cover versions with him. I heard the 80s one & it's really fun.

Yeah, that was a great idea. Inspired me to do something similar on my own post! ;)


Thanks particularly for your Mazzy Star link! I had not seen that video before, and it may be the best, clearest, up-close video of them out there. I wish there was a whole show like that.

if it hasn't been said yet, Taylor Swift's new record is very good. Mirrorball in particular is fantastic.

Glad you liked it! I think I've had a crush on her since the day I saw her. :blush

Looks like a deluxe version with 3 live tracks has just been released.

I've been inexplicably absent from VC for way too long.  Just checked back in today and thrilled to see this topic. 

 

Here's my list of favorite female rockers/singers/songwriters/musicians. I will limit to currently recording/performing women (sorry Grace and Janis).  My list tilts heavily towards guitar playing women:

 

Susan Tedeschi (more than a little surprised she hasn't shown up on any of the previous posts)

Chrissie

Courtney 

Lucinda

Sharon Van Etten (not yet on a first name basis :) )

Nora Jones

Amanda Shires

The Highwomen (Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, Maren Morris, and Amanda Shires) just won Song of the Year, Group/Duo of the year, and album of the year at the Americana awards.  Worth checking out if you haven't already.

Great idea!

Most of the women previously mentioned as well as:

Courtney Barnett

Snail Mail

Phoebe Bridgers

Julian Baker

Julia Jacklin

 

I discovered Snail Mail by accident last night. One of her songs was playing on satellite radio during my weekly grocery store excursion. It was impressive enough that I listened to Lush last night. Count me as a fan now.

These are such great lists! A lot of the women you'd expect to see mentioned, but also a lot of less familiar or unfamiliar names. Makes me want to sample more. I may combine all these names into one master list for reference. :thumbup

Feel free to add any commentary if you want to explain a certain inclusion!
