Top 11 Voices - A Nice Unround Number

Billie Holiday, just one of those voices that hit you right in your soul. Voice in music has been very important to me over the years. I'm quite picky - too whiny, too jangly, too something. But then there are those voices that knock me out of my comfortable lounging position. This, then, is a list of those voices or groups of voices that struck me as most stunnning, unique and wonderful:

Kelly Jones
Peter Gabriel
Jefferson Airplane
The Beatles
Janis Joplin
Nina Simone
Jeff Buckley
Kurt Cobain
Richard Ashcroft
Kate Bush
Otis Redding

I know this is an odd group, musical styles ranging from prog rock to the blues, but it does relate to the types of music I listen to the most. This blog is as much about self-discovery as it is communicating to you all about me and my art, so it was interesting to look through my CD collection to compile this list. My wife has always told me I listen to some weird music! I'll get into the extent of that weirdness in later posts, but suffice it to say I've got Nina Simone's raw blues next to Tangerine Dream's ethereal electronica.

Who are your favorite singers? Please leave me feedback about what you think of my choices and, of course, to see other singers I've painted:


Don't be a stranger!
