Everyone likes various different kinds of music, but there may just be that one voice that you'll always be prone to gravitate toward, that voice that's just so enthralling and enjoyable for you to listen to. Who is that for you?
I personally love Eddie Vedder's voice, singer of Pearl Jam. His singing sounds very unique to me and I love revisiting their songs. (photo from fotos.lainformacion.com)
No explanation, I just love all of her work. Not a song with her in it that I don't love. As you say, she has that 'one voice.'
I can almost never choose just one. My answers:
and Randy Owen of Alabama
Love every song I've heard from both.
I absolutely love the vocal stylings of Rufus Wainwright. He can sing the phonebook, and I would still want to hear every note! His cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" is practically flawless.
I agree..... Rufus did do great covering "Hallelujah", but I also liked Jeff Buckley's version...... as for over all singing voice? The picture above says it all for me.... from Ten, all the way through No Code, on through Yield and onward........ Eddie Vedder has always been one of the best... if not THE best in my opinion.
My favourite singing voice is probably one of the best in the history of Rock:
Freddie Mercury. The front man of Queen. He was practically a lyric singer, performing in a rock band. Really talented...
Ella Fitzgerald - love it all, but my preference is to hear her sing the Cole Porter songbook.
"This Time's the Dream's On Me" is an absolute fave!
Very tough question. But, I love my recording partner, Elizabeth Storm's voice. And so does everyone else apparently. We played on the weekend, everyone praised her voice, not a word about my guitar playing.....oh well.
Tough (but great) question! Otis Redding has an AMAZING voice. I feel every note of every word he sings.
In no particular order, some of my favorite voices* in modern rock and pop music include:
