One of my favourite singer-songwriters celebrated a birthday today – Kate Bush.
I know that many of you are fans of Kate’s work, so trust that you’ve played, or will be playing, some songs in honour of her today. Let me know which.
Another name that springs to mind when mulling over favoured female voices is that of Sam Brown, whose vocal talents are demonstrated particularly well here.
So many others… You probably already know that David is a great admirer of Joni Mitchell’s work. Suzanne Vega is also a popular choice in the Gilmour household.
I probably wouldn’t be able to sleep tonight if I failed to mention as part of my list of favourites the remarkable Annie Lennox, who, as well as possessing such exquisite elegance in her voice (just search for her version of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’), has dedicated so much of her time in support of many a noble cause.
So, your favourite songstresses and their stand-out performances, please; on stage, in the studio or wherever else they may have inspired you.
