How about Tal Wilkenfeild ? She plays bass for Jeff Beck presently. She Walks Hard according to Dewey Cox, unless we're just discussing singers.

I was JUST watching Tal play "Cause We've Ended As Lovers" with Jeff Beck from the 2006 Crossroads Guitar Festival on YouTube this a.m. and.... yeah. Wow. Girl has crazy skills slappin de bass. Her solo in that song actually manages to overshadow Beck and THAT ain't easy to do. He even gives a couple of bows as she's winding it down. That's gotta boggle the mind of a twenty-something bass player (male or female) on stage with Jeff freakin' BECK, no matter how talented they are!

Gin Wigmore- she's from New Zealand-bluesy voice, some great songwriting and a really tight band. Kind of r and b, a little pop, but so damn good and lots of fun. I'd never even heard of her two weeks ago. I hope she makes it big enough down under to come to the US and tour. Several videos of her on youtube. Live version of a song called Don't Stop is amazing.

Perhaps describing her voice as "Bluesy" isn't all that accurate, If she has one, she hides it extremely well. She has a good Pop music voice though.

Whale Tart,

4 mentions of Pat Benatar prior to your post, one a response to a question.

No Pat Benetar though, maybe that's what threw off the search. I always like the search engines that find it even if you just get close enough, or say "did you mean....."

Dee Zee says: "More blues but susan tedeschi is good."

I saw her live, and she is one hell of a guitar player ! Not a bad singer either. I guess it also helps being married to another unbelievable guitarist, Derek Trucks. When they practice at home together, it must make for one tough, low down, bluesy Delta sound.

When she chooses to, Wynonna can sing rock as well as any female artist. Ann Wilson is another outstanding rock singer.
More blues oriented, but Lou Ann Barton and Angela Strehli can both belt 'em out.
I agree with those praising Linda Ronstadt; she had a terrific voice.
Surprised no one has mentioned Tina Turner. That woman could sing rock at any age.
Laura Branigan (anybody remember her from the 80's?) had a powerful voice.
Also liked Dusty Springfield and Wanda Jackson.
And last but not least, Joan Jett.

I've gotta go with Ann and Nancy Wilson. Just cut out that 80's stuff. It doesn't count.

AJA, Speaking of country singers, Tanya Tucker could also rock. In her early years she was called by some, 'the female Elvis'.

I stumbled across the infamous and elusive Renaissance Sight and Sound concert on YouTube yesterday ($75 for a USED DVD the last time I saw it!!) and streamed it in the living room this afternoon. Some wonderful soul uploaded the WHOLE thing!!

I have to say I was IMPRESSED at the quality of the thing. Whoever did it obviously took it off the DVD and did a DARN good job too.

I had it seriously cranked during Mother Russia and Running Hard while cleaning the kitchen and it sounded GOOD.

Reminded me what a helluva singer Annie Haslam was/is. Serious set of pipes on that woman!! I remember reading that she had to rein herself in back in the early days, when they had a cheap PA, because she would literally overpower it, causing all kinds of feedback.

Since they were a fairly mellow, traditional progressive rock band, and she was opera trained, I wouldn't say she "rocked out" but still....one of the best female singers in the 70s, hands down.

RE: She plays bass for Jeff Beck presently.

Tal hasn't played with Beck for a few years now, I believe not since 2009. She was not wth him on his last tour.

I don't know their status, if there was some kind of falling out or not or if they've just gone different directions. He's been quoted as highly complimentary of her in the past, so assuming no real problem, I wouldn't be surprised to see them collaborate again.

Ya'd think so; it struck me as an odd collaboration when I first became aware of it.

But maybe the fact that she was so successful with Beck was because she was not so awed. Beck has intimated, in so many words, that she has uncommon confidence and presence in addition to talent.
