Female adult contemporary artists

Stewart Tick
The list author says: "So what exactly is "adult contemporary music"? Of course, there are no hard-and-fast definitions. But John Rockwell of the New York Times may have put it best in his review of Melissa Errico's first CD, "Blue Like That". He wrote that the album "is pretty and contained, unashamedly popular, but balanced and proportioned like classical music". I agree, and would add that that observation could apply equally well to the other CDs on this list."

"The multi-Grammy winner that proved a female pop singer could make it today without shouting, screaming, growling, or ornamenting a melody line ostentatiously"
Feels Like Home

"More of the same, with a bit of a country flavor this time"
Not Too Late
Not Too Late
"Norah's third album, easily the equal of her first two. "Not Too Late" features more of the country-influenced style heard on "Feels Like Home"."

"On her fourth album, Norah moves away from her recent affinity with country music, and embraces a bluesy, mid-tempo rock style reminiscent of Bonnie Raitt. Aside from "Chasing Pirates", the first hit single, my favorite track is the live version of "Strangers", found only on the "Deluxe" version of the CD."

"Broadway star turns out a smart and subtle adult pop album."
Lullabies & Wildflowers
Lullabies & Wildflowers
"Melissa's second adult-contemporary album includes excellent renditions of Judy Collins' "Since You Asked", Tom Petty's "Wildflowers", and the Beatles' "Goodnight""

"A leading British adult pop star, unfortunately not so well-known in the US yet"

"Katie's sophomore effort, possibly even better than her debut"

"Katie's third album, not as consistently good as the first two. (There is some filler here.) Highlights include "Ghost Town", "Perfect Circle", and the first single, "If You Were A Sailboat"."
Life for Rent

"Despite the Top 40 success of the single "White Flag", Dido is also much better-known in Britain than America"
Finally Woken

"Another British pop star, with a style similar to  Dido's. Check out "Flying High"."

"Former teen-pop Britney clone grows up and releases an impressive adult-contemporary album. It should have been a much bigger hit, but at least "Have A Little Faith" made the adult Top 40 charts."
Wild Hope
Wild Hope
"Mandy's second adult-pop album, this one a collection of original folk-pop and soft folk-rock songs co-written by the artist. Standouts include the first single, "Extraordinary", "All Good Things", "Looking Forward", and the title track, "Wild Hope"."
Amanda Leigh (Dig)

"Third adult-pop album by young Hollywood star continues the folk-pop style featured on "Wild Hope". Notable tracks include "Love To Love Me Back", "Bug", and the first single, "I Could Break Your Heart Any Day Of the Week"."
Don't Take Your Time
Don't Take Your Time
"Excellent album by another new pop-jazz artist, with a voice and style comparable to  Katie Melua's"
Over & Over
Over & Over
"Erin's second album, equal in quality to her debut. "Holiday" and the title track, "Over and Over",  are among the highlights."
Modern Romance
Modern Romance
"Another fine album by a new pop-jazz artist. Sasha has a voice and style that will remind many of Norah Jones (but with an occasional touch of island and Brazilian rhythms)."
We Are One
We Are One
"Debut album from a new classically-trained soprano. "Raincoat" is the adult-contemporary hit single, with the bluesy pop-jazz style popularized by Norah Jones."
Coco
Coco
"Debut album by a new singer-songwriter from California. Colbie's music has a laid-back, semi-tropical feel that sounds a bit Hawaiian at times. Perhaps the reviewer at the allmusic.com web site put it best: "a lighter, brighter spin on Norah Jones that sounds like an ideal soundtrack to a few hours in a cozy coffeehouse...""
Breakthrough

"Colbie's second album doesn't include quite as many songs that really stand out as her debut did, but it is still a very worthwhile CD. The tracks that I find myself listening to most often are the first single, "Fallin' For You", and the title song, "Breakthrough"."
All Of You
All Of You
"Colbie's third album is actually an improvement over 'Breakthrough', her last effort. Among the songs that tend to stand out here are the mid-tempo title track, "All of You", "What If", and the first single, "I Do" (which features a ukulele in the instrumental accompaniment)."
Wonder In The World
Wonder In The World
"Debut pop album by young Broadway star. Perhaps somewhat too heavy on traditional pop-standard style to be classified as "contemporary", though it is certainly "adult". Particularly recommended are the country-flavored "The Sun Went Out" (very much in the Norah Jones vein), and a pensive Sinatra-esque reading of James Taylor's "Fire and Rain""
Zee Avi

"Debut album by new folk-pop artist from Malaysia who plays ukulele as well as acoustic guitar. Personal favorites include "Bitter Heart", the first single, and "Kantoi", sung partly in the Malay language (and also partly in English)."
Unbroken

"Katharine McPhee's second album is a collection of soft-rock songs aimed at the adult-contemporary audience. The American Idol alumnus seems much more comfortable with the material here than she ever did on her teen-oriented debut."
