Music | Female singer-songwriters №20: The 50 top female singer-songwriters according to The Telegraph

Sporadically, I presented a female singer-songwriter that came to my mind right there and then, for whatever reason. The choices had absolutely nothing to do with any Top list. Then I found The Telegraph list. These female singer-songwriters come in no particular Top 50 order, I assume or at least hope, and this is a great reminder list. “Oh, YES, yes, her! She is good!” “That’s right! How could I forget?!” “Umm, yes, I was meaning to …” “Never heard of, but OK, let’s find out.” “Really?!” No Top list is ever perfect in everyone’s eyes, or for that matter ears, but it is a start for exploration. Any music provider or your own music collection is your next stop.

In alphabetic order: Adele, Aimee Mann, Alicia Keys, Amy Winehouse, Ani DiFranco, Annie Lennox, Aretha Franklin, Barbra Streisand, Beth Orton, Björk, Bonnie Raitt, Carly Simon, Carole King, Cat Power, Chrissie Hynde, Cyndi Lauper, Debbie Harry, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Joan Armatrading, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Judee Sill, Kate and Anne McGarrigle , Kate Bush, k.d. lang, Kirsty MacColl, KT Tunstall, Lady Gaga, Laura Marling, Lauryn Hill, Loretta Lynn, Madonna, Nina Simone, Norah Jones, Patti Smith, Patty Griffin, PJ Harvey, Regina Spektor, Rickie Lee Jones, Roberta Flack, Sade, Sandy Denny, Sarah McLachlan, Shania Twain, Sinéad O’Connor, Siouxsie Sioux, Stevie Nicks, Tori Amos, Tracy Chapman
