Top Ten Best Female Singers In Rock Bands


The Top TenXW

1Amy Lee - EvanescenceAmy Lynn Hartzler, known professionally as Amy Lee, is an American singer-songwriter, classically trained pianist and composer. She is also the lead singer to the Arkansas band Evanescence.

Amy Lee has very high vocal range and she can shift her voice from singing high notes to low notes, especially when you listen to Good Enough. Her voice is so unique that patented Evanescence as untypical. There is an otherworldly feel to her voice; haunting, mysterious, and deep. I think, everybody loves to sing like Amy Lee.

2Hayley Williams - ParamoreHayley Nichole Williams is an American singer, songwriter and musician. She is best known as the lead vocalist, occasional keyboardist and primary songwriter of the American rock band Paramore.

Just listen to 'All I wanted' say no more

Hayleigh's number one for sure. I like Amy Lee, she's great but Hayleigh's Amazing.

3Debbie Harry - BlondieDeborah Ann "Debbie" Harry is an American singer-songwriter and actress, best known as the lead singer of the new wave and punk rock band Blondie.
4Lzzy Hale - HalestormElizabeth Mae "Lzzy" Hale is an American singer, songwriter, and musician. She is best known as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the American hard rock band Halestorm, which she co-founded in 1997.
5Stevie Nicks - Fleetwood MacStephanie Lynn "Stevie" Nicks is an American singer and songwriter, best known for her work with Fleetwood Mac and an extensive solo career, which collectively have produced over forty Top 50 hits and sold over 140 million albums.
6Christy Johnson - Dreamkiller
7Ann Wilson - HeartAnn Dustin Wilson is an American musician, best known as the lead singer and songwriter of the hard rock band Heart.

Most of the other singers on this list wouldn't be what they are if Ann Wilson had not paved the way. Almost every vocalist/musician that I know would agree that Ann Wilson is in a category of her own. This list should be titled "Top Ten Best Female Singers In Rock Bands... Other Than Ann Wilson".

9Jenny Lewis - Rilo Kiley

Jen Ledger is so underrated. She deserves way more than the love she's getting now, of course, she can't top Amy Lee in any way, but she is an amazing artist.

In the beginning, all of Vanilla Ninja's members were singing in equal parts, but on "Blue Tattoo" and "Love is War", Kuurma became the lead singer of the band.
She has such a beautiful voice. It is so rough and so real, you can hear all of the unique peculiarities. It is so unlike most other vocals, which are mostly clear.
