Top Ten Blues VocalistsBritgirl Blues singers with the best or most distinctive vocals.
The Top Ten
As I have truthfully said before; my cockatiel really does squawk and "dances" whenever I play Howlin' Wolf. The very first time I heard his voice, I was nearly knocked off my own perch! Incredible voice. Not the best, just the most distinctive. - Britgirl
Definitely. His voice was made for the blues - BrianScott01
The best female Blues singer in my humble opinion. - Britgirl
I love him BUT, although his voice is distinctive, I don't think he has the best Blues voice I've ever heard. His guitar sings better than he does. Sorry... - Britgirl
Not a blues singer at all. But his voice was perfect for that East Texas style of rock and rock 'n' roll. "Cold Shot," "Pride and Joy," "Look At Little Sister," f'rinstance.
Perhaps the richest, most emotive, most versatile male voice in blues. Ray Charles plus a sight more sumpin'-sumpin'.
Am I allowed to add this lady? Not strictly all-out Blues but her voice is amazing. - Britgirl
Seriously - 2storm
She and Etta didn't do blues very often, but when they did, y'all step on back.
Check out "Cherry Red Wine" and "Living in the House of the Blues.":).
His baby boy Bernard is no slouch, either. "The Other Side," studio if you can find it. "Live at the Jazzhaus" almost as good. Kinda blues meets Sly Stone meets reggae. Good stuff:).
His baby boy Bernard is no slouch, either. "The Other Side," studio if you can find it. "Live at the Jazzhaus" almost as good. Kinda heavy blues-rock meets Sly Stone meets reggae. N-joy:).
Just heard his performance of "It Hurts Me Too" Oh...wow! Oh my goodness...more gravel than Southend beach! But gorgeous! :). - Britgirl
Yeah, I know. He do wander. But that's one helluva cigarettes 'n' whiskey voice:).
"Nine Below Zero." "Keep It to Yourself." "Checkin' Up On My Baby." "Don't Start Me to Talking'"... Yep. Uh-huh:).
He has a nasal tone to his voice; especially with I'm a King Bee; but it isn't a voice I dislike. - Britgirl
The James Brown of Chicago blues, and every now 'n' agin, a damn good harp player.
His voice is like a mixture of Tom Waits and Howlin' Wolf. - BrianScott01
