Top 10 Greatest Female Singer/Songwriters of All Time0744rose
The Top Ten
There will never be another Joni Mitchell - her beautiful lyrics, fearless exploration of the music, and her absolute focus on her art make her unique. From Song to a Seagull through Mingus, I doubt you will find a body of work so varied and so good.
Hey, Blue, songs are like tattoos
Joni Mitchell created good lyrics. She is a legend.
When it was released the Tapestry album sold more records than any album ever recorded More Than the Beatles more than Elvis more than anybody it had five songs that between Carole King and other artists reached number one on the charts and to this day it has only been bested in sales by Michael Jackson's Thriller and the Eagles Greatest Hits
Just the best writer / performer, closely followed by Carly Simon - and where's Diane Warren in this list...?
Genius songwriter from an extremely young age. She wrote her third album, Speak Now, all by herself when she was only 19. Every song on that album is incredible. Her Red album also has quite a few lyrical gems on it such as State of Grace and All Too Well.
Nothing to say, she is the queen!
Shes a storyteller.

Every mans dream woman mid seventies through mid eighties. I Remember when real women walked the planet with style and grace.
All around the greatest female singer songwriter of all time.
Amazing. - Swellow
Her Miming and voice are extraordinary. She comes across as very shy and rarely tours. She's a one off. Unique in every way.
Only Joni Mitchell is Kate's peer among female singer songwriters. The depth of meaning and emotional impact of so many of her songs, the gorgeous music and her amazingly expressive voice are inimitable. On top of that, she is one of the first artists to seize control of her music from her label and is a pioneer in video and live performance excellence.
No one is as influential across genres, from Big Boi to Bjork, from Solange to St. Vincent, from Tori Amos to Lady Gaga, and so many more.
I can't believe someone like Taylor Swift is Higher Than This Legend Just Sad - Thecyanryan
Trashy website indeed. I would put Mariah Carey on the top 3. So underrated even for how huge her success all throughout her career. She makes the melody, the runs, the lyrics, almost everything, except for the accompaniment for she is not into musical instrument. How can they not appreciate her talent? She's so underrated as a songwriter.
This whole website is TRASH! Mariah has written EVERY SINGLE ONE OF HER SONGS, & COMPOSED them + PRODUCED them. Her lyrics are ethereal, and have a far deeper meaning when you actually SEE the lyrics! Don't try the QUEEN OF BILL BOARD like this! GIVE MIMI THE NUMBER ONE SPOT!
Many of the singers mentioned above haven't even wrote a single song
She's just..i mean...NO WORDS CAN EXPLAIN # QUEENV 1 Comment
Wow She should totally be higher, like her word play and her voice is amazing
Jennifer Jennings is one of the hottest and most promising modern country singer/songwriters in Chicago. Yes, that’s right, country from Chicago. The Windy City, while being known as the Home Of The Blues, also has a long tradition of country music, which at times gets overlooked. Jennifer Jennings and her band represent the newer style of pop and rock-influenced country, drawing their inspiration as much from songwriters like Tom Petty and Sheryl Crow as from anything coming out of Nashville. The result is music that combines the story-telling type of songwriting of Americana with a sound based in the classic rock that we all love that seems fresh, new, and familiar at the same time.
The Jennifer Jennings Band has been described as "The Allman Brothers meets Sheryl Crow". Jennifer has a phenomenal voice, hearkening back to the great female rock artists of the 60's and 70's. She has a clear, rich, alto voice of uncommon quality - versatile enough to be equally at ...more - Garjen

The in thing at the moment
Adele is the best singer-songwriter of all time, and it's not even that close. Joni Mitchell? She has a self-described "helium voice". Bob Dylan? Again, songwriter..yes. Great singer..not exactly. Adele excels at both, and she has the record setting album sales and grammy wins to back it up too.
Ann and Nancy are probably the most dynamic singer songwriters ever. They should follow the beauty and class, respectively, of Joni Mitchell and Carol King in the #3 spot light. No women have ever rocked harder than them though Tina Turner for sure has her place in history along side of the Wilson sisters.
