Top 10 Female Singers with Raspy Voices
Grace is barely 13 years old and has shown her talent by winning AGT and releasing her first EP shortly after entitled, Perfectly Imperfect. The title fits her perfectly. While she may be raw, she is a breath of fresh air in a sea of overproduced music. She doesn't sing about the typical song topics and instead relates to us with emotions that we can all feel as humans. From trying to find herself, to her special relationship with her sister, to fighting bullies to a close friend's betrayal. We can all connect to the songs and realize we too, were born to shine. Her raspy voice shows us that you don't need to be perfect to make it... you can make it simply by being you.
I've not been able to listen to much of any other music since seeing Grace's audition on AGT. Her songwriting, lyrics are correct and right-on for a 12 year old, but then her non-AGT music shows a maturity that women in the music industry *wish* they had; Grace is a phenom that was born to perform and loves every moment, which makes it more enjoyable for those watching and listening. Take a listen to Beautiful Thing studio version, for a future classic.
Her voice is like no one else even though comparison have been made to other singers, her voice is Grace Vanderwaal, distinct from the other comparison.
And she's promised a full EP by Fall this year, so looking forward to that as well. Love almost all of the rest of this list but Grace is my #1 choice for making my day brighter.
I see a lot of these comment saying she's unbelievable for her age. And she's so good for being that young. I think it's absolutely robbing her because Grace VanderWaal is a phenomenal talent period. Put her in any age group you want. Close your eyes and listen to any of her songs or covers and you'll be blown away. Trust me your not going to be thinking about her age. This girl has chops. I'm very excited to see what she comes up with next.
Grace has the most diverse audience I have ever seen. The songs she writes connects with everyone. I've been listening to music for over 40 years and I don't say this lightly, she is the most incredible talent to come along in 50 years! She evokes such emotion from the audience when she sings. You can't teach that...that is a gift along with all of her other attributes which are too many to list. She is a super star and one day a legend!
I was hoping she would be first. Her voice on I love Rock and Roll is very raspy and sexy.
When she belts out Cry Baby, my heart feels as though it will explode with an electric shock. There's so much power and emotion in her voice. She's incredible. She really is.
Janis Joplin knows what's up. I never listen to female artists, but she really shows who she is through her music. I feel as if I'm reading her mind when listening to her.
She is amazing! Just listen to piece of my heart
She had a rough life.
Total Eclipse of the heart is the best song that shows off her beautiful raspy voice and talent.
It's a heartache, total eclipse of the heart, and I need a hero, all great songs.
Listen once, 'enough said.

Her voice is so distinctive. You know it is Stevie the first word she sings. Sometimes it's child like and other times it's angry...love her voice.
She can't sing anything that I don't instantly love. She's beautiful and a bit quirky, I like that in a person.
Most beautiful majestic raspy voice of all I will always LOVE her music!
She's the no. 1 Queen of rock music world!
Really an amazing vocalists with great musicality. Haley has an amazing multi-dimensional voice with a beautiful natural rasp, who can sing as smooth as silk or really gritty and raspy down from the gut and everything in between. In addition, she can do the most amazing growls and vocal runs. She is really very special.
Singer Melinda Doolittle on Haley in 2011: "I was watching the show last night with some of my favorite singers and we were in awe of what her voice can do. She can go from a raspy tone to one that is as clear as a bell in a matter of seconds. She has the vocal flexibility of a singer twice her age. She is amazing."
She is always pitch perfect and can sing live like no ones business. Her vocal range is amazing and she uses just the right amount of raspiness to effect. Haley make you feel the whole gamut of emotions during her songs. And she can sing anything!
Beyonce said of Haley that she had never heard anyone who sounded like her noting that Haley's raspiness was natural and not forced. Haley is cutting records. Her third album is awaiting release.
Black Velvet is her most known song.
Lzzy's voice is among the most versatile ever. She can go from velvet to gravel in an instant and sound better than almost anyone doing it. Her voice is a force of nature, and her heart is as impressive as her vocals. She is seriously one of the nicest and most genuine people you would ever want to meet.
Lzzy has got an amazing raspy gritty voice that is destined for Rock N Roll! Plus, she is just a genuinely good and nice person!
Her versatility is out of this world. She can sing as clearly as an angel and then add a rasp that curls your toes.
Lzzy is Amazing she can sing anything. She has such a strong voice.
Her voice is super raspy especially on their soulful cover of Ex's and Oh's.
She is amazing' fantastic.
Queen, I love her voice
She has a natural raspy, husky voice to begin with and she doesn't even have to try
"More Love" was her first top 10 hit in 1980/ It's a wonderful take on Smokey Robinson's song. "Draw of The Cards" is also great and something different from her.
One hit wonder but so good.
Betty Davis eyes.
First time I heard song thought it was Stevie Nicks.
Kim Carnes is so underrated, she deserves so much better.
I actually like her voice because it fits the theme of her songs.
She croaks a lot
Come on, you really need to know why I voted for Blondie?
What rasp is in Debbie's voice? Zero!
