Female voices as powerful as Tori Amos?

I'm a big Tori Amos fan. But it's hard to find female voices as good as her. I don't like a lot of the indie girl singers out there; They seem to be lacking that "wow" factor.

Some of my favorite modern singers are:

-Cat Power

-Inara George


-Hanne Hukkelberg

(btw, I don't like Regina Spektor or Feist)

Any ideas??

    I am a huge Tori fan myself, and while it's almost impossible to find anyone with the same je-ne-sais-quoi that Tori has, there are some artists who come close.

    A lot of Toriphiles really love PJ Harvey, Kate Bush, Alanis Morissette, and Sarah McLachlan, for starters.

    Here are some other talented female singers that I highly recommend:

    Siobhán Donaghy

    Kate Havnevik

    Natalie Imbruglia

    Lisa Loeb

    Martha Wainwright

    Róisín Murphy

    Nerina Pallot

    Milla Jovovich

    Liz Phair

    Melody Gardot

    Leona Naess

    Missy Higgins

    Thea Gilmore

    Tristan Prettyman

    Melanie C. (Her voice is great, and her solo albums are excellent)
