    HEY. She asked for GOOD female singers. Keep your Disney garbage out of here. She gave you a list of musicians for comparison, too.

    If you have to watch one, watch Molly Marlette.

    Here's a Regina Spektor performance you might enjoy...

    Fiona Apple.

    This is a video featuring a great comedian named Zach Galifianakis.

    Corinne Bailey Rae. She's frequently compared to Leona Lewis. NO. CBR is superior.

    This is a cover of the Raconteurs' Steady As She Goes.

    I have a few more, but Yahoo! is limiting me to 10 links. Would you like me to send them in a message?

    EDIT: Honestly, who thumbs down Feist?

    Also, I have to ask... But which of Regina Spektor's albums do you like the most, and/or what period of her music evolution do you like?

    EDIT: These are some well known bands w/ female musicians/singers, but not necessarily exclusive to the female voice...

    The Weepies

    Iron & Wine

    Arcade Fire
