I've probably missed a few. I couldn't imagine ever thinking I wouldn't want to listen to something because it's produced by females or any other particular group. At the same time, I don't have to like all female music - I find Alanis Morrissette trite and annoying.

The only one I listen to a lot of and really love is Alanis Morissette... but I do have albums by others...

Jewel's debut is one of my favorite albums of the 90s, though I don't listen to it much anymore and I haven't liked much of what she's done since.

The newest cd I bought is Tuuli's "Here We Go".

They were the house band for comedy central's premium blend for awhile.

I also liked Bellefire's cd. They're one of those "pop" groups that were put together by producers. Good songs and voices though.

I also listen to classical music, so there's plenty of female musicians there too.

Leila Josefowicz's Violin For Anne Rice is one of my favorite cds to chill out with.

As far as country, there's Martina McBride and Sara Evans.

I'm a guy and I buy female artists almost exclusivly. I guess I just like the writing sensibilities of female artists and the voices. Among favorites are Ani Difranco, Diane Krall, Norah Jones, Martina Sorbara, Tift Merritt, Allison Krause, Janis Siegal and Andrea Florian.

i could write a long list, but i won't. the answer is "yes".

i do find it odd to hear peoples reasons for not liking female singers/musicians. it isn't that the people are sexist... my brother recently bought his first female artist cd: Vanessa Carlton. blech, imo. not a good way to start..

i had a foreign exchange student in high school who didn't like female singers, either. he said that he just didn't like their sound.

okay, okay.. i'll make a list (but only those with female singers):

Tori Amos
Erykah Badu
The B-52's
The Bangles (i think susanna hoff's voice is hypnotic, in the right songs)
Belly/Tanya Donnelly
Bjork/The Sugarcubes
The Breeders/The Pixies
The Cardigans
Patsy Cline
The Cranberries
Sheryl Crow
Dance Hall Crashers
Ani DiFranco
Cesaria Evora
PJ Harvey
Lauryn Hill
Etta James
Aimee Mann
Alanis Morrisette (i have to be in the right mood, though)
Mazzy Star
Edith Piaf
The Skatalites/Doreen Shaffer
Suzanne Vega (i'm surprised nobody else has mentioned her yet, that i've noticed)
The Velvet Underground (w/ Nico)

the one female artist who i ever regret buying:

those are all that i can think of without either going into my collection or my spreadsheet. (half of them i only thought of because i saw them posted here..)

Yep... Infact I'd venture a guess that at least 2/3 of my cd collection is a female singer, female singer led band or female band.

I have a lot of cds by Garbage, Tori, Sarah McLachlan, Madonna, Enigma(I count this since most of the songs that are sung have a female singing), delerium (the latest 2 cds have a lot of female vocal songs), Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac(again most songs have female led vocals), and many more.

i'm listening to Aimee Mann's "Lost in Space" right now. thought i'd just say that.
"Lost in Space" might be my favorite new album this year.. maybe.. it came out too recently me for me to objectively judge, though.
