Does Anyone Know of Any White Female Blues Singers?


Karma asked:

Singing has always been my passion, but until a little while ago, I never really knew what style was best for me. I realized that my voice is perfect for jazz/blues. Does anyone know any good female blues singers? Preferably white, because its a given that black women have those amazing voices that just scream blues!! lol, so if you can give me a few names I can draw some inspiration from, that would be great!!




Janis Joplin is the first one that comes to mind. She’s probably the best known white female blues singer of the late 2oth century.
