It is no secret that I'm a huge Tori Amos fan. I'm also really into Fiona Apple, Sarah Slean and Regina Spektor and have developed an obsession with Amanda Palmer.

These ladies are definitely my favourites and I was wondering if anyone else had particularly strong feelings for any female singer-pianists.

My favourite is definitely Amanda Palmer, though I think I enjoy her Dresden Dolls stuff better than her solo album. I may be seeing her live (for free!) in a few days. Yay!

These aren't female-piano, but stuff you might like regardless - and a bunch you've probably already heard of.

Inner
Jolie Holland
Nina Gordon
The Pierces
Joanna Newsom (she plays the harp and sounds like a pixie to me)

Favourite would definietely be Regina Spektor. In fact, I bought my ticket to see her when she comes to Perth yesterday, MAJOR happy dance :)

I also adore Alison Sudol, she has some really beautiful songs.

This is a bit off topic, but you mentioned Amanda Palmer. I love Amanda Palmer, and my train of thought kind of triggered this way a bit.

Last year and I went and saw Meow Meow (www.meowmeowrevolution.com . . . ) at the Opera House. She has performed a few times with Ms Palmer. On this occasion she was performing on her own, but she did a few of Amanda Palmers songs, as well as a few german songs, originals and a hilarious rendition of Nick Caves 'Red Right Hand'.

She has got an amazing voice, and is often piano accompanied. She is a WAAPA graduate, too - she sat in on a rehearsal for Cabaret on campus just a few weeks ago.

Youtube some of her stuff.

I have one of her recordings I can mail you, too.

End of hijack.

My favorite is Charlotte Martin, though I'm definitely a Tori Amos fan. I also like Imogen Heap, Sia, Brooke Fraser, and Ingrid Michaelson.

I've always been partial to Kate Bush's music.

Alicia Keys- she is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. And she always sings and plays the piano!

I really like Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish) as a vocalist and pianist, although it seems as though she doesn't play Piano often. I had a look on Youtube and she did a cover of "You Would have Loved This" and on her recent album sneak preview there was a video of her singing and playing piano. I'd really love to see her play it more often. :)
