For this #TuesTop10 I decided to collect together some of my favourite female singers. I have a real thing for a raspy voice that sounds a bit raw as it pushes through and out.

Out of this playlist I’ve only seen Florence + The Machine and Esben + The Witch, but both were incredible. They both gave me real wow moments where I was genuinely infatuated by their talent and voices.

Alabama Shakes are a new one for me, but I’m loving their work and so decided to include them.  Amy’s always a winner, and Adele, wow. Even though she’s totally overplayed it’s with good reason. I heard that one in six households in England own her album – that’s pretty amazing. I’ve even met her before and she was so lovely and funny, makes me like her even more.

And you’ve gotta love a bit of Bonnie Tyler, surely?

Hope you like it!
