Joni Mitchell makes her first appearance on page 2? Shame.

I'd say for classic, besides Joni (what a brilliant artist she is/was), I'd say Aretha and Madonna (I was a fan in the 80s). Oh, and I also like Emmylou Harris and Gillian Welch on the country/americana tip.

Current artists, I have a crush on Phoebe Bridgers, her songs are fantastic. I also like Jenny Lewis, she's quality, really good live.

Sister Rosetta Tharpe. This where it began. Music is a male dominated world, but there are many many lead guitarists and vocalists who
could take lessons from her.

I freaking love Sarah Brightman and I had front row seats to her Harlem tour. She definately carried over her knack for putting a show together from her time with ALW. She is incredible.

Joni Mitchell and its not close....she was a force of nature...a number of her songs had totally bizarre guitar tunings, I think she is one of the greatest song writers of all time.

Honorable mentions to Susan Tedeschi and the Wilson sisters (Heart)....

I would also add Whitney, but I dont really know a ton of her music. I would say that I compare every national anthem to Whitney. That voice she had was amazing.
