OK, she's not new, but she is female.

And she has a way of remaining contemporary and in fact, just keeps getting cooler.

I think that there are heaps of great female artists out there who actually write their own music, but sadly unless they look 'sexy' they dont quite grab the attention of the mainstream. I think a lot of male artists can get away with this a little bit, there dosn't seem to be as much emphasis on men looking 'sexy', but then again the mainstream charts are usually filled with crap music....

Female artists I really like are,
early Bjork- Debut, Post and The Sugarcubes, after Post she just seemed to get a little too arty for me
Sarah McLachlan
PJ Harvery- totally amazing female performer who sings, writes and performs (how totally different!!!)
Bonnie Rait- great female blues artist
early Jewel- bit of a shame that she has now gone down the 'sexy, pop' road
Madonna- I love her heaps and admire her business savvy and staying power, she definately comes across as a woman with balls!!!!!
Joni Mitchell- the original folk mistress
Michelle Shocked
Gwen Steffani- although she is in a band I think her solo career is just around the corner and she has great style!!
Lisa Gerrard- one half of Dead can Dance and now doing her own stuff, this woman is amazingly talented

and some Aussies,
Deborah Conway
ohhhhhhhhhhh there are so many, I saw so many great female performers over summer at various festivals, if you are prepared to look beyond the mainstream, well you can really find some great talent..

Chan Marshall (aka Cat Power)
Missy Elliott
Fiona Apple
Beth Gibbons

I like Norah Jones but she's definitely in "one album is enough" category for me. Ditto for Dido and Macy Gray.

Very easy to get around with a piece of Scotch tape and a black marker.

Yes the copy control thing is very true- near the centre of the disc one just needs to 'black out' the little code with a marker pen and hey presto one cd you can burn. I feel no shame in telling people this as a friend of mine was acutally told this by the manager of a prominant Australian band at a music conference last year............
