    Joanne Shaw Taylor - great voice, dirty blues and she's from the Black Country. What's not to like?

    While on a quick youtube search I also found that there's a festival called Ribs & Blues. beesonthewhatnow we're going.

    Is there any reason nobody's mentioned Tracy Chapman yet? Some of my earliest memories are driving around with my dad listening to her....

    That from a small white woman from Streatham,I could also post the hundreds of black women blues singers/guitarists but the little 'un may think it's all been done before and give up music before she starts.

    Don't forget the classics: masses, opera, and oratorio. Handel has some great ones for female singers like Let the Bright Seraphim in Samson and Rejoice Greatly from The Messiah.

    Belly......Tanya was ex throwing Muses and Breeder. Which are also pretty good examples of what you're looking for.

    Good music but hardly appropriate for one of tender years!

    OMG that reminds me of me at that age - except 30 years earlier so in my case bigger hair, and covering Black Sabbath rather than Metallica. :oops:

    Oh and BTW, in my opinion, the best thing you can do to show her rock isn't just 'for boys', is to encourage her to do what she wants in terms of music - encouragement is worth a thousand video examples.

    4 year olds love grinding punk, it's only when the peer pressure starts kicking in that they reject it.
