Alannah Myles is a Canadian singer, most famous for her hit single "Black Velvet" in the late 80's. Her voice is very unique, possessing both a very soft and lovely sound, while also being able to produce some nice, raspy notes when belting. If you like some old school blues rock, (Or old school rock in general) I highly recommend listening to her.

She hits a butt load of good-sounding high notes in every song. Hence almost every song name appearing more than one time. Apologies if this seems overkill, but she hits highs everywhere it almost can't really be helped.

Black Velvet, a good showcase of her voice.:
