Brittany Howard is singer for Alabama Shakes. She has a very powerful and dark voice and sings constantly with a lot of distortion, specially in her high range. Alabama Shakes has a very short discography for a while, and their "Boys & Girls" - their only album so far - are entirely notewatched.

So, here goes some of her studio performances:

That's a pretty small "significant low notes" section compared to the high notes section for a contralto! She does have a rather androgynous voice.

Awesome cover, how many women could channel a Zep tune like this? At points it's almost like hearing what it would've sounded like if Janis Joplin covered Zeppelin.

That's a great performance! Tons of sung D5's and some B4's there, by the way. I'm definitely going to add these new notes to the OP. And yeah, she sounds a lot like Janis Joplin, and what an great distortion technique in this cover.

Anyone working on this thread? I mean, the band does have another album to notewatch by now (Sound & Color). If not, I'll go ahead and notewatch the album.

And that low notes section, though. Wow.
