Here's another! It's our loss that Laura Basra has vanished from the limelight.

Great prog, but vocals are controversial, just look up PA reviews:

All of the White Willow albums have good female vocals.....and though Trees is more  folk that prog Celia Humphries does some nice vocals.

Preferably 70s (and late 60s).. If YOU think it's prog, please paste the YouTube link... Duets are cool, too, and the blending of certain voices can be quite great. I keep running into them, and many are not well known.

I tend to love soothing, voices in a high register, with piano, violins, slower-tempo, but of course there are exceptions. I notice many of my favorites might be considered "classical" (piano), like the song "Face of Yesterday" by Illusion.

Here's one I love... I'll post more if the thread gets going.


I just noticed you posted the same thread on another music forum, nice strategy for a lot of suggestions. The other site (non prog) is leading though with replies and views Confused.

Some excellent South Wales bands with stunning female vocals. Panic Room, Luna Rossa, Three Colours Dark, Karnataka, and The Reasoning, all linked by common persons at one time.


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

It's cool to compare answers.

Somewhat darker and harder RPI (and really bombastic)

Agreed, all of the Renaissance studio albums from Prologue through to Azure D'Or, plus Live at Carnegie Hall.  Annie Haslam's solo albums, Annie in Wonderland (1977), Still Life (1985), Annie Haslam (1989), Blessing in Disguise (1994), and The Dawn of Ananda (2000),  tho not exactly prog are definitely worth checking out.  If we really must have a Prog Related category then it is a bit of a puzzle why Annie's solo work isn't listed on here given her involvement with Renaissance.  Did I mention that I'm a massive Annie Haslam fan?

Plus I recommend the first three Curved Air studio albums (Air Conditioning, Second Album, Phantasmagoria), and Curved Air Live.
And is it any wonder that the monkey's confused? - Roger Waters

I know itís been a few days, but I LOVE this songÖ And when I first listened, after a few seconds, I didnít think much, but Iím glad I listened to this all the way. Thereís a dozen songs by Curved Air I am just discovering, thanks to this thread, so thanks, and check this out if you have 5 minutes. Itís a great song, and a great vocal.

Hard to beat Renaissance, Magenta or Curved Air.
