Five Female musicians that will MELT YOUR FACE!
1.Grace Potter and the Nocturnals; Multi instrumentalist. Plays the B3,a flying Vee and sings like an angel. How cool is that? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8FPwNDOd_I

With joe Satriani, Cortez The Killer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paeNnR33i5Q

2.Carolyn Wonderland! Sings like Aretha and Janis on a ten day bourbon soaked bender and plays the slide guitar like a Mother fucker! http://www.carolynwonderland.com /

Everybody thinks she's a bad girl http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32ovlpQ_F4k&feature=rela...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bFfsgzXzIE

A song for Molly Ivins http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zm1WGJvhkdo

3. Allie Kral from Cormeal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3Vh9IGcbO8 (Nothing like a bluegrass Talking Heads cover!)

and the show up on the archive here is incredible! http://www.cornmealinthekitchen.com / (I was there)

(with a great band, Railroad Earth): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMAfLhzqLH8 (the fiddle duet with Tim Carbone is just too good!)

4. Ann Marie Calhoun http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHSnE8raC0U (Doing the Phish song, Stash)
and with Widespread Panic http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_fwgkpghtM&feature=rela...

5. Theresa Andersson: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0T5aySzkYiI
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDS9DmbptzQ
At Lousiana Music Factory http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ww5sMfP8UtE

This lady does it all too, i ahve seen her do fidle feedback jams at 10 AM and jam with everyone in new Orleans.

I think right now is a very special time in the world. now we have the females that are very accomplished rock musicians. They can get down with anyone. There are a ton more too...The Abalone Dots. Ani Di Franco (who is an awesome guitar player), the Dixie Chicks too. used to be that girls were singers but now they can melt your face. Bonnie Raitt, Joni Mitchell (in a very different way) and Joan jett are probably the ones that have the most credit due to them. they were the first women i ever saw getting down on an insturment.

1. Saw Grace Potter & the Nocturnals at a small place in PA
last winter. Awesome band and Grace has a stage presence kind of like a young Grace Slick. She just takes over. They left everyone in the room grinning from ear to ear.

You mentioned Allie Krall in a post a while back and I'm thankful you did. I totally agree on the duet with Carbone.

Can't wait to check out the others. I love your musical recommendations. Keep 'em coming.

I LOVED Carolyn Wonderland and the Talking Heads cover was a real trip!

On a related note, Neko Case never fails to melt my face: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3ShWvRLYsM
On edit: another one of my favorites from Neko: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fhur6g8_BM

3. Cool! Thanks for all the links.
I love great female singers and songwriters.

Here's one that definitely fits in among the others on your list:

Natalia Zukerman, fantastic guitarist with a huge dose of southern spice and a healthy voice. She's got the genetics of a highly accomplished musical family, but she's pushing her own thing very well.

9. Jennifer Batten with Jeff Beck playing "Blue Wind"
Batten taps out some of Jan Hammer's keyboard fills.

Awesome.
