I love Janis Joplin's music, and have never really looked at anyone else for this style of female, bluesy, ballsy, gritty, growly, sweet and slow style.

Who is currently doing the Janis thing?

Susan Tedeschi at BluesFest this year was awesome... Anyone else?

Yes, before I'd finished reading your post, Susan Tedeschi came to mind.

But do they have to have the tragic personal life to really qualify?

There will never be another Janis. Just like there will be a modern Ertha Kitt.

Nice find on Joss Stone and Melissa Etheridge.

You know, as bizarre as this artist might sound, if Pink would stick to blues and forgot the pop tunes, I reckon she'd be great at Bluesfest.

Beth Hart does a good Janis but may be bit too over the top for some people

Wendy Saddington had the mojo and a certain style; Kasey Chambers is fantastic; Susan Tedeschi is brilliant, has the mojo and has class; but Janis had attitude with a capital A and that set her apart. The closest artist I have seen to Janis is Dallas Frasca.

They dressed differently and acted differntly because they were from different eras but Amy Winehouse always reminded me of Janis Joplin. I just think they were so similar in many ways.

Amen Dallas Frasca.

She's back soon from recording and touring O/S, can't wait to see her again and hear the new stuff.

Buddy Guy is without doubt the best guitar player alive.......the way he plays is beyond anyone. Amen

Cee Cee is amazing she has got to be channeling janis , have a listen. CCJ put a post on here a couple of yrs ago ( page 26 future artists 2012) hoping to get a start at bluesfest . she would be awsome.

i think its time we got joss back again!!

she was very young last time,i think she has matured a lot from what ive seen.

and while were talking female vocalists,how about sara storer.im not big on country,but she has a destinctive voice and definately
australian.the one thing that annoys me about most aussie country artists is they want to sound american.

Please do not bring Joss Stone back. A fantastic singer who does not
know when to shut up.
Her last time at Bluesfest was marred by not giving the backing musicians
a fair go. She did not draw breath.
That said, she is as close as one would get to Janis Joplin.

We do have country singers who are non American. Gleny Rae Virus.
Interestingly Kasey Chambers has her CD's in a lot of the American stores.
That is the ones that are left. No wonder she tries to be American.
