  • Who is your fav. woman backup singer?

    Just curious about everyone's favorite northern woman backup singer(s). My favorite singer is Delia Waskewitch. She has such a strong beautiful voice. Another favorite of mine is Gladys Jefferson.
    It does not require many words to speak the truth.

          Probably those Smokey Town females and that one female for Bear Creek. Umm.....and probably thats all.

            Definitely the lady from Bear Creek. She sings pretty much the entire two verses. She doesn't even wait for the pitch of the song to drop. I was amazed when I heard her.

            And for southern... the lady with Yellow Hammer. I don't think Yellow Hammer had women singing on their previous recordings but the lady on the new recording makes a big difference.

              Gladys Jefferson, Sheila Ryder, and Adaline Okanee. I am not too interested about them Youngbird girls... you need to have your heart into.

                Best women's back up i'd have to say is Lynn Smoke, Joni Shawana, Kiki McGregor....these ladies are from Ontario and sing wit numerous groups here.....but dang they can sing, they like got this awesome rhythm to their voice, So if your at a pow-wow in Ontario check them out you'll be amazed........Oh and of course Kit Landry from BearCreek,she rocks.....Yeah man these are my girls....they are cool, so if yall want to learn to sing jus ask them, they'll give you a few pointers, or jus go talk to them.

                              to all the women who sing........ that is great and i would not just chose a person i would chose all the grandmothers who SIT behind a drum and sing. who never open up there mouths too wide and who you can't tell they're singing but they still blast. i love to watch the older women sing.
                              Grant me the senility to forget the people i never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones i do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.
