Does anyone know of any songs with a female singing lead while also playing bass?

Sheryl Crow did a lot of these. Here’s one with Eric Clapton:

I grew up to this lady. Excellent.

Another classic, Meshell Ndegeocello -


I need to check out her solo work, I’m not really familiar but it’s probably awesome!

Ooh cool, hadn’t heard of her! I like the mix of super-gnarly-fast synth bass and the vintage-y Jazz bass pops.

Tina Weymouth!

If you’ve never seen them (or Talking Heads) live, yes, Chris Frantz really is the chattiest drummer evar :slight_smile:

There is a new Tal Wilkenfeld record out, where she apparently is also singing now (apart from playing the bass) - might be worth checking out!
