Alex Awards - Girl Guitarists

The time has come to recognize all of the fine-looking lady guitarists out there. And these girls all have stunning talent too.

Dido Armstrong, AKA Dido

Sara Bareilles (more often considered a pianist, but she plays guitar too)

Butterfly Boucher. She plays BASS guitar. How cool is that?

Michelle Branch. The picture on her web site is much better, actually.

Jonatha Brooke

Colbie Caillat. Super hot. And I love that voice.

Susanna Hoffs. Oh yes, I had to include her.

Lisa Loeb. Where did she go? I loved those groovy glasses. Are we surprised that she has her own line of eyewear?

Sarah McLachlan. The woman just looks (and sings) better with a guitar in her hands.

Alanis Morissette. Making an appearance on the blog again. Because she's awesome. Her talent, in my opinion, is not so much in playing the guitar but in songwriting.

Dolores O'Riordan

Suzanne Vega

Can't believe I forgot Shawn Colvin. She's like my favoritest.


  1. That's quite the list. I think I like MacLachlan best. There are 3 women on this list who I think pronounce their last names wrong =D

    I just think that's funny.

  2. I agree about the talent part. Love your taste in music. As far as looks, I'm really liking Butterfly and Dolores. I may have to add them to my own list ...

  3. I can't believe I didn't make the list.

  4. Added Shawn Colvin to the end. Best for last.

  5. So many great talents, but the list could go on and on! Ani, Indigo Girls, Melissa Ferrick, Kristen Hall, Keri Herzig, Colbie is amazing, I love that you found Jonatha Brooke! She is one of my all-time favs! Women singer song writers are my crushes! HA HA So glad we got to see Butterfly last night! XO

  6. Dolores FTW. And Alanis too.
