When we say "Vault Diva," we mean it in the sense of "goddess," not "fussy, eccentric prima donna" (although that wasn't necessarily a reason for exclusion from this playlist, either). Whether it's Janis Joplin's grit, Big Mama Mae Thornton's pure blues, Aretha Franklin or Roberta Flack's soothing soul, Linda Ronstadt's charming country-rock, Sister Rosetta Tharpe's sassy gospel, Chris Connor's smoky-voiced ballads, or Dakota Staton's swinging scat, these sirens of song can hypnotize you with their voices and personalities - hit play on this mix and let yourself fall under the spell.
