Thåström / Peace Love & Pitbulls

Thåström is a much beloved rock star in his native Sweden, but virtually unknown in the English-speaking countries. His only foray into singing in English was with the short-lived band Peace Love & Pitbulls, whose industrial-tinged rock began to gain a following right before they disbanded. There's a lot of hard rock and dark, noir-ish folk in his solo works.

Kate Bush

Kate Bush is definitely one of the most influential women in pop/rock.  So many artists made it huge by turning elements of her sound into mainstream hits, from Tori Amos to Florence & The Machine.
