Yeah,  I can add Dylan,  early Van Morrison,  Robert Smith (who has 
really become a good
singer over the years), Richard Butler (of the Psychedelic Furs), Tom 
Marianne Faithful and the list goes on and on.

Oooh, ooh, ooh,  I want to hear that.  What's the app?

Also, I don't know if you ever heard the all acapella
experimental voice record I put out in 2004,  Faux Voix.    You might 
enjoy it.
there are examples of it at www.looppool.info       I actually worked up 
the nerve to
do about a year's worth of concerts where I only used human voice, a 
microphone, processing and
my loopers.    It scared me but I wanted to walk onstage without ideas 
in my head and create music
with only voice.    Forcing myself to do that (and boy, was it 
intimidating at first) really gave me
a lot of courage to sing more.
I've even bought a Behringer Feedback Eliminator so that I can process 
my voice through multiple
distortion/fuzz pedals and constrain the feedback that always occurs 
when you do this live.
I haven't really worked it out yet, but that's one of the projects I've 
wanted to have time to
follow through with in this year of not touring or actively doing the 
looping festival.   woohooo!
