Just a personal taste and not disputing the voices, but its just a bit too "clean" a sort of music for my liking. No offence intended.
Mark Langegan I knew only from QotSA songs. I like listen to his voice just as I like listen to Tom Waits.
Anyway, some ladies:
And in a bit of stretch of the thread intentions but certainly a singer/songwriter.... and so damn sexy (look at that sexy smile at the end)

Thread named awesome voices without Mike Patton, Freddie Mercury or Phil Collins?

To obvious meight.
Check out his bubblegum album, or if you like 90s rock Screaming Trees(lol dat bandname) - Sweet Oblivion
And by all means PJ Harvey is a fuckin awesome singer/songwriter and should be in here.

Not very big yet but this guy has such an awesome voice, looking forward to more work in the future:
Not a big fan of Johnny Cash usually but the cover of NIN's Hurt is awesome:

For the 3 metal singers I chose their cleanest songs to highlight the voice. Here's some less clean stuff.

Gerry Rafferty - pitch perfect voice and he once had Billy Connelly as a band mate.
Could add Kate Bush but which song to choose?

Ya'll need to put your shit under spoilers.
Way back in the day, when I was still young and just starting college, I was a confused little kid that wanted to no longer be alive. I bought a cd on a lark because I liked the cover. The first song moved me to the point of tears and made me hold off my plans of not-living-anymore. 11 years later I'm still not dead and that band has only gotten better and better.

Folk music's Janis. Sandy Denny. (Only girl who ever guest starred on a Led Zep track)

There was also, more or less from the same mileu, Steeleye Span. If Sandy was the English Janis, Maddie was the English Joan Baez, a plain girl who was somehow sexy as fuck, with aircooled teeth and a vibrato that could kill you stone dead.
