Louisa John-Krol, early Happy Rhodes, Susan Court, post-Led Zepplin faux-mediaeval rock (eg bits of Heart).
Own, often co-written
The music is pretty and new-agey, with mediaeval touches and the odd flourish of loud guitars. The lyrics are mystical, spiritual and mythical. Lori has a clear and graceful voice with an impressive range and often overlays the vocals in a heavenly way; she allows character and roughness through in her voice when the song requires something more human.

I've come to find this album very pretty, often charming, sometimes beautiful, always appealingly mystical. However, I had to fight through instrumentation that isn't my thing!
