What french singers can you suggest me?

I just started learning french and of course I'm fascinated by this beautiful language and the thing is that so far the only french songs I've heard are from Édith Piaf and Luis Mariano, it is not that I don't like them I actually love them!! but I mean I'd like to get more involved with french culture and listen to contemporary music and I would like someone to suggest me artists with really good french music. I like a little bit of everything, from rock to pop and any other kind of genre that is performed in France. I'd really appreciate help!

I heartily recommend Francoise Hardy, Her clear simple delivery is not only exquisite but also excellent for students of the French language.

...and those are only two of my all-time favorites. She has more.

Oh, how could I forget Soeur Sourir? Also of Hardy's era, but religious music but quite catchy. Most famed for "Dominique", but here's another less celebrated but just as catchy tune for the vagabond--Tous Le Chemins.

Honorable mention for Lucille Starr for "The French Song" which was a big hit in the 1960's even among English speakers:
