names you might not have heard before
Shanna in a Dress (there’s a story...)
The Mighty Orq
A few of mine include the following: Kim Richey, Darden Smith, and the guys from "Blue Rodeo, Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor."
Tom Waits .... ‘nough said.....and if I wanted to stretch the envelope, I’d say Elvis Costello... I mean, he’s done well, still kicking arse after 44 years, critically acclaimed, but under appreciated by the general public.
But I stand by my original thought of Tom Waits... the guy’s a genius, perhaps a lil rough around the edges for many folks, but, hey, nothing good comes easy ..... although, stand by, I didn’t check my Megamillions ticket for tonight.... a billion return on a $3 investment would be easy... but, ya know.
I was fortunate enough to see Dar about 7-8 years ago in York, PA. Yep, she’s a keeper.
If you like TW, you would probably like the late Bill Morrissey from New Hampshire. He has a unique voice, and many of his songs tell a story.
I think we’re all rated appropriately by the people who are paying attention. I’m happy to encourage people to check out Greg Cartwright, though.
Steve Forbert. The man has been plugging away and doing his thing for going on 50 years and has made some amazing albums. Got to see him open for Buddy and Julie Miller at The Tabernacle. Steve with his guitar and a pair of boots for rhythmn was better than many full bands I have seen. Keith Urban did a remarkably bland version of Romeo's Delight, which I hope got Steve a nice royalty check at least.
Gurf Morlix. Also the best name. And beard.
Also Chuck Prophet. The trifecta. (Quadfecta?) Songwriter. Singer. Guitar slinger. Showman. Criminally under the radar for his talent and catalog.
Fred Eaglesmith. Top-notch songwriter and great performer.
Lowell George (RIP)
Absolutely! Here is one of my favorite Bill Morrissey songs.....
Plus 1 for Vic Chesnutt! I have his “West Of Rome” CD. Great stuff!
Steve Forbert fan here too! “It Isn’t Going To Be That Way” is one of the most poignant ballads I have ever heard. He’s not too shabby on harmonica either.
Gordon Peterson. Dude drops a fantastic album, then disappears. Years later, Eddie Vedder gets more notice and makes more money with a decent, if inferior cover of his greatest track.
Good ones guys! Keep ‘em com in’. My singer-songwriter playlist has been rejuvenated!
Robert Cray - All the accolades are still not enough...
One of East Nashville's best kept secrets, Todd Snider:
Chris Lopez from the Rockateens
