Since I know it’s fruitless to ask that you don’t post a long list of songs/artists, I’ll just say that if you really want someone to listen, you won’t post a bunch (at least not all at once). I’d appreciate a few words about the artist, like where they’re from, do they write their own music, etc. I would say this is especially true if you don’t know how to embed, please resist just posting a YT link.

The first artist is Eilen Jewell, from Boise, Idaho. She’s a singer/songwriter and she does tour. Her guitar player is Jerry Miller, who was a founding member of the San Francisco band, Moby Grape. He’s a very tasteful player.



A Boy Named Banjo is a band out of Nashville. Three years ago (or so) we went to an outdoor Country music festival in Buena Vista, Colorado with our daughter and SIL. There was a main stage, and there was a big tent off to the side where the non-headliners played. When I walked into the tent this band was just kicking off this song; it’s kind of anthemic, and I liked it immediately. We were there a couple days and I spent most of my time in that tent.

Kurt Vile

He's a musician from the Philly area that used to be in the band The War On Drugs from 2003-2008. I really dig his lo-fi, retro-y sound, it's very cool to me:

Foy Vance is one of the best vocalists alive, imo. He's also a fabulous songwriter and just flat out one of my favorite artists around right now. There are times when I feel like I just listen to nothing but this guy for weeks at a time.

Irish guy who grew up in America while his father was a minister. Not religious music but obviously a big gospel influence. I have a hard time choosing which songs to post.

I'm sure a lot of you know who Ambrosia is. Did you know their albums contain stuff like this?

Thanks to all who have posted thus far. I have listened to every song. Some, just didn’t appeal to me and I didn’t listen all the way through, others I really enjoyed.

I liked Bob Dunlap, I gravitate to spare, roots, performances.

I thought Sophie B was good too, although I couldn’t pick out much difference in the two recordings.

I thought Foy Vance was the best in the thread thus far. His voice is different, but his delivery reminded me of Van Morrison. Of the two I liked “The Sapling” best.

Here's a couple more from the same album.

oddball, I liked “Girlfiend” from Dunlap.

I thought Jackson Emmer was good; he reminded me a bit of Ryan Bingham, and that’s a good thing

When I listened to Wardruna and Aurora, I thought to myself, “This sounds like music to accompany Ragnar while performing a Blood Eagle on an enemy. Then I looked up Wardruna—-that’s exactly what it is Big Grin

Gee, I hope I’m not the only one listening to the songs submitted by your brothers in the Forum, there’s some good stuff in here.

Stan Rogers from Ontario, is a Canadian singer/songwriter. I guess he's kind of a Canadian icon, but I hadn't heard of him until I was searching for sea shanties several years ago and came across his song, Barrett's Privateers.

When Canadians were asked to pick an alternate national anthem, Stan's song, Northwest Passage, came out as the winner.

Unfortunately, Stan died in an aircraft fire in 1983 in Kentucky. His son carries on his legacy as a singer.

I'll leave you with two songs from Stan. The first is a song he covered by a Scottish folk singer by the name of Archie Fischer called The Witch of the Westmorland. Stan put his own spin on the song as he said to make it more understandable to his Canadian audience, but Archie's version is very good too and you should check it out.



The second song I find very relatable. I left a small town in Tennessee with many dying industries to move to north central Montana for a very good job. Many of the lyrics of this song are thoughts I've had myself. I don't like cowboy clothes and everything here is brown and dusty most of the year.

Can't embed from my phone but I wonder if anyone here listens to James McMurtry. Seems like he'd be a hit here. This song is awesome. Ray Wylie Hubbard also recorded it and his version is wonderful, as well.
