How about Billy Strings? A fabulous young talent and can play an AJ like it was meant to be played.

Bwahaha - How about Tom Rapp (RIP). Was with a band called Pearls Before Swine in the 1960s which shared a label with the Fugs.

A couple from the first Pearls LP "One Nation Underground"

A great cover of a song we all listened to as kids

A couple of others whom I cannot get enough of.

First up is Carla Olson. She started out with the Textones, went solo and then teamed up with Gene Cark and later Mick Taylor. The version she and Taylor do of "Winter" on her Ring of Truth LP is nothing short of amazing.

With Gene Clark.

Another is Bekka Bramlett the daughter of Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett. She definitely inherited her mother's lungs.

Here she is with Billy Burnette (the son of Dorsey Burnette and nephew of Johnny Burnette). If this don't bring a smile to your face and get your *** moving you ain't alive.

With her Mom. Talk about making a righteous noise.

Lots of good stuff posted!

I have a few of my own.

Jason Isbell (maybe not off the radar):

Jason is certainly not under the radar. He's won 4 Grammy's (if that means anything to anyone) recorded 3 albums with DBT and has at least 5 or 6 studio albums and a few live albums with his own band. He wrote a song for A Star Is Born and his career has been on the rise for a few years now, while his old band DBT are just keeping their heads above water. Seen Jason about 8 times and tix go on sale for him tomorrow for his Richmond show in June.

Indeed, but he is unfortunately still way off the radar where I live. I just assumed he was mostly known in the ”americana” genre in the U.S.
I also guess the validity of the recommendations mostly depends on in which direction Murph has been aiming his radar [biggrin]
Of artists alive and active, Isbell is the one whose current music speaks the most to me.

By the way, I just found out in the other thread that Ryan Adams’ music is off the radar for a surprising number of people. There is so much great stuff out there, more easily available than ever, but it is still impossible to keep up with everything and everybody.

Jason Isbell may be the best songwriter of this century. Unreal how good that guy is. I think most of us on this forum are 'older.' I hope most younger folks know who he is. And he's not 'young' but he's a lot younger than me. He's doing pretty well, driving around in multiple buses, lol. And has the ultimate dream of mine... a good-looking woman (wife) who plays fiddle and sings. Also writes. That's the ultimate.

I think I own all of his cd's, Southeastern is the fave of all.

Southeaster is my fav of his. I think I saw him at least twice on that tour. I rarely listen to DBT anymore. Just tired of their songs about whatever tragedy they saw on the news recently. Jason is the real deal (singer, songwriter, guitar player, and slide player). He used to be a drunk. I think he's been sober for 5 years now. His wife is attractive, but I am not a fan of her music. I tried to listen to it, but it did nothing for me. She can sing and play the fiddle (violin for us regular folks).

Tickets go on sale for him in a few hour for his Richmond show. It was Richmond that did Jason in with DBT. It was where they got fed up with him and gave him the boot. I believe he sings about it on Southeastern.

I do not have his wife's records either. She's a good musician but does not compel me to buy.

I do not know the back story of him getting booted out by his band. He getting drunk or what? Is there a specific song on Southeastern where he sings about that?

Not sure how far off the radar Jace Everett is, but I really like his album Old New Borrowed Blues. I believe he did that one in a single take. He's pretty versatile in his style. You might recognize a couple of his songs. One of them was made popular by Scotty McCreery, and another is the theme song to True Blood.
Another recommendation is Shakey Graves. He uses alternate tunings and plays his best as a one man band (busker style).

I'll look to remember. I only know cause when I saw him in Richmond he told the story on stage of how big of an a-hole he was and how drunk he was that night. Not sure if he played the show that night or got the boot after, and then he played Cover Me Up.

Jason Isbell just got out of the studio producing Josh Ritter's new record with support from the 400 Unit. It won't be out for a couple of months but there is an advance single that sounds decidedly Isbelish, guitar solo included. I love some of Josh Ritter's stuff, this single has me intrigued to hear the rest.

Josh opened for him when I saw him in Mobile about a year ago or so. I am not a fan of his. He was okay, just not my thing.

Thanks for this. That album sounds great. I had no idea "Bad Things" was not a full band number on his album as opposed to the version for the TV show.

What a fun song to play, no matter which approach taken or guitar in hand.

Glad you like it! I'd be happy just doing covers from that album.

Oh, wow. That was really nice. And you saved the best for last, the Bramlett women- . . .
yeah, I definitely would not have found that on my own. Thx. And thx to Murph for the thread.
