    Josh Ritter
    Damien Rice
    Bob Dylan
    Johnny Cash
    Sufjan Stevens

    this would be my top five I guess

    although I also enjoy Jose Gonzales, Elliot Smith, Jens Lekman, ...

    without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines. Frank Zappa

    I'm no expert in singer-songwriter knowledge, so my listening repertoir is very limited.

    Bob Dylan
    Jeff Buckley
    Rufus Wainwright
    Terry Scott Taylor

    I used to like David Bowie, but not so much anymore. I probably just need to hear something beyond Space Oddity....

  • At the top of my head, here goes:

    Josh Rouse
    Sufjan Stevens
    Jeff Buckley
    Rufus Wainwright
    Jens Lekman
    Elliot Smith
    Fiona Apple
    Feist
    Ron Sexsmith
    Badly Drawn Boy

    and lots more that I'm probably forgetting right now..

  • John Hiatt
    Johnny Cash
    Bob Dylan
    Bruce Springsteen
    Neil Young
    Ed Harcourt
    Ryan Adams
    Bright Eyes
    Ani Difranco
    Elliott Smith

    That's just some of them.

    The more I show the way I feel
    The less I find you give a damn
    The more I get to know
    The less I find that I understand
  • My all time favorite as of lately is Trevor Hall. He is quite incredible.

    I think Vic Chesnutt and Will Oldham are pretty incredible in terms of singer-songwriters. I love Dylan, Waits, Cohen etc., but I just thought I'd mention those two. Oh yeah, and Aimee Mann...

    Finley Quaye
    Sarah Blasko
    Elvis Costello
    Frank Black
