Some of these artists you might know, but I suspect many of them you don't. Most of them make their music freely available either on Last.fm or on their own websites (note to our featured artists: if you'd like to post a URL to your website as a comment to this journal, please feel free!).
I truly believe that these are among to most talented independent musicians in the world. Please take some time to listen to their music, and let us know which you liked best!
