    If you like Norah Jones you may like Po' Girl. These gals are high on my not so short list of favorites. Check out the streams on the ALBUM area of thier website. Great stuff.

    Hopefully, you already have some familiarity with Canadian bands like Limblifter, See Spot Run, and Static In Stereo. If not, you're in an excellent position to pick them up cheap, and at a local store to boot!

    Matt Good is a tough act to follow, in my book. See what you think of Paloalto and The Sheila Divine.

    Seriously, besides the previously mentioned artists, I have been digging Nickelcreek. They're "modern" bluegrass and produced by Alison Krauss.

    I'll throw another vote in for Fiona Apple.
    Also if you like dave matthews you might want to check out the Blue Man Groups current album "The Complex" it features a song with Dave singing lead vocal. And aside from that it's a fantastic album anyway.

    copied from a similar thread

    radiohead
    one of my all-time faves. if you like coldplay, you'll almost certainly like them. call these guys....ummm...i dunno....experimental/alt/rock? unlike many groups, they have really shifted their sound. their early stuff is more rocky, their latest stuff more electronicky

    beth orton
    okay, she may be my all time fave singer. her vocals are so awesome and her sound is truly unique. she is really "big" in the industry, very well known. she has a sultry/raspy/seductive voice. all her albums are worthwhile - try "central reservation" or "trailer park".

    bjork
    you may not like her music, but you gotta love her creativity. formerly of the sugarcubes, she has truly broken out on her own. her vocal stylings can sometimes grate your spine, but at the same time, she is just too damn irresistable. go for the greatest hits - which are songs that were chosen by her fans

    concrete blond
    featuring the vocal stylings of johnette napolitano - she presents a harder-edged sound than many female vocals...and the band can defintely back her up. their greatest hits album (titled "recollection") is a must-have.

    delerium
    in the same style as enigma. very electronic. if you like *that* sound, then this is a band for you. sweeping and organic, yet infused with a modern beat. typically they have recognizable names do the singing - including people like sara mac, sinead o'connor, poe, etc. their breakout album is "karma", but just about any of their stuff will do. i really like their new album too...can't remember what it's called.

    diana krall
    if jazz and standards are your thing, then her album "live in paris" is a must-have. premium quality recording only helps. i've probably listened to this album more then any other album while i'm at work. it skips and be-bops along quite nicely.

    morcheeba
    more electronic stuff. hard to define...sort of wordly i guess would be accurate. wonderful sweeping textures and a lovely voice by their lead singer. best-of is called "parts of the process", but "big calm" is also a great choice.

    nickel creek
    i guess folk would be a good term for these guys? i'm not a huge fan, but i like them enough that i think you should give them a try. i know there are other fans here at htf.

    saint etienne
    another one of my all-time faves bands. the lead singer's voice is simply....heavenly. these guys run the gamut: uptempo dance, 70's infused mono, haunting soundscapes, etc. "smash the system" is their best of, and every song on it is great. otherwise, give their first (?) album "foxbase alpha" a try.

    wilco
    i just recently got into these guys and i love em. if you're tired of electronic, rap, dance, or anything that involves uber-processed mixes, then these guys are just right. alt-country at it's best. i love listening to these guys when i'm burned out. the only albums i have from them are "being there" and "yankee hotel foxtrot". i would have no problem recommending either one...i'll give a slight nod to being there.

    Gov't Mule - I would suggest The Deep End Vol. 1, it is pure Rock & Roll.

    The White Stripes

    Ted's suggestion of Bjork is a good one. You could start with Debut.

    If you want to hear something fresh, grab a copy of the Tiger Lillies' soundtrack record "Shockheaded Peter: A Junk Opera" or their 2003 collaboration with Kronos Quartet, "The Gorey End."

    If you like female artists in the Sarah McLachlan/Tori Amos/Kate Bush mold, and like supporting truly independent* musicians, try Happy Rhodes.

    Happy Rhodes samples (she knows I share her music)


    * as in no record company whatsoever. Music is her life. Marketing, promotion, playing the game it takes to reach a very large audience isn't, which I deeply respect.
