It's no secret that this forum and others like it are made up of an older demographic, so there's a lot of talk about older artists and their works classic or recent, which is great but I want to know what new artists acoustic guitar players are listening to. No, the artist doesn't have to be acoustic but they do have to be somewhat new to the music scene (like this century).

Fionn Regan, who has been discussed recently, is a great singer-songwriter who doesn't sound like another clone of the indie/emo/rock music scene. He has tight arrangements which remind me of Nick Drake and sometimes early Dylan. Some of the guitar playing is on the verge of being country blues or ragtime.

The other artist I've been listening to is Jolie Holland, she's very traditional sounding. She is an absolute master songwriter. I love her sound; the band sounds classic Nashville, and she's got a great vocal delivery. and how cool is that guitar?

HOW NEW????

As of a few months ago I started listening to Feist after seeing her perform on a Jimmy Kimmel show rerun.
 
Last year I came across Larrivee wielding Raul Midon.

In the bargain bins at the local used CD shop I found Chris Cortez,s "Hold It Right There" CD (preview on AMAZON and several used copies going for a penny -don't delay).  Formerly of New Orleans (before Katrina), great swing jazz playing and singing.

From Brazil Carol Saboya (w/Nelson Faria) doing Jobim, the Janelas Abertas CD.

By the way I'm part of the older crowd at 52.

OOPS show could I forget one of my current new favorites.... the very versatile Annie Sellick, particularly the Stardust on My Sleeve and I'll Remember April (w/Joey Defrancesco) CD's. For fun listening go to YOUTUBE ... http://www.myspace.com/annieandthehotclub and listen to Chickadee and Cockadoodledoo, by her Annie and the Hot Club project .

From a couple of years ago...   Lavay Smith and her Red Hot Skillet Lickers (40's Jazz done in a jump band arranmgement. For great fun Devil Doll ( http://www.myspace.com/devildoll ) best described as a kind of Punk Noir Jazz chanteusse. Devil Doll is like a blend of Lavay Smith with Pearl Harbour and the Explosions (my favorite punk band from the San Francisco 70's punk scene).

Gotta say I have been listening to Fretkillr and Troubleclef a lot lately too.

I've got some newer stuff I really enjoy.  I particularly like Damien Rice, Iron & Wine and, while I know some are not big fans, John Mayer.

Actually, John Mayer put out an acoustic EP called the Village Sessions.  It contains 6 actouatic versions of songs from his latest album Continuum.  Excellent stuff.

I've been into Jolie Holland for a while now.  Jeremy, check out her brief stint with The Be Good Tanyas on their record 'Blue Horse'.  That's one of the best records I own. 

I've been getting into Neko Case for a while. Really good stuff. 

Simon Mayor is new to me and I've been listening to him like mad.

On the Rock and Roll front, someone just gave me a CD by a band called Siversun Pickups.  I like it.

Also enjoying iron and wine, as well as neko case.  Lately I have been listening to a lot of alt.country type music.  Dave Alvin is a new big favorite of mine, along with peter case.  And on the rock n roll front, drive by truckers really know how to lay down that full classic les paul/marshall stck sound in the way I like to hear it.  However, the list is ultimately endless, as there is really a lot of great music out there if one only knows where to look.

Ralph Roddenbery is rapidly becoming one of my new favorites, and he plays a Larrivee.

While she's not a guitar player, there's a young woman out of the Pacific Northwest Sara Gazarek who is a Jazz singer
who has a beautiful voice, small combo, three instrumentalists and her vocals.
I would'nt consider myself a true Jazz fan, bust she is just wonderfull

I saw Fiona Buoys(sp) last year at the James River Blues Fest and she is a great singer, and performer.  She is Australian, and apparently spends time in the US touring every year.  She is a good acoustic guitar player also.

One (relatively) new act that intrigues me is Eastmountainsouth, which my wife introduced me to. I don't know much about them as yet, but they remind me a lot of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. My wife is going to buy me (and when she says me, she means her) a CD for Christmas

I've got their self-titled record.  Really good stuff, but that's all I have by them.  I particularly like their version of Stephen Foster's Hard Times Come Again No More.

I am really liking "A fine Frenzy" for some reason.. Mainly the ache in her voice. I wish she played the guitar

Leslie Feist and Surfjan Stevens seem to be the only acts that have gotten my sustained attention so far.

Creature, I heard a very interesting show on WNYC's "Spinning on Air" last month (one of my long time fave radio shows) with Surfjan Stevens. I think you might find it interesting.

It's different from his usual pop/rock music.

  After seeing Old Crow Medicine Show live about a month ago, I have been listening to them, but my favorite new
  artist would be Tift Merritt from North Carolina.
  She is pretty, a very nice person, extremely talented, and boy can this girl sing. If you ever get a chance to see her live,   please do so. You will not be disappointed.
  She plays both electric and acoustic. The two times that I have seen her she was solo and acoustic only, but she does
  play the piano also. Her main axe is a 1963 or 1965 J series Gibson and it sounds great.
  She has a couple of albums out one is called Tambourine which I believe was nominated for a Grammy and the other
  is Bramble Rose.
  Why this girl is not a major star is beyond me. The only reason I can think of is she doesn't fit Nashville's requirements
  for a star for some reason. Probably too good!!!
  Here's the link to her website:
