Glen Hansard - -I think he sounds a bit like the "late" Cat Stevens

I think someone mentioned the movie he had in the shout box.....

yea didy, way to go!!!  I saw the movie "once" and loved it so much i got as much glen hansard, marketa irglovia, and the frames stuff I could get my hands on.  I also went to see his concert at the crystal ballroom a few months ago and it was spectacular.  When they were done playing, we all started chanting for more and he came back and played like 5 more songs, taking requests from the crowd, it was unbelieble.  He is a great guy, real down to earth.  I talked to him a bit after he almost hit me opening his tour bus door.  Anyways its great stuff, he has a great style, and the emotion he plays with is really inspiring.

I listened to the ones with links: Annie and the Hot Club, and Devil Doll.

I liked 'em both.  My daughter particularly liked Annie ...

New to me, although not to jazz fans, is Brad Mehldau. He is a fine pianist, and has a killer rhythm section he works with. I first heard him playing on a duo CD with Pat Metheny, but I've gone on to get three of his CD's off of Itunes.
Great jazz player, with some great takes on Beatles and other popular songs - he does a version of "Still Crazy After All These Years" by Paul Simon that is enough to bring you to tears.

Paul Brady-
While he's certainly not new, he's only new to me. I suppose the rest of the world has known about him for 30 years.
It's always a treat to discover new music.

Not really new, but Interpol just blows me away. I also like Uncle Earl, , Andrienne Young, and that whole Lacuna Coil/Nightwish thing...especially the lead singer for Lacuna Coil   Also Brandi Carlile...again, not really new per se, but relatively unknown, which is a shame. An amazing voice and a pretty good songwriter.

A friend tried to turn me on to Beirut (or some guy who calls himself Beruit???), but it sounded like bad mid-1930s Western European music. I listened several times....it actually got WORSE every time. crying

Yes, I am part of the 'older demographic', I have been listening to a lot of alternative rock stuff - sounds reminiscent of 70's acoustic rock - a mix of acoustic and electric guitars.  I like Incubus, Staind, One Republic...Got turne don to this stuff thru my 13 year old son. lol

Glen Hansard  +1 Good Stuff!  Can you guys make sense of Glen Hansard, "Once", "The Frames", "Swell Season", for me?  Are the latter two side projects of Hansard's?  I know that "Once" is a movie, did he write it, or did he write the music?  I heard the song "Swell Season/Swell Season" on their Myspace page and it was beautiful.  I'm really impressed.  Thanks for mentioning them, Didymus!

The Swell Season is Glenn's current project, which really consists of him and Marketa Irglova, (I don't know the exact spelling) They both wrote most of the music for the movie "once" specifically for the movie.  The Frames is the Band Glen has been playing in since he got started.  I've been getting really into there stuff recently, its pretty good, and they are considered to be one of the biggest Irish bands.  I also think that when I saw the swell season in concert that they had the members of the frames on the instrumentals, so maybe the swell season is marketa + the frames??  I'm not really sure, the frames and the swell season have really different sounds though, both equally impressive but deffinately different.  well, thats pretty much all I got, its all good stuff to listen to!

I don't know how NEW he is, but I was just introduced to Johnny A today and I'm thouroughly impressed!  I saw one of his signature Gibson's for sale at a local shop, and man, they're nice, and only $4000!   drool   I came home and checked out some of his stuff on YouTube.  There's just something really catchy and soulful, yet virtuosic (is that a word?) about what he's doing.  A real guitarist's guitarist for those who are into jazz, blues, and rock.  I don't recall hearing of him on this thread so I thought I'd share:
