I like all three you've listed, here are a couple that while not "new" they are talented and perhaps a little below the radar

Jim Cole 
Mark Ruffalo
Pat Donohue
Mike Dowling
Mike Cross
Peter Dobson (a So. Calif. Acoustic/Electric Blues player out of Laguna)
Doug MacLeod (a So. Calif Acoustic Blues player out of L.A.)

My wife says I can buy, sell swap guitars and cars as much as I want...
as long as I don't start swapping wives... sounds like a good deal to me.

We have a local artist who reminds me favorably of John Denver. Here is a link to a sample song on YouTube from Derek Aramburu.

And here is another one although the lighting and sound balance aren't as good.

My next-door neighbor plays in a John Denver Tribute band all over the world - they play with symphony orchestras as well as on cruise ships.  The guy is scary good at knocking off John Denver tunes.  Diane (my neighbor) is the flautist in the band.

He even kind of looks like him.
