Re: Favorite artists that aren't well known

Freelance Whales. Their music is quite different, not exactly spiritual or Celtic, but similar.
I know they're big in Ireland, but Celtic Thunder isn't well known here in America. Heavenly voices all across the board and they put on a great show.
There's also Fort Minor, Charlene Kaye, and Jim and the Povolos.

If you like rap and people like Lupe Fiasco, immortal technique, and Tupac, listen to Lowkey! He's a british rapper, and he is amazing!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Favorite artists that aren't well known

There are also a lot of really good musicians who aren't famous at all and put up videos on youtube of their original songs or covering songs that already exist. Sometimes I find myself thinking, why are they not famous?! My favourite musician on youtube right now is a girl called Jordin Baas (her account is jkjordinkid) and her songs are absolutely AMAZING.

I also love Jayme Dee (her acoustic cover of "Toxic" is beautiful), Christina Grimmie and Tiffany Alvord.

Re: Favorite artists that aren't well known

Johnny Hollow. It makes me sad when an artist is so underground that one can't order their cds from a company in one's own country.
Voltaire is a bit more commonly known, still I think there are relatively few who heard of him.
Same goes for Sopor Aeternus.
Then I also like Sisters Of Mercy, who seem to be completely forgotten by now. I wasn't even born when they were the most active, so I can't know if they were well-known even back then.

Re: Favorite artists that aren't well known

HOW could I forget The Screaming Females??? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soTg-Q20du4

The girl, Marissa Paternoster, is particularly great. AMAZING guitar shredder. They're SICK live. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTS0y6KLVNc

It isn't the kind of music I usually like, but I'm addicted to them right now

I think most rock fans over the age of 30 know The Sisters Of Mercy I'm under 30 but got into them through my dad (they had a good following back in the day), and they're coming to Australia this month! Great band.

Well I haven't talked to many who do... But it feels better to hear that because what they really deserve is much much much more attention than most pop stars today, in my opinion

Nice to meet a fellow Sisters Of Mercy fan

Re: Favorite artists that aren't well known

I don't know if this band is that widely known or not, since it has a lot of clips on YouTube, but whatever on Earth can be found on YouTube, and i have never heard their songs broadcasted on the radio or TV... I am speaking about Owl City, I really love their songs and the calm inspiring atmosphere they create.

Re: Favorite artists that aren't well known

I recently found out about a Chicago band called I Fight Dragons. They're awesome. They experiment with chiptunes and remind me a little bit of Weezer or Ozma. Geeks should check them out; definitely.

Re: Favorite artists that aren't well known

Owl City- Lots of people know them, but they probably only know one of their songs, but he has 3 albums.
Panic! At The Disco-Very versatile, they have interpretive jazz, folk, rock, punk rock, lullaby, and pop.
NeverShoutNever-Really cool, another one man band, but not very well known, since he started out in Joplin, Missouri.

Re: Favorite artists that aren't well known

Hurts, I have no idea if they're more popular then I think they are, but I love them! Amazing music! I just wish my friends actually knew who they were.

Les Friction, just discovered them recently.

Re: Favorite artists that aren't well known

Fair To Midland

They're an artsy/progressive rock/metal band from Texas. They have weird names to their songs like Dance of the Manatee, Tall Tales taste like sour grapes. Also they have a song called, the Wife, the Kids, and the White Picket fence.

The lead singer Darroh has an unbelievable vocal range, and they're known for their outlandish stage antics (jumping from amps and hanging up-side-down from the ceiling while singing).

Re: Favorite artists that aren't well known

Most of these are pretty intense metal-genre bands, so if you're not into that you might not want to bother looking into them, but I think they're great and deserve more attention than they get:

(listed alphabetically, not by preference)

Becoming the Archetype
Between the Buried and Me
Divine Heresy
Fleshgod Apocalypse
Guthrie Govan
Manntis
Marc Rizzo
The Aristocrats
