Under-appreciated, but not by me
Wrote this in answer to a ND friend’s inquery, but worth sharing perhaps:
Top three current singer-songwriters I don’t think get their due: A.A. Bondy, who might top the list; soulful, beautiful Antje Duvekot; and master guitarist with a keen, original wit, Peter Mulvey. Bob Schneider is another one who shoots quiet arrows to the heart, if I get a bonus pick.
I can’t get enough of Todd Snider or Hayes Carll either, but they are thankfully not under-appreciated these days! Outside the circle of Americana, I’d add Xavier Rudd from New Zealand for his earthy honesty…he’s getting pretty known too.
Oh, and how could I leave out Ramsay Midwood, a very recent discovery thanks to two great reviews here on ND – both worth reading for their razor-sharp humor and insight, search ’em out.
