For me, it's Tony Dekker. He sings for the band Great Lake Swimmers, but he has put out two solo albums over the past couple of years which were just amazing, one called Prayer for the Woods, and another which is an album of covers to celebrate 10 years of music being sold at Zunior.com. Both albums were really solid, peaceful and a dream to listen to.
Hmmm. No. I don't think i have a favourite - I can think of several I really like straight off the top of my head and couldn't choose just one!
Mostly they are English folk singers but I also have a soft spot for Regina Spektor. We saw her in concert once before she was famous and she was totally bonkers! Great gig :)
I love some great local Aussie Singer/Songwriters, Cathy Dobson, Nia Robertson, Twyce Daily, Chris Newman. Alan Caswell and many many more. We are so lucky to have so many great talented Singer/Songwriters!
