Bob Dylan.

And then there's...

Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Gordon Lightfoot, Willie Nelson, and Al Stewart.

Joni Mitchell is pretty great, but not exactly on my wavelength, I suppose.

Loreena McKennitt and Enya are superb at what they do.

Van Morrison has done some great stuff.

Tanita Tikaram wrote a bunch of songs that don't sound like anyone but her. I still can't figure out how she came up with those lyrics.

That should do for now.
