I've been on a tear lately listening to these guys. Even at work I'm hardly ever without headphones and my iPod. If you like music that has lyrics you can understand and that make sense, and is played with care and skill take a listen to a few of these guys and gals (in no particular order):

Jeffrey Foucault
Volebeats
Jimmy LaFave
The Get-Rites
Houston Marchman
Fred Eaglesmith
Gurf Morlix
Otis Gibbs
Kasey Chambers
Ray Bonneville
Robin Ella
Romi Mayes
Ridley Bent
Ray Wylie Hubbard
Rachel Harrington
Sam Baker
Slaid Cleaves
Sunny Sweeney
Amy Ferris
Rodrigo Y Gabriela
Kelly Willis
Eilen Jewell
Blaze Foley

I could go on, but that's enough for now.

Some of these guys have been around for a long time. A couple used to be (maybe still are) on an independent Austin, TX label. The few that I know do provide some good tunes. Thanks for sharing because I haven't thought of these people in a long time.

When I am really really sleepy I watch the music video B.O.B - full screen - full volume .. that usually wakes me up.

But thanks for the list, I'm gonna search for them - I need more tunes. Gonna put them all in a special folder: Waking up Songs.
