Indie Singer Songwriter
You don’t need me to tell you that these celebrated acts, Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding, Kurt Vile, Father John Misty and Aurora have mass appeal. Yeah, yeah…okay, I get it. But you know, there are some other folks (less likely to show up on mainstream radio) who have a similar indie singer songwriter vibe. And we think you’d massively benefit from checking them out for yourself.
What follows is a somewhat haphazard, eminently arguable, and entirely non-definitive list of some lesser-known artists that could also tickle your eardrums.
A little known fact: at no other time in history have we had such a vast variety of music at our fingertips as we do today; and yet the majority of us settle for being spoon fed mainstream morsels from familiar names (and as usual, the powerful corporations behind them).
Indie music is, for the many artists who pour their heart and souls into their work, establishing deep connections with their fans. These artists don’t play for the audience and financial gain alone. They create music because they must.
Admittedly, it’s hard to know exactly where to fish in the vast digital seas of music.
But it can be overwhelming for casual listeners who don’t know which artists, albums or songs to investigate beyond the random suggestions make for them via analytics and algorithms.It’s eminently worth the effort, however.
That’s why we have taken the liberty to curate a custom indie singer songwriter playlist for indie, alternative and true music fans, featuring 22 songs from our ever evolving catalogue that could have reasonably appeared on a Spotify playlist alongside Jake Bugg, Jason Mraz and James Blake.
We invite you to poke around, shuffle through and experience some of the best tunes of the year that were definitely not performed on any award shows:
This indie singer songwriter playlist is your guide to artists who remain true to their craft while stirring our deepest emotions. If your playlists are in need of a refresh, check out these lesser-known great indie singer songwriter artists.
