Underrated acoustic musicians

If you're like me and you're fed up of hearing the same old auto-tuned crap on the radio and dominating the charts then you should enjoy something a little different. I'm going to talk about a couple of my favourite underrated musicians.

Charlie Simpson
Charlie was the lead singer of the band Busted, you might have heard of them their song 'Year 3000' or 'That's what I go to school for'. Busted broke up because Charlie wanted to pursue a career in rock music. He then joined a band called Fightstar, although these are my favourite band I'm not going to talk about these, they announced the band's going on hiatus for 2010-2011 for Charlie to do some solo stuff. Charlie's first official album is out on the 15th of August! Here's a video of his newest single off the new album.
You can preorder the album here
Graham Stookey
Graham is an 18 year old guy that started a youtube channel in hope that someone would like his stuff and he'd get a record deal. He recently released an EP with four songs on it, these four songs are not on his youtube channel. The one song is a cover of  'Jonah', this is the song that really drew the majority of his viewers to his channel. Here's the video;

You can buy his album here

  3. I'd love to see Graham Stookey do that on an electric guitar where those notes can really be heard well :) That's some skill to do it on acoustic like that though
