    Anything acoustic based, really. Instrumental, with vocals, whatever.
    Solo acoustic would be great.
    Something darker sounding would be cool, too (but don't keep it limited to that).

    Thanks in advance, boyos!

    Phil Keaggy is an animal on acoustic. Arlen Roth has an all acoustic release. I dig America and the Eagles too for acoustic.

    Sondre Lerche. Iron & Wine. Damian Rice.

    There are also a few cuts on
    The Helio Sequence's new record
    that are stellar (that whole record, really)-
    "Keep Your Eyes Ahead".

    Good luck.

    I would echo Bruce Cockburn and Michael Hedges. Two of my all time favs.

    I just discovered Andrew Bird pretty recently and now I love him. Check out his album "The Mysterious Production of Eggs."

    2 of my favs are the Brothers of a Feather cd from Chris and Rich Robinson from the Black Crowes and the first Patty Griffin cd Living with Ghosts. Also any Ani DiFranco will always have a lot of interesting acoustic. Warren Haynes Lone EP and his Live at Bonnaroo cd.

    Nels Cline's new cd "Coward" has been spinning nonstop in my player since last week.... Very dark in places... very light in others...not at all "lite" but totally heavy and all acoustic. It will challenge and reward you!

    Nels is such a powerful musician... I'm just in awe of his music lately. Get his trio discs, too... they have some awesome acoustics cuts on them as well. His trio is called the "Nels Cline Singers" but they are all instrumental... killer drums from Scott Amendola!!!

    John Prine is always awesome.

    I like to listen to some good flatpickers at times also, Bryan Sutton, Russ Barenberg and Tony Rice are pretty much top of the heap.

    Acoustic blues - Mississippi John Hurt is one of my favorites.

    Stephen Stills has some really good acoustic work out there and Neil Young of course.
