"to my listening ears"

Joseph Arthur - up until a few weeks ago I thought this guy was from the "other side of the pond." He has a sound that is somewhere between Damien Rice and David Gray (which explains my confusion). He is actually from Akron, OH (only a couple hours from here). I would recommend his previous work as well.

Evermore - is the three Hume Brothers with rock star longish hair (I immediately thought of Hanson, and was a little scared). They are from New Zealand and you can hear the influence of U2, Coldplay, Keane, Smashing Pumpkins, and The Cranberries (a relatively eclectic combination). It's poppy and melodic, and on TV (what else is new?).
