And if you need reference points*, we’ve got:
“Right Hand on My Heart” The Whigs …sounds like… Springsteen! “Ghosts of Goodbye” Ford Turrell …sounds like… Ryan Adams! “Bye Bye Bye” Plants and Animals …sounds like… Arcade Fire! Or Ravens & Chimes! “I Got a Thing for You” Jim Bianco …sounds like… Joe Cocker! Or Tom Waits! “Old Song” AM …sounds like… Josh Rouse! “Nobody Knows” Keaton Simons …sounds SASSY like… Jason Mraz! “Open Fire” Sara Mac Band …sounds like… The Dixie Chicks! “Standing Bird” Love Psychedelico …sounds A BIT like… The Dixie Chicks as well! “Jessie Jane” The Whipsaws …sounds like… Lynyrd Skynrd!
* Note that …sounds like… is a very loose term that may mean actually SOUNDS LIKE or may mean rather mean “reminds me (and no one else) of”.
