Music Suggestions

I know there are a lot of music threads on here but they are are usually “What you listen to at the gym”. I am looking for some opinions on music I SHOULD be listening to or your favorite music. I listen to music from all genres…well all but a few but, being young a lot of all bands or singers I have never heard of.

So, any opinions on good artists or songs are welcomed, all but certain bands, groups whatever they are like Mastadon I can’t listen to that music. Sure the drumming and guitar are o.k but the damn voices stress me out I can’t understand a damn thing the say.

Here is a sample of music I listen to:

The Roots
Nas
Jay-z
Lupe Fiasco
Kanye
Joss Stone
Sam Cooke
Mos Def
Saliva
Clutch
Seether
Stevie Ray
Kenny Wayne Sheppard
Shooter Jennings
Robert E. Keene
Lefty Frizzell
Ryan Bingham
Michael Buble
Amos Lee (Check Him Out)
