+1 for John Prine. I've got all his music and he is a great story teller

He keeps his Christmas tree up all year long

"It was Christmas in prison and the food was real good
We had turkey and pistols carved out of wood"

Prine's lyrics really stick with you. Not only is he a great storyteller, but a master of hyperbole.  :thumb:

"There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes"

Neil Young
Jackson Browne

Any list would have to include those, along with "The Boss" aka Bruce Springsteen

Another gem from Sound Liaison, this recording is Carmen Gomes' take on Harry Belafonte's Belafonte Sings the Blues.
Recorded in DXD, this recording is available in any high Rez flavor you prefer. The sound is killer. Audiostream.com

Ray Davies
John Hiatt
Micheal Stipes
Hector Rosa
Ian Anderson
Thanks everyone for some great singers so far. Glad to see this subject come back to life.

On review of the artists listed here am surprised no one has mentioned Steve Goodman as yet. One of several folk artists of the Chicago area in the late '60s early '70s, along with John Prine. If you aren't familiar with his music, and enjoy John's songs, check out Steve. For those unaware he wrote "City of New Orleans", the best know recording of which was by Arlo Guthrie, another stellar singer/song writer/storyteller.
