Well, this is harder than it would have been a few years ago…I just haven’t been spending money on music in, oh, forever. In high school or college I would have said Switchfoot, but then they got famous and I stopped listening to them. I still really like their old stuff, and Jon Foreman’s indie stuff is really good. “Your Love is Strong” has been pretty meaningful to me in more recent times. Also Jennifer Knapp, who has thrilled my little heart with her return to writing & recording; “Martyrs and Thieves” is one of my all-time favorite songs. Kendall Payne, Lifehouse, The Normals, Sara Groves, and Sandra McCracken all have stuff that I listen to when I am discouraged or depressed.
