Today is International Strange Music Day, a day when people are encouraged to listen to types of music they have never experienced before. I thought it would be an excellent opportunity to share a brief list of my favorite lesser-known musical artists for you to check out. Without further ado, here are my recommendations, sorted by genre:





Jam Bands


Progressive Rock


It was fairly difficult to make this list, because a lot of the music I listen to can fit into multiple categories. At any rate, I hope you enjoy the suggestions. If you have any suggestions for me, please feel free to use one of the contact options at the bottom of this page to send them over my way!
