Basically, music/artist in the likes of,

~Adrianna Evans
~Stevie Wonder
~Indian Arie etc. just to name a few
~Jazz Musicians
~etc. just to name a few.

MOST of the music I like doesn't get any air play on broadcast radio, I listen to much of this music on my internet radio. I'm talking about underground music, I just need to start buying the albums.

What do you like listening to and which artist/musicians best fit in this category?

Thanks in advanced.

India.Arie has this category on lock -- especially her *Voyage to India * CD...If you like the artists you mentioned, you would love Cree Summer -- her only CD *Street Fairie* is inspirational to say the least. Her duet with Lenny Kravitz, *Mean Sleep* is too awesome for mere words. Definitely look her up!

and definitely check out Meshell Ndegeocello's "Comfort Woman"... It's remarkable

ETA: and Amel Larrieux's "Bravebird" and if you don't have her 1st CD, it's a MUST buy too.
