    I think she's great, and was first introduced to her years ago through her duet with Ron Sexsmith, the YouTube video of which is noteworthy for Sexsmith's apparently inebriated state during the recording. Also for some of the comments, where those who haven't heard of him postulate that the name "Sexsmith" couldn't possibly be real.

    I first heard of Ron Sexmith via Rod Stewart's cover of Secret Heart then bought the album it came from.

    It's hard to limit myself to only three artists. But if I'd have to these would be my favorites (I'm also mentioning country, main instruments, genre)

    Michael Wollny (de, p, jazz)
    Nils Frahm (de, p/kb, electronica/ambient)
    Anna Ternheim (se, voc/gt, singer-songwriter)

    Here are some more that would also nicely fit (in alphabetical order):

    Ëlafur Arnalds (is, p/var., classical/electronica/ambient)
    Courtney Barnett (au, voc/gt, indie-rock)
    Ane Brun (no, voc/gt, singer-songwriter)
    Tina Dico (dk, voc/gt, singer-songwriter)
    Mathias Eick (no, tr/var., jazz)
    Ben Howard (uk, voc/gt, singer-songwriter)
    London Grammer (uk, voc/var., indie-pop)
    Ibrahim Maalouf (lb/fr, tr, jazz)
    Agnes Obel (dk, voc, singer-songwriter)
    Martin Tingvall (se, p, jazz)
    Nils WŘlker (de, tr, jazz)
    Just bought a couple of London Grammar albums. Amazing voice(Heather Reid) and instrumentation is sparse but very complimentary to Heather Reid's voice.

    Unfortunately they released only two full albums since they started their career ~10 years ago.

    One of the most interesting bands for me so far has been Idles. Fantastic live too.

    Max Richter's Recomposed: Vivaldi ľ The Four Seasons is probably one of may favourite discoveries over recent years.
