Tom Waits.

Imagine Dragons, my current "band of the moment".

They're not all that original when it comes to lyrics, but their sound is quite diversified and pleasant.

 

Sure, they do alternative indie rock, yet I feel they manage to go above the standard fare.

M.I.A. - original and has an impact on directions taken in the mainstream. I don't know if any other act has quite that impact.

Lady Gaga has most easily had the biggest impact on the direction of mainstream music in recent years.

Katy Perry is not actually a song writer; other people do her music for her (and are copying existing pop styles that are big at the moment), she just performs.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Regina Spektor.  She does things her way, not following the typical "rules" and her sound is quite awesome!

I'll go with Steven Wilson, be it solo, with Porcupine Tree, with Storm Corrosion or with Opeth.



K'Naan! :D



Could I trouble you for some maple syrup to go with the plate of roffles you just served up?
