|If listening to 1 and/or 2 doesn't bring a tear to your eye, then no music will|

|Nice profile picture. Just bought that album, but they did a good job of hiding the fact that it was DVD audio only, so I can't listen to it in any CD players, such as the one in my car, which is why I bought it really.... whatever.|
As for recs...
Chris Isaak - Forever Blue
Release the Sunbird - Come Back to Us
Jack Anthony - Cue the Clouds
|@riff, the guy living next to me at Uni got pissed off cos I always play hardcore music way to loud|

Can't listen to punk quietly, its not possible
|Owen- At Home With Owen|
|Mountain goats |
|william fitzsimmons- Until When We Are Ghosts|
|Bruce Cockburn - very underrated only really known in Canada. Has some great albums and some aite ones, his first 10 years are folky, then the next he becomes all 80's and shiiet ( i think it was in the 80's or sum tin) and from the 90's till now it's been a mix of it all i guess? but many nonetheless. Great great guitar player, one of my favs.|

|dont listen to lucasjcockcroft generally hes a faggot and listens to terrible music|
|oh and owen is a great choice, or even just american football|
|UhhKris - Except Into It. Over It.'s Evan Weiss is probably one of the best pop-punk writers out today.|
And like 3 people have mentioned, Owen is an amazing songwriter. It's not abstract like Justin Vernon's writing, but there is something about the way Kinsella explains stories through his songs that make him so brilliant. I recommend his whole discography.. I actually just got really into the song Bed Abuse today.
I'm surprised Bright Eyes isn't on this list.. I feel like it would fit in really nicely. I think the more I start to really listen to his songs and read his lyrics I appreciate it in a whole other level. But as brilliant/weird as his songwriting is, I can't seem to relate to a lot of it, and in my biggest reason for loving music is being able to relate to it.
Which comes to my final and best recommendation: Kevin Devine. He is a brilliant wordsmith, and every line is carefully crafted so well. You can hear a lot of Elliott Smith and Bright Eyes influences, which is perfect for what you're looking for. I'm not sure how to recommend the albums though, I feel like everyone has different opinions on them. My top 3 album recs is
Put Your Ghosts to Rest
Split the Country, Split the Streets
but my favorite album from him is Make the Clocks Move
**also I'm on adderall so I felt like writing all this. Happy listening!
