Now I know what most of you will think when you see this last installment: “What a cop out!” Let me explain myself. I selected the “Top 10″ based on my own personal preferences and a desire to see many different genres and diverse backgrounds represented. I’ve had to respect the wishes of certain musicians by not featuring them. Also, there are of course time and space constraints. The musicians I’ve featured are by no means the only LDS musicians in this world, and I would be remiss if I didn’t mention some more artists. Therefore, my last installment will be a few artists that didn’t make the full list, but that I think are still worth listening to.
The Sweater Friends
Jake and Allyson were just very good friends who decided to start performing together. Soon they were writing upbeat, fun acoustic songs that touch on quite deep topics (like self esteem and illegal immigration) without taking themselves too seriously. The Sweater Friends have played shows all over Utah, and are currently working on a concept album called The Ghost and the Guest that they’ve been blogging about. It’s just fun music. You can check out their interview on Linescratchers or their website and blog.
