My absolute favorite artist is not very known but to me a lot better then the mainstream artists out there. His name is Beardyman and he has a live show where he improvises whatever the audiance suggests. Here are some examples:
Coherence (Live improv with other artists)
His latest liveshow :
Some of these artists are just so creative immogen heap for example invented her own gloves so she could play music on the air.
So who is your personal favorite and why?

My top 3 favorite "lesser known artists" are...
Hot Water Music. Genre: Rock
They aren't completely obscure, but they definitely aren't too popular. I've seen them live before and they were great.
"Drag My Body"
Glassjaw. Genre: Post hardcore, hard rock, maybe some metal vibes too
They also have some of a fanbase like Hot Water Music, but they don't have many. They have really quite a unique style I think. They are friggin amazing live too-- like the whole crowd goes crazy when they start up.
Rival Schools. Genre: Rock with punk influence, but maybe a little more chill
I actually don't know much about this band but learned about them from a fellow GAGer who posted the album one time on here. They are pretty obscure as far as I can tell.
Their album: United by Fate
