METALHEADS! who are your favorite non metal artists?

I’m looking for new music. Feel free to tell me your favorite metal band too, but not without some non metal. I need new music that doesn’t suck.

A few of my favorite non metal artists are:

Adele (wtf this lady is INCREDIBLE)
R. E. M
The Jesus Christ superstar soundtrack (lol)
Big K. R. I. T
Queen (and tons of classic rock besides them)
Phantogram (I really love them, please more like this?)
Nujabes (nice relaxing music, need more!)
Guthrie Govan (dudes a god on guitar more like this? Besides bucket head I know him already cmon bruh lol)
Sia (from the chandel-edoouu!)
Tony Scott (jazz, need more awesome jazz)

Yea I’m lacking in non metal stuff. I’m interested in classical music too but don’t know much about it.

I’m not into core bands, sorry folks don’t waste your time. I just don’t like them!
