Im looking for some new Artists... (Acoustic Artists preferably)

Ok so I listen to bands along the lines of Owen, Elliott Smith, John Mayer, Paul Michel, Bright Eyes, Dave Matthews, Ghosts And Vodka, Red House Painters, and sometimes Dashboard Confessional etc. when I want to just kick back to some nice acoustic material. But lately Iv been wondering if anybody could give me some new artists (preferably solo artists) that I might be interested in.

So yeah if anyone could list some suggestions Id very much appreiciate it. Thanks.

Yeah Jack Johnson is decent and his tunes are catchy and nice to listen to but I dont think I could listen to him for that long. He's good but I believe he's overrated.

Bernard Fanning or Pete Murray perhaps...
Some John Butler Trio might do the trick too.

edit: I really like this guy:
