Chances are you have heard of most of the people near the bottom of that list. The ones at the top, Andrew and Sandra, are independent artists who are amazing. It constantly surprises me the wealth of talent you can find among musicians who have not been given big recording contracts. Why record companies pass over these people and pick up others is beyond me. But, fortunately for these guys, the internet is leveling the playing field. For more great independent musicians, check out The Square Peg Alliance.
