Please visit The Deli's full web charts organized by genre and region.
Anybody who writes songs is of course a songwriter, whether she plays in a folk or a metal band. In this category though we are referring to those artists who present themselves as solo performers (or accompanied by a band) and play music which finds inspiration in the tradition of folk giants like Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell, but also in the poppier vein of artists like Elton John and Suzanne Vega. And since most modern songwriters dwell between folk and pop, we added to this category also artists who belong to a genre we call "Rootsy Pop" - i.e. more uptempo acts who present themselves as a band rather than solo.
