The Songs of Zion
I've mentioned Doug Erekson before, not only because he's been a good friend for many, many years, but also because I've always been impressed with his music, even when it's not targeted to me or my tastes.
So, why mention him again? Two reasons: One, he recently put out a new CD, of original Christian kid's tunes, and Two, his tunes are now more immediately accessible on the web than before. So, you can go check them out.
His sound runs from real, down-home country, through bluegrass, to retro acoustic rock. It kinda depends on the project he's working on at the moment. My personal favorites on this list are his versions of "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" (known in Mo' circles as "Israel, Israel, God is Calling", and "I Know that My Redeemer Lives". His version of "Give, Said the Little Stream" is a lot of fun, too.
And maybe if enough people pester him about it, we'll get him to put "The Day Dawn is Breaking" on the page, too. Or just go buy "Backporch Believer".
