Of the newer artists, I like Adele and James Bay. I tend to like the singer-songwriter style artists. I especially like the Adele album 21, and James Bay album, Chaos and Calm.
A while back, I found an album on iTunes, that popped up because of my interest in groups like Deep Purple and Rainbow. To my surprise, the album was Voices by J.R. Blackmore (son of Ritchie and his first wife). I bought it and was not disappointed. The apple didn't fall far from the tree, in his case! He lives in Germany and is better known in Europe than here.
From time to time I hear new songs that I like by different artists and will buy the singles.
