Hey there.
I'm a HUGE fan of indie/folk music. I enjoy Roy LaMontagne, Mimicking Birds, Mumford and Sons, Alexi Murdoch, etc.
But I'm also a big Christian music fan. I ADORE Switchfoot, and also enjoy Starfield, Tenth Ave. North, and the City Harmonic.

So naturally, I'd LOVE to find Indie/folk Christian bands. I've been looking around at different sites and have found Future of Forestry, Sara Groves, and Josh Garrels. I quite like them all and would be interested in filling up my iPod with more of this stuff. Any other input you may have is welcome!

Thanks and God bless!

Hey, I love indie music to! Not sure what folk is, but I'd check at indievisionmusic.com they feature a lot of indie bands, and you can find a lot of free music there aswell.

When people ask me “well how do you explain this? How can you prove this?” I don’t have to prove it to you, all I have to do is wait till reality proves it for me.
Again, you nay sayers can go head and mock, ridicule, but for those of us who knew what were looking at, after studying and researching this, based on our understanding of how they operate, we knew in our hearts, and still know.

Thanks so much both of you!
Craigsnedeker, that site is just amazing, I think I might be hooked!
WahooPunch, thank you! Fiction Family has been a favourite of mine for a while actually, too. Jon Foreman is basically the best singer ever. Derek Webb sounds good as well.

Yeah, I came into this thread to suggest Josh Garrels. He's great. There's also The Welcome Wagon, which is very folksy/americana-ish. Psalters is really, really interesting... experimental folk revival... can't really describe it.

Sons of Korah is a very good Christian folk band. They sing psalms and they've got a bunch of instruments, different acoustic guitars drums they try different folk music from the world in their songs. They have bass, mandolin a bunch more instruments. They're my favorite band. they are based out of Australia.
