* Canadian folk singer '''Indio''' received critical acclaim and considerable buzz for his 1989 debut single "Hard Sun", which featured no less of an icon than Music/JoniMitchell on backing vocals and made it to #10 on both the Canadian pop chart and the American alternative chart. Then, just as the song was at the peak of its popularity, Indio more or less dropped off the face of the Earth. He had become disillusioned by the music industry and [[OneBookAuthor never recorded another album]]. The next time he popped up was in 2009, when he sued [[Music/PearlJam Eddie Vedder]] for changing the lyrics to "Hard Sun" in his cover version for the ''Film/IntoTheWild'' soundtrack.

* '''Delbert [=McClinton=]''': A true rarity, as he managed to be a one-hit wonder on three different charts with three different songs. First, he hit #8 on the pop charts in 1980 with the blues-rock song "Givin' It Up for Your Love". Then he got to #13 on Mainstream Rock Tracks in 1992 with "Every Time I Roll the Dice"[[note]]which barely made Top 40 in Canada as well[[/note]]. ''Then'' he got to #4 on the country charts in 1993 as a duet partner on Tanya Tucker's "Tell Me About It". He remained a fairly popular artist regardless, having written Emmylou Harris's 1978 hit "Two More Bottles of Wine" in addition to winning a handful of Grammys.
