* Music/VanMorrison. It's true he's a very well-respected Artist, but his fanbase is mostly relegated to critics and other musicians. Many people think he's responsible for the hits "Brown-Eyed Girl", "Domino", "Gloria", and maybe "Wild Night", "Moondance" and "Have I Told You Lately..." and nothing more. Yet he's easily the Northern Irish equivalent of his contemporaries Music/BobDylan and Music/NeilYoung, and his successor, BruceSpringsteen.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/user/dyesiwasaki?&ab_channel=FAKETYPE FAKE TYPE.]] is a highly underrated Japanese [[HipHop hip-hop]]/[[ElectroSwing electro swing]] duo, who was most known for spawning a dance meme based on their song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ntt5-y50yi4&ab_channel=HamuMr Nightmare Parade]]. They make very funny and dance-able swing and EDM pop (with the occasional slow pop piece), all mixed with fast rap segments and rather fitting cartoony vocals. Bonus points for having [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8EfQF4Jg3I&ab_channel=FAKETYPE rather]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MQ865X2CS4&ab_channel=FAKETYPE adorable]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIbH2mmwqWA&ab_channel=FAKETYPE music]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLWdIrYI1X8&ab_channel=FAKETYPE videos]] depicting their avatars Topham and Iwasaki. Definitely worth checking out.

* [[http://www.tallyhall.com/ Tally Hall]]. Dear LORD, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tq46m0FT42I their]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cS58HURlgUc new]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVAxGQX9ZZg album]] is looking to be (yet again) a pop masterpiece. They independently released a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGQZItOMz6k phenomenal debut]] and recorded the follow-up with major producer Tony Hoffer, only to suffer from DevelopmentHell in accordance with Atlantic Records, who held onto the record for a while and then decided to junk it. These guys should be huge, but they're back to being signed to an obscure indie label and playing small venues across the US.

* Geinoh Yamashirogumi, the band - [[InsistentTerminology er...collective]] that worked on {{Anime/Akira}}, is very, very unknown outside of Japan, [[NoExportForYou with none of the albums actually getting released outside Japan]]. Some of their best work includes [[http://www.20jazzfunkgreats.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/geinoh%20yamashirogumi%20-%20ito%20wo%20tsumuideita%20toki.mp3 Ito Wo Tsumuideita Toki]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRQiaRrNbCY Chaos]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWD4f2GdEdw Gaia]], and my personal favorite, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVmZjEJ03Rc Reincarnation]]. I'm actually surprised not many people have heard of it. It is just such an incredible band - [[InsistentTerminology er...collective.]] Sadly, their last album was released in 1990, so we probably won't get anything new from them.

* By the standards of [[IdolSinger Idol Singers]] with connections to the DisneyChannel (although she doesn't record on a Disney-owned label), Creator/EmilyOsment may count. Since 2009, when she first started seriously pursuing a singing career, she's released a mini-LP, a full length CD and a number of songs for soundtracks, all of which have had relatively modest success compared to, say, the Hollywood Records-signed MileyCyrus, SelenaGomez or the JonasBrothers. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEJlyyyAlDE&ob=av2e Her]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1pjTRmGPhs&ob=av2e songs]] [[{{Earworm}} are ''insanely'' catchy]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jauthmokKWk&ob=av2e and]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NOotunFktU well-written]], [[GenreRoulette in many different styles]], and she has a unique way of presenting her songs in music videos. Her full-length CD, the techno-dance-flavored ''Fight Or Flight'', was produced by Nellee Hooper and features songs co-written by Adam Schlesinger of Music/FountainsOfWayne. Osment is a very talented live performer with a low-key, but exciting live show. She also plays guitar, co-writes most of her music and has a very good singing voice. Many music fans and journalists not normally interested in TeenPop have enjoyed her music, she does have a following, but has yet to really catch on in the mainstream. Unfortunately, perhaps because she's signed to an AlternativeRock music label (Wind-Up Records, which signed Music/{{Evanescence}}) not known for promoting pop acts, and she has no Disney shows to cross-promote as of 2012, she winds up (no pun intended) under the radar.

* Music/{{Torae}} is an underrated Brooklyn rapper ([[SeriousBusiness not Bronx]], [[BigApplesauce Brooklyn]]) easily on par with {{Nas}} and Music/JayZ, but he doesn't have the gimmicks of more popular artists or the [[SoBadItsGood sheer shittiness]] of acts like Solja Boy, Kitty Pryde, and Lil B the Based God.

* While she's an iconic figure in her native UK, KateBush is relatively obscure in the U.S. Which is a shame, as she's one of the most unique and innovative singer-songwriters of all time.

* 2wo, [[Music/JudasPriest Rob Halford's]] side project. Signed by [[NineInchNails Trent Reznor's]] label, they only lasted a couple of years and made one album (which sold poorly.) Their best known song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFr53FLotRE I am a Pig]] was featured on the ''Film/IdleHands'' soundtrack.
