List of singer-songwriters

This is a list of singer-songwriters, who write, compose, and perform their own musical material. The list is divided into two sections to differentiate between artists categorized as singer-songwriters and others who do not fall under the definition associated with the genre:

  • Traditional singer-songwriters
  • Others who both write songs and sing

Traditional singer-songwritersEdit

This list enumerates people who record and perform in the traditional singer-songwriter approach. These performers write their own material, accompany themselves on guitar or keyboards, usually perform solo or with limited and understated accompaniment, and are known as much for their songwriting skills as for their performance abilities.
