I looooove Copeland (and anything Aaron Marsh is involved in) and get absolutely high driving around driving around listening Deas Vail (their music in the ears of a driver should be illegal), but I listened to a couple things on the Valaska Myspace page and just felt kinda of ehh. I didn't think it was bad, but I just wasn't terribly impressed. I didn't get that urge to listen to listen to more songs or anything. I guess I'm trying to say I wasn't moved.

Never trust a first impression, though. That is something I've learned.
I'm more impressed with this upon first listen than I was with Deas Vail. Not to say they aren't great, but they have gotten better over time. I think the most impressive thing is it's only one guy.

Have you ever listened to Jeremy Larson? Also one guy who made two freaking amazing albums. Recommend checking him out if you haven't
Of course! Probably should have listed him in the post too. Probably the most close resembling artist to Valaska, but I was having a mind cramp thinking of bands/artists that made similar music. Love Larson to death though. Watch his DVD I got when I preordered his album all the time.

If there are any other bands I should know about that have this sound please share.

The guest vocalist on "Maverick" is Holly Ann Check her out. Another stellar talent, that shouldn't be overlooked. Not the same type of music, but great all the same. Such an awesome voice.

That live DVD is fantastic. Dude is so talented. Speaking of this guy though... I feel he's a very boring musician. I've heard two songs so far and they've bored me to death and I usually really enjoy music like this. I'll have to give it a shot another night but not really feeling this right now
Maybe it's not for everyone You should check out the girl I posted above^^^ She does the guest vocals on "Maverick". She's awesome.

I'll still check out the EP. Maybe the EP works better as a cohesive listen rather than listening to individual tracks kind of like Copeland. I don't think I would've enjoyed a band like Copeland without listening to an entire album first.

Edit:

Holly Ann's influences on her page: "the world as i see it. Jesus Christ my lord and Savior."

Seeing as how I'm Jewish it really keeps me from listening. I'm not all that religious but still
Eh, I wouldn't take that into account for her music. I'm not a religious man at all but I know when I hear something great.
