best artists in the last 15 years

I am wanting to focus on the newest and up coming artists. Specifically rock,folk and jazz or a mix of them. Who is most likely the most talented, best written and produced
Great list, I've got alot of new stuff to listen to and decide what suits my taste. My favorite band is Dire Straits. Always liked Pink Floyd alot as well. I just bought Eva Cassidy's, Live at Blues Alley. I'm impressed. I've developed an appreciation for the craftmanship of good music rather than what is popular. All this came from reading an old book written in the 60's called " this is music". I'm expanding my tastes and trying to have an open mind. Just curious, but , when in music stores there is a segment labeled Gospel. Is there anything good in gospel music?
Elbow. Elbow. Elbow.

Did I mention Elbow?

Also check out Spoon. Great productions.

The Flaming Lips. (especially Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots)

The Thrills.

Ambulance LTD.

Robert Glasper...the freshest sound to hit jazz in ages.

Jose Gonzalez. I hesitate to call it folk, but I can't really think of anything else to describe his music.

Wilco, Spoon, Radiohead, Fiest, NIN, Modest Mouse, Ben Harper! And much much more
