Hey everyone. I'm looking for artists or music similar to Chapin, Mitchell, Taylor, Knopfler, etc.

 

Any recommendations?

 

Thanks

I'm not quite sure what you are looking for since these artists are hard to pin to one genre as their careers progressed. I'm going with stuff I would consider folk and folk rock.

Carole King
Nick Drake
Richard & Linda Thompson
Richard Thompson
Fairport Convention (3 Sandy Denny Albums)
Sandy Denny
Gordon Lightfoot
Tim Hardin
Cat Stevens
Paul Simon
Jim Croce

Check out some fairly early Dylan like this one from 1965:

 

 

I doubt there's an artist mentioned so far that wasn't very influenced by this album.

And don't underestimate the real folk blues music, like Muddy Waters in 1964:
