Wasn't familiar at all before with
Townes Van Zandt
Bonnie Prince Billie

Dax's covers made me check out more
Nick Drake
Leonard Cohen

There were some others I can't remember, which he mentioned in interviews, but apparently they didn't stick, so they don't count, I guess.

Santeria and The Twitches.

Still itching to see one of them, but I have been lucky enough to see Dege do a solo set before one of the last time Dax played at Chelsea's Cafe.

Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, Lucinda Williams (less than the others, but I enjoy her and don't change the channel when she comes on Outlaw Country or something).

Santeria and Dege of course.

Dax got me into Nick Drake, I may or may not have discovered him eventually without Dax but when I did it changed my life. Learning Nick Drake songs helped me find my voice as a guitar player as well as helped me stumble blindly through life in general. Nick is an idol of sorts to me, a true artist.
Less importantly also got into T Rex, Small Faces, Neutral Milk Hotel and surely many others through Dax. One of my favorite parts of music and art in general is when you discover one artist, you basically discover 20 more through their influences and interests.
