Have you checked out Nick Drake at all? Similar vein to Buckley's folky stuff. Pink Moon is probably my favourite of his albums.

This one might be too obvious but...


Fred Neil - Fred Neil (1966) / Sessions (1967) full albums
https://youtu.be/NPDGjzhGutU

Or, perhaps...


Jackson C. Frank - Jackson C. Frank (1965)
https://youtu.be/0va3F2PWBJc

And someone a little bit different than the first two...


Damon - Song of a Gypsy (Live)

Also check out Townes van Zandt. His album Our Mother the Mountain is pretty folky.

Check out Alan Sorrrenti.
While he later moved to pop, his early albums are pretty out there and his singing and voice have a lot in common with Tim Buckley. The album 'Aria' might be a good start.

Another roughly comparable singer might be Claudio Milano (Nichelodeon/InSonar etc.)

Nice version of one of my favourite folk songs:

Kate Rusby with Declan O'Rourke - Bring Me A Boat





Here's the original (and best in my opinion):

Kate Rusby - Bring Me A Boat

May have posted this one before. I can't remember. Sweet song though.

Elephant Revival - Ring Around The Moon





I may have posted this one before too, or maybe it was in the Civil Wars thread, if such a thread exists. I think it does. I can't remember. Haha. Forgive my scatter brain. Great cover:

The Civil Wars - Billie Jean (Michael Jackson Cover)
