JLT is probably my fav singer. For his solo CDs of original material I would get Usual Suspects and Second Hand Life. It's a a mix of AOR and Melodic Hard Rock. IF you are looking for the Bluesy Hard Rock, then try the self titled "JLT" For indie releases, the production on these sound as good as the records with big budgets.

The Sunstorm, too syrupy for my taste. Great vocals. If you are looking for something in this vein, go Rescue You. This style is not my fav though. I also think the first Sunstorm is massively overrated. I don't hear many good song on it.

Nothing's Changed is not bluesy... I find it more singer/songwriter kind of stuff with both acoustic and electric guitars, piano, etc.. One of his more different records. If it weren't for the poor production, this one would rate very highly. I still like a lot of it. Bad Blood is a great song

The first Undercover record is a great record too IMHO

I would rate the must haves for me as:

Usual Suspects
Second Hand Life
Nothings Changed

I could spend another few paragraphs on his other work, but you asked about solo stuff.

My 2 Cents,
