Try Corey Stevens (good start is his album Blue Drops of Rain) and a band called Indigenous. They are an American Indian group that are amazing. Their Live @ Pachyderm Studios album is great & the studio stuff, while not as great is still very good. Circle is my personal favorite of the studio LPs.

Another lesser known guy to check out is Eric Jerardi. He is a local Dayton Ohio artist but a few of his LPs are available nationally, and are almost always available on Amazon or Ebay. He injects a bit of the bluesy soul of SRV into almost everything he sings and plays.

THEKidWicked mentioned The Fabulous Thunderbirds good band. It was Steve-rays elder brother Jimmy who was the original guitarist of the band and taught his younger brother how to play and went solo in 1990 who is still recording and playing today.

Johnny Lee Hooker was a great "guitar' based artist.

although not "guitar" based like SRV I still love me some Gregg Allman.

OK, all the artists mentioned so far by other posters are great. But except for Kenny Wayne & Jeff Healey (listen to Healey's covers of "Confidence Man", & “Hoochie Coochie Man”!), they're not really channeling Stevie Ray. If you're specifically looking for artists that sound very similar to Stevie Ray, then check out these guys:

-Chris Duarte "Texas Sugar/Strat Magick" CD, especially the song "Big-Legged Woman". I think Chris's guitar playing comes the closest to Stevie's in terms of fat tone, attack, & passion. This album is like Stevie Ray meets the Chili Peppers!

-Doyle Bramhall (senior) (1949 - 2011). This guy is Doyle Bramhall II's father, & was 5 years older than Stevie Ray. He was the drummer for Stevie's brother Jimmie in the Chessmen, & Stevie looked up to him. Doyle senior was also a great singer, & wrote several songs for Stevie that Stevie recorded. Stevie got his singing style from Doyle senior, it's hard to tell them apart. Listen to Doyle's original version of "Life By the Drop", "Lost in the Congo", "Fourty Four", & "Tortured Soul".

-Cetan Clawson’s song “I Wanna Try” with Chris Layton from Double Trouble on drums, & Scott Nelson of Kenny Wayne Shepherd on bass. Also the live version of “Slingin” on YouTube. This kid looks like a cross between a young Bob Dylan dressed like Jimi Hendrix, & plays like a cross between Hendrix & Stevie Ray.

-Fredrick Strand Halland, a young Norwegian Guitarist, strongly influenced by Stevie Ray. Lots of Stevie Ray covers by him on YouTube.

-Philip Sayce, a Canadian. He's the former guitarist for Melissa Etheridge, & former second Guitarist for Jeff Healey, & has a Stevie-influenced style, albeit drenched in a lot of reverb. Check out his performance at the NAMM guitar show, with Yngwee Malsteem in the audience (Yngwee thinking “I weel Keel you”) – on the YouTube video titled “YouTube - Yngwie Checking Out Philip Sayce @ Fender_NAMM 2009.mp4”.
Philip also got praised by Bon Jovi when Bon Jovi saw him perform with Melissa Etheridge. See YouTube video “JON BON JOVI REACTS TO PHILIP SAYCE AT GRAMMY EVENT”

-John Mayer also does a good live imitation of Stevie Ray on several Youtube videos.

That is the best advice. I have found artists similar to other artists I like using Pandora.
