Macdadtexas-Have you given Anita Baker's 1990 release Compositions a second/recent listen? The production might not be as tight and polished as Rapture but this gives the musicians more room to breathe. Anita's vocals have never been better and the songwriting is less cliche and more introspective then on Rapture.
I'm not sure "great artist" applies, but The New Radicals were a terrific rock band that went "one and done". That one record, 1998's "Maybe You've Been Brainwashed, Too", was IMO one of the best rock records of the decade. The band's main man, Gregg Alexander, evidently decided that he didn't want to perform any more and settled into a career as a songwriter.
