very mellow band?

Can anyone recommend a band that creates a lot of mellow music that is sooo mellow, it will put you in a duh state or will want to make you want to fall asleep?

I would prefer the following:

1. a band that is NOT a boy band

2. most of the songs aren’t about love

3. the song has lyrics

4. the band uses a decent amount of piano in their music (it doesn’t have to be in all of their music, but I tend to like pianos in music)

Thanks for your time. I will give the best answer 10 points.

Although these bands don’t just have mellow songs, they have a lot and I would prefer that you wouldn’t answer my question with “Coldplay” or “Radiohead” because I already listen to them.

    Five For Fighting. John Ondrasik plays piano and acoustic guitar. He has some love songs but most of his songs are not. And, you can actually hear and understand the lyrics when he's singing.

    Some Circa Survive songs are pretty mellow. I listen to them when I go to sleep all the time.
