    Georgy Catoire's piano music reminds me of Debussy in places.

    This might be a slightly out-of-left-field recommendation, but Francois Couperin reminds me a lot of Debussy and Ravel. Now, obviously he's precedes them by two centuries so there is, in one sense, a huge stylistic gap between the baroque and the late romantic/early modern impressionists. However, Couperin's approach to composition, where pieces are like mini tone-poems often with titles of characters or locations, has a certain affinity with the impressionists. Ravel was undoubtedly influenced by him given that he dedicated a work to him, Le tombeau de Couperin. I'm fairly certain he was an influence on Debussy as well.

    I would pretty much bet that both Debussy and Ravel heavily studied Listz

    Debussy was a big "fan" of Grieg.

    I haven't seen anyone mention Edward MacDowell! I think he's pretty awesome.

    Pretty is a good way to describe his short works

    Nothing against Edward MacDowell but his musical language is pretty close to Tchaikovsky and has nothing to do with the music of Debussy (unless you mean the very early Debussy, but then you might as well be talking about Fauré).

    This to my my mind is a rare example of piano music that's not only heavily influenced by Debussy but also quite magnificent in its own right:
