Is exceptionally talented, and cruelly ignored. I thought I'd make a thread about him, because I discovered him by chance (months ago actually, but I just recently got his second album), and no one seems to have heard of him, and this actually bothers me. His two albums and Joshua Radin's album have been those "ahh, there is still great music in the world" albums for me recently.

Anyway, he's a singer/song writer, he's got the folky thing going on, but he's got such a soulful voice, and his lyrics are the first in a long time that while I've been listening to him I've just stopped everything I'm doing to just pay complete attention, he's got some genuinely smart and well crafted lyrics. Not to mention his songs are just brilliant musically too, well, a good 90% of them, but everyone has a few duds.

Generally I'm making this thread to shed some light on an artist waaaay to few people seem to know of, and I hope some people here go as far as to acquire albums, I might upload the two of them if some people ask, and yes, youtube videos:

EDIT: I SUCK. I do this every single time, can a mod kindly put this in other bands??

Neither of those songs really grabbed me, but he has a great voice.
