I've been meaning to check this guy out since a friend heard me playing Bill Fox and enquired whether it was The Tallest Man on Earth. After my initial confusion about Fox's height, I assumed it was this one he was talking about. Like Fox, he plays a very Bob Dylan influenced form of lo fidelity music that is kept incredibly sparse. I'm not massively into his voice though, its just a bit too pleading and mixed too high in the mix. Its that kind of shop-bought soulfulness that effects buskers across this Earth. The songs are pretty strong though, and I assume that's what is carrying him through the second track, 'The Dreamer', which is very Bruce Springsteen but otherwise the EP mainly recalls Nebraskan fluffy-fringed whiner Bright Eyes. The guitar picking is lovely though, so if you can get over the vocals you could well be onto a winner.
