I saw him tonight at Easy Street Records in Seattle. It was a nice little show. He told some amusing stories and played a couple good songs. I wasn't completely entranced though. A lot of his songs sort of sound the same in that slow, quiet, pretty voice sort of way. It was like Sufjan Stevens without all of the good instrumentation and hauntingly beautiful lyrics. He did a version of Paul Simon's "You Can Call Me Al" that I really liked, though, but he refused to do the chorus which as we all know is the best part.
Are his albums mostly just acoustic guitar or does he utilize more instruments and vocalists? I've never heard anything but what I heard tonight.
I'm sending you his latest cd (the only one I have at the moment) in pieces via gmail. Let me know if it doesn't work or if you switched emails. (I'm currently having trouble on my end, I'll tell you when it goes through.)
