Summary: singer, songwriter, and guitarist who had recently gained national acclaimed as a sweet-singing indie artist following his songwriting career that was strong enough to earn him a deal with one of the country's most influential indie-rock record labels and whose vocal style was described in one review as an "angelic falsetto, a cross between Alison Krauss and Art Garfunkel that is often (understandably) mistaken for a female contralto."
