    Does anyone like him?? I've never seen him posted or mentioned on AP, which is interesting cause I'd say he's RIYL Damien Rice, Noah Gundersen, Iron & Wine, Leonard Cohen, etc. Soft, semi-ambient, indie folk.

    The Weatherman is one of my favorite albums.

    I discovered this guy a couple months ago and came here to see if there was any mention! Really enjoying The Empty Northern Hemisphere lately.

    His album with backing from the Colorado Symphony is always in rotation for me. Gorgeous stuff.

    My theology professor would play songs before class and one day he played a love version of Idaho. I’ve been hooked ever since.

    "Too Far Away" is an incredibly beautiful song
