I just found this guy. Amazing. Veneer is a wonderful album. He makes personal songs and that's why I like it so much.

Linkage for anyone who wants it.

YES!! I'm so glad someone else is totally digging this guy! Veneer is completely mellowing my world ("rocking out" doesn't seem to be the right phrase...). He's touring the U.S. starting August 26th. Anybody else going? I'm so glad he's coming to the South!

The voice kills it for me, and the lyrics are too bad to ignore.
