Not many people seem to know him but I think he's one of the best But then again I don't live in America, so I don't know how big he is there
Do you know him? What do you think?

I hope 6 years later isn't too late.

He's not very big here, and I'm not entirely sure why. Live as I'll Ever Be is a really solid showcase of his work, and I think he's got an incredible guitar style, and his lyrics aren't complex but still manage to cut me to the bone sometimes. e.g. "You can't buy it on the shelf, you've got to grow it from the seed" in "No love today" just hits a nerve. Here's a good version that I really enjoy.
