Like Howie Beck on with poisoned eyes
and then like Rob Pollard on Brown grass.
If you like willy mason, and micah p hinson (i'm not saying it sounds exactly the same, but it is equally lovely and bears many an influence), check out www.myspace.com/ruarrijoseph
The man upstairs of my flat is listening to highly abusive sounding opera...
it's pretty unfair to dismiss all male singer-songwriters as Blunts. What about the aforementioned Willy Mason, Micah P Hinson, and many other strummers? Surely the good ones outweigh the few yet prominent balladeers in the charts?
if you're not into it, it all sounds the same. The 'balladeers' only re-enforce this notion.
Thanks for the Ruarri Joseph link, really liking it, and as He is playing in Devon and Cornwall I may actually get to go to a gig!
To me, metal and emo all sounds exactly the same, but I'm sure the fans can hear some difference.
Ru is great isn't he! (he's my boyfriend's brother, he got signed to Atlantic a few months ago) He's playing a small gig in the Taphouse in St Agnes (Cornwall) on Thursday, and supporting Ben Taylor (James Taylor's son) on his UK tour. He's worth seeing live, whether solo or with his band, it's always great. Had a sneaky listen to his album sampler yesterday, and it's brilliant.
Doubtful due to work though :-(
