  • one of the best artists alive right now
  • Have a listen to 'Just Like Today'. It's a very moving, true slice of life.

He's heaven-sent or so... I'm sure.
  • Fair Dinkum Legend
  • I just saw him open for B.B. King last night in Minneapolis. I love B.B., but still, I could have listened to this guy all night long. This is the best new-to-me music I've encountered in years. What an awesome, unforgettable musician!
  • Caught him Bris Vegas, one of my favourite gigs ever
  • Just saw him last week in Boise, Idaho. Amazing show. Moved me to tears.
  • Dude was pure class when I saw him. Seemed like he was sick as a dog, though.
  • Very nice. Good to hear admiring a beautiful landscape :)
