    think early Leonard Cohen in terms of sprawling acoustic guitar driven songs (at least some are like this). his voice is rather unique but a little emotive and he kind of reminds me Bonnie Prince Billy's. The instrumentation (for Parables & Primes at least) is simple and creates a welcoming intimate atmosphere, like an honest, folk-country record. LISTEN TO HIM FOR HIS WONDERFULLY CATCHY RHYMES
