So I really dig this new guy, Jay Brannan
. He's got a really light smooth voice, that pairs awesomely with the light guitar picking on his tracks and simple melodies. In a way he kind of reminds me of a simpler, happier version of Jason Mraz meets Sondre Lerche. It's lighter fare that reminds me of happier times, but with lyrics that are straightforward in their storytelling narrative.
My favorite is "Can't Have it All" below, and "At First Sight" which addresses issues like responding to craiglist ads and not loving the guy you're sleeping with. Interesting, haha.
He's got some tour dates too so check them out if you like what you hear.
