This week I have a special musical treat for you, one that I think you will really dig, a discovery I made by being in the right place at the right time.
His songs are for you if you like crafty lyrics, emotional voices, and the classic heart on your sleeve vibe I feel you should get from a songwriter.
I discovered John Moreland a few weeks ago when Whitney and I went to see Iron & Wine in Missoula. In typical fashion we showed up early wanting to see the opening act and man were we blown away by the performance of John Moreland. His album, In the Throes, is outstanding, as are the other two that we immediately purchased from his merch stand upon his performance ending.
The song that nailed me personally is called 3:59am and that one is off the In the Throes album. High on Tulsa Heat and his newest album Big Bad Luv are also outstanding. Again, if you dig raw lyrics, true songwriting, and a voice that delivers the message with emotion John Moreland is your guy and I strongly recommend digging into his catalog.
