I Wish I Could Buy Stock in Ray Lamontagne

He is going to be a star. His music manages to sound fresh and, at the same time, completely familiar. My friend Will’s first question was “Is he playing covers?” And even though I knew they were originals, I had to briefly reconsider; the songs seem as if stolen from Ben Harper & Bob Dylan’s secret love child.

Get the album here.
Read this fairly bizarre account of how he became a musician.

Update: If you're going to download just one song illegally, download Trouble. If you're going to download just two more songs illegally, download How Come and Shelter.
