Don’t even know how I ran across Simon Llewelyn Evans but I am glad I did. He has a new album as of last week (May 9th, 2009) and I liked the first track (above) and checked him out on MySpace – 218 profile views! Um, outside of my own seriously lacking profile, rarely do you see such a low number for someone obviously talented enough to make it to this blog… Okay, all kidding aside, this Australian needs more love.
The lead off track “Woman at a Mountain” is a wandering acoustic track with a bit of easy listening vocals. It is almost the most relaxing thing I have heard in a long time. You may feel like you have heard him before as his voice is “that voice”. This is a guy that Zach Brafffff was looking for when he picked Colin Hay for the soundtrack to Garden State.
That’s all I got today, but come on everyone – head over to the Simon Llewelyn Evans MySpace Page to listen to a few more tracks and be his friend and talk him up a bit. You might even find his album on iTunes right here if you simply can’t wait after listening above.
