Bryan Drummond "Sea Of Timber"
This is a great album. Upon listening to it it's very easy to notice similarities to albums by artists such as Beck, Nick Drake, and early Jose Gonzalez. Regarding the Beck comparison one of the closest album comparisons that comes to mind is the "Sea Change" album. Like most artists that sound like much better known artists often times singers and songwriters try to sound too much like the other band or artists style way too much to the point where it makes the artist sound 2nd or 3rd rate or worse. Bryan Drummond doesn't appear to make efforts towards taking too much from his influences. It's his style and it's class. If he keeps with it you'll definitely be hearing more great stuff coming from him.
