Damien Jurado has been releasing albums since the late 90's. Last May he released Saint Bartlett to widely positive reviews. To me, there's a tinge of Neil Young in his voice. His music is straight forward, and honest. He also recently played a "Tiny Desk Concert" for NPR. Their write up, describes Damien Jurado perfectly, so check it out here.
One of the songs Jurado plays at the "Tiny Desk Concert" is entitled "Newspaper Gown" and is currently unreleased. It's a real gem, so take a listen!
Jurado starts the North American portion of his tour tomorrow, which includes a date at DC's Black Cat. Who wants to come with me??? Find out more about Damien Jurado by visiting his website
