His name is Foy Vance. I stumbled upon him while looking for production ideas for my first recording project. For those of you who are not yet familiar with his music, here's a video shot at Pete Townsend's UK studio. This song, Indiscriminate Act of Kindness is from his first album, HOPE and brings Richard Thompson to mind. Its a beautiful, well crafted song and his voice has the emotional nuance necessary to properly tell this story.
As I continue my search for writers/performers who appear to be in my tribe, I'll share some exceptional ones with you here. Enjoy!
