You might have encountered his name if you've listened to Bat for Lashes, or Grizzly Bear. I saw him at Later with Jools Holland on the BBC. And someone else could have spot him busking in New York or London. That's how he learned his skills, by performing on street and again and again trying to catch the audience attention with his music.
Darwin could have wrote a book about this. But he got the attention of Kyp Malone (TV on the Radio)Kyp invited him in the studio and I bet the rest is history.
And when you hear his music on cd (studiowork) you hear some very nice arrangements
He sometimes sounds a bit like Stevie Wonder or John Legend. Enjoy " White Sails" and the more uptempo song "Deep in my Heart" have a nice weekend and I hope to see you back on monday!
