34 song American Heartbreak album released earlier this year and it's the leader in the clubhouse for album of the year in my opinion. 


Something In The Orange & Billy Stay are currently wrecking my world

    This is a very good album. I have been lucky enough to have been following him for most of his (short) career so far, and I admit I was nervous to hear this album. Obviously, the production value was upped a good bit from his prior releases, and once I saw 34 tracks, I wasn't sure what to think.

    But, it's quite good. It is a tad bloated (hard not to be at 30+), but if I had to trim it down, I'd probably still end up with a tracklisting in the high 20s. There really aren't that many throw aways. He writes excellent songs, that's for sure, and the album is really enjoyable. I haven't yet caught him live, but am really hoping to ASAP.

    Honestly both albums he released this year by far the best albums of the year in my book. I am not a country fan, but his music is more singer singer writer some lean country some more towards rock or southern rock. My son introduced me to him last year but his other releases were just him sitting around with an acoustic guitar on YouTube which is how,he was discovered. American Heartbreak is an amazingly well written 34 song official debut album. And honestly no real filler. I encourage everyone to give it a go it’s really a fantastic album.  Then To follow it up with a 9 song EP like a month later and have it be just as strong is insane.

    I love the 9 song ep and Somethimg In The Orange. I was looking at tickets on Stubhub for his concert in Oct. at The Fillmore in Detroit, friggen $400+ for top balcony. 😳

    The entire album and subsequent ep are both stellar. Pretty much all I have been listening to this summer. And he has been dropping more tracks on YouTube the last couple weeks. He does not stop writing.

    Figured I would jump in and give this a bump. He has release another 4-5 songs over the course of the fall and is pretty far along with yet another album. Plus he will be releasing a live LP from his red rocks show in November. Best song writer i have heard in years. He has been on steady for me since may. Usually I tire of an artist and move on but keep going back to his music. Worth a listen. So many amazing songs.

    Yep! Been loving both songs on the “Greatest Day of My Life” single. Love “Fifth of May”. Looking forward to whatever he releases.

    Yes love them both. Just thinking his record company must hate him for just randomly dropping so many good songs instead of saving them for albums. 😂
