Reminds of Iron+Wine with a hint of Yola Tengo. A nice fusion of electronic pulse and acoustic glow.

I don't know if I would compare this music to Elliott Smith, but it's real pretty and I know a lot of girls love it. What an interesting bio. I think the mental health field is great fuel for inspiration and thought. Cheers William Fitzsimmons!
