Hear This Artist Today: Paul Thomas Saunders

I don’t know a whole heap about Paul Thomas Saunders. I couldn’t write his biography or even his Wikipedia article. I couldn’t introduce him before he gives a guest lecture to earnest young students. But he’s writing some excellent music, and he deserves to be heard by your ears. He’s a singer-songwriter with a guitar, and I think we need more of them, but he has a desire to flesh out a whole song rather than leave it skeletal and malnourished; think Bon Iver, Bon Iver rather than For Emma. Not that he really sounds like Bon Iver—I guess he’s more Ben Howard—but he’s certainly worth your time, especially if all your time includes at the moment is you sitting at your laptop.

Here’s his latest track.
