Andy Shauf- Hometown Hero ( Sessions)

I just heard Canadian singer-songwriter Andy Shauf for the first time a few days ago and have not been able to stop listening. He is a brilliant wordsmith and does an exceptional job of marrying his words with music. He does not overcomplicate;he does not understate; he makes sure his story is told in the exact fashion that it deserves. I have never been to Saskatchewan, but through his songs, one comes away with excellent images of the desolate and isolating place that it seems to be. It is always best to hone in on a character or a certain specific point in time to give your listener a good idea of the picture you are trying to paint and Andy does the job right.
