I've been enjoying a new American artist, Scott Monaghan who goes by the name of Mr Pitiful.
His music strikes a chord with me. (pardon the all too obvious pun!)
He's done a great job of building his profile using the internet - as far as I can tell, it's all his own work too.
He's bluesy and gravelly smooth if there is such a thing.
