I know that I recently posted a Tuesday Mix, but I just heard this song and had to pass it along. It hit me in ways that made my breath catch. I don’t know Sam Reynolds, but I plan to!
You can listen to the whole album here on his website: Sam Reynolds
I was a little surprised to find that Sam is only 22 years old. I copied the below from his website:
sam reynolds is a 22 year old singer-songwriter from the new York state in America. he’s played in illustrious venues in London, irrelevant coffeehouses in New York, and any number of only-just-relevant bars and clubs in Charleston, South Carolina (among others). critical and popular acclaim has followed sam’s young career in abundance. we, the people at samreynoldsmusic.com both encourage and appreciate this.
recently, he recorded his first studio album, entitled “sam reynolds I,” in Los Angeles with the aid of one brian t. moore (producer/engineer/mixer) and one derek cournoyer, sam’s beloved french-canadian manager.
now residing in and around New York City, sam continues to write and record material, as well as play in reputable venues throughout these united states of America.
sam’s creative influences include primatology, astrophysics, elliott smith, the philosophy of the universe, biology of the planet earth, depression, anxiety, psychosis, larry levis, small villages, the color green, and the very strange matter of self-aware matter.
mp3: “Good to Get Out” – Devon Sproule
Spring is here! When it’s not snowing the weather has been beautiful, open the doors, drive with the window down, breeze on your face beautiful. I look forward to more and more days like today and it does feel really good to get out of the house!! I don’t know what this song is really about, but with these sunny Spring days, that is where it takes me.

mp3: “Twilight” – Elliott Smith
Apparently Kill Rock Stars is releasing a couple remastered Elliott Smith albums this Spring. While trying to find a link to those albums I found a couple more mp3s to share. I wish that I had known about Elliott and his music before he decided to leave this world. Actually, I wish he hadn’t made that choice in the first place. I am sure that he still had a lot of music left to share.
Album: “From a Basement on the Hill”
