When you think “singer songwriter,” fierce is not a word that often comes to mind. But there is something slightly fierce about the opening seconds of Lex Land’s new album “Were My Sweetheart To Go”.

Jazzimodo: Artist You Should Know

Posted June 29, 2011 by | 1 Comment | 6,531 views]

From KCRW Music Blog Contributor Jose Galvan:

This brought me to tears when Jason Bentley played it this morning so I had to track it down and post.
