I'm very much digging on Mason Jennings right now. I know, I'm late to the scene, this album came out last year. But if by chance you haven't heard him yet, I highly, highly recommend it.

From a song about the birth of a sickly child, where he croons, "Dear God, if you ain't got love." To the heartfelt query, "Jesus are you stronger than a loaded gun?" He's a storyteller with a strange rhythmic sensibility. Like Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, Ani Difranco, et al.

For some reason I couldn't embed the image, but please click here to watch the music video for his song "Be Here Now." It's good.
