Nope - I live in Atlanta, Georgia, USA - I've just always been a sucker for pop singers with an English accen.... back in school, when I started playing the guitar, I discovered Johnny Marr & The Smiths, Elvis Costello, Pulp, XTC, Squeeze - all the 'Brit Pop' guys (not to mash all English guitar pop music into one big lump) that were 'indie' or 'alternative' music over here in the 80's & 90's. Haven't really followed it much lately, so it's nice to get exposure to newer stuff in posts like yours.

There are few American bands that I associate with this sound, but one is The Shins. Ever given them a listen? Excellent songwriting and just good, diverse music.....

working on a cover of this one now.....

Dang Rae, you weren't kidding about a sad song. And again you're introducing me to an artist I'm unfamiliar with, thank you for that. he's great. It's a super song and you do it so well. You are a strong performer (playing and singing). This song really suits your voice. Thanks,
Don
BTW, good job color coordinating with the nice blue shirt:)

Skidoo that's like old school Indie I like. Try downloading the stands all years leaving that is like ten years old but is in a very similar style. Dapuke thanks as always I'm glad you appreciate my songs choices. I think I'm.definitely improving vocally now and I'm much more confident can't wait until my iTunes single has been finished!

In my opinion one of your best Rae, love this song, one of the few I've downloaded from Itunes. What chords are you using?
