Beard bands are apparently all the rage in today's hip music scene. Not always my jam, personally, but I stumbled onto Ray LaMontagne in something like February and haven't been able to live without his smoothly raspy voice since. I love almost every song (which is unusual due to my music ADD). The guy used to work at a shoe factory and one day heard some song that gave him the crazy idea to become a musician. Not long later, he was at the Key Arena mainstage at Bumbershoot crooning to my heart in person. Seriously, who is this guy?
I just love him. I love his lyrics. I love his presence. I love his way with guitar. I even love his beard.
Here's a few of my favorites:
Seriously, how great is that beard.
