William Elliott Whitmore - Hymns for the Hopeless (2003)

Another of my favourite artists, William Elliott Whitmore, plays a unique brand of dark blues/country. His voice sounds like it should belong to someone much older, and his vocal presence is exemplified on the opening track of this, his debut album. From the a capella opening track to the banjos and guitars through the rest of the album, it's a pretty stellar debut.

I thought a lot of people had heard of William Elliott Whitmore by now, but my artist-popularity-gauge (Last.fm) shows a relatively low amount of listeners. So here ya go.

Plus, look how cool he is:
