His current and third album The Awakening is a warm, live-sounding collection of classic but contemporary folk-soul songs. The album represented a sound of an artist coming of age. ôMy first two albums felt like practice shots,ö he says, ôand now IÆve graduated. In many ways this feels like my first proper album.ö
