He is a perfect candidate with a long career of making interesting records in undeserved relative obscurity.
A friend turned me onto "Antique Glow" shortly before his 2006 Sub Pop release, "Below The Branches".
I saw him open for The Dirtbombs at Maxwells.
He was the natural performer his records suggest.
On some of my favorite songs he plays all the instruments.
I'm short on time, so I'll be brief.
"Kelley Stoltz (born 1971) is an American singer, songwriter, and musician. He currently resides in San Francisco, CA. His music has been compared to that of Brian Wilson, Velvet Underground, Nick Drake, and Leonard Cohen."
I'd say he's funnier than Nick or Leonard.
I'd add Ray Davies/1971 Kinks
Post Punk '80's, especially Echo & The Bunnymen
Dukes of Stratosphear
Wave Goodbye, too
