Willis Earl Beal is one that I have followed his story and have become even more attached to his music. Check out his video for 'Evening's Kiss' and you will see all of Beal's artsy talents at work in a single 3:21 glimpse. The video is completely hand drawn from his own drawings which makes the video and song even that much more creative and good. This is one of my favorite tunes of 2012 so far, it just offers a perfect connection with the listener no matter who you are.
Looks for Beal's debut album Acousmatic Sorcery on April 3rd via Hot Charity.
