Joshua Glenn is probably one of my favorite songwriters ever. Based somewhere on the Southeast Coast, Glenn travels in search of the loneliest, saddest songs and captures them in little jars for us. This is the music I crave when I just want to sit alone, wrapped in a quilt and cry my heart out. His music feels like a sweet, melancholy blend of Ben Gibbard, Leonard Cohen, and the National.
Between his songwriting and the travel diary collection of writings and photos on tumblr, this boy bleeds poetry and creativity. I’m hopelessly hooked.
