Make A Big Space In Your Heart For Small Houses
There exist those rare occasions when you come across an artist who radiates such creative authenticity, emotional integrity and insightful gravitas that upon listening the line between the world you are in and they world they create becomes temporarily indistinguishable. When listening to Michigan's Small Houses - Jeremy Quentin's indie/folk project - the bounds between his world and yours will simply dissolve to the point that you won't know whether the lump in your throat, or the tear in your eye and the swell of your heart, is his or yours.
Cultivating a intensely moving and magnetically emotive brand of finger-picking guitar driven indie/folk, Small Houses sweeps the listener up into his reality with a truly captivating, intimately spell-binding wonder. With the kind of hard-scrabble forged profundity and worldly sagacity that you would expect to find in the soul of the most restless box-car poet or back-roads troubadour, he maps the emotional grid of the dusty highways and byways of the heart and soul with a genuinely awe-inspiring intimacy, honesty and sensitivity.
Guided by the grit-scratched huskiness of his care-worn and world-weary voice, Small Houses paints such vivid pictures of yearning for the comfort of hearth and home amid the wind-blown solitude of life's hopes, dreams, fears and heartbreak, that you will come away changed for having listened.
