#3 – Simone Felice – New York Times EP
Headlined by a song that he’d been playing for a while this EP turned out to be a remarkable find. With his subdued style and Cat Stevens sounding vocals Felice makes beautiful music that appeals to a wide swath of people. When he played the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival he sat there on the Porch Stage with just himself and his guitar and strummed like it was December 21st. It was a pleasure to see him play and it’s a pleasure to have listened to this EP.
