I just stumbled across an album released earlier in the year, Paupers Field. This is Dylan LeBlanc's debut album and very worthy. A real cool vibe to it, good songs and a great tone.
Did I mention I really like this guys voice.
If Time Was For Wasting

Dylan LeBlanc plays an acoustic rendition of 'Emma Hartley' the new single taken from his debut album 'Paupers Field', which is released on 23rd of August.
Dylan LeBlanc (born 1990 in Shreveport, Louisiana) grew up hanging out among the session musicians at Fame Studios. By age 7, LeBlanc was already learning how to play a picking style on the guitar and began writing his own songs when his father bought him a guitar for his 11th birthday. When he turned 15 he began to hone his songwriting by playing live whenever he could, often traveling hundreds of miles on his own to play to just a handful of people.
His musical influences include Townes Van Zandt, Neil Young and Spooner Oldham.
As soon as he was of legal age, LeBlanc was signed to Fame Music by Rodney Hall. Part of the deal was that LeBlanc got access to the studio, where he recorded his debut album. In early 2009, Rough Trade Records founder Geoff Travis was introduced to LeBlanc's music and signed him to Rough Trade.
LeBlanc's debut album Paupers Field was mixed by Trina Shoemaker and features guest vocals from Emmylou Harris. It was released on August 23, 2010. [Wikipedia]
