He is clearly drawing from different influences but he seems pretty authentic to me. I hear it as a kind of outlaw vibe that doesn't really belong to any specific region. But I do know what you mean when someone just takes on an accent, it can be off-putting. But, embodying a presence is something different. Like Gillian Welch - when I first heard her, I thought that she was born and raised in Appalachia, but I later found out that she was from Southern California (I think). But she embodies a whole culture in her music and is committed to the expression of that so there is an honoring that happens that transcends any falseness. IMHO.

Yes, I found his vibe really engaging and to me it seems that he's worked to find what he wants to do with both the guitar and the vocal.

That is what I really responded to. He captured my attention with his voice but kept me there because of a presence that he has committed to, if that makes sense.

I apologize for derailing the thread - I am still happy to discover what the guitar is.
