New Folk Music Discovery: Jeremy Squires - "Oblivious" from upcoming album due in October

North Carolina singer/songwriter Jeremy Squires is new to me, and has a very impressive, delicate fingerpicking acoustic guitar style and a terrific voice. Here's a new song he made available last week:

This is in advance of his next album, When Will You Go, due out in October. I'm already looking forward to hearing more from him. You can learn more and listen to more of his music, including the offer of a free sampler in return for your email, at his website.

Here's another recent track he made available for download, a cover of a Damien Jurado song, "Sheets":

I hear echoes of other acoustic favorites like early Richard Buckner and, of course, Jurado's work. Squires is an impressive talent.
