If you've never heard Will Whitmore before, his music is like a bluesy, bluegrass, folk type. He's only in his early 30's but his voice sounds weathered like he's been around a while. His music is great. I've seen him twice, have all his albums, and his latest "Animals in the Dark", is amazing. It seems a bit more uplifting than his past albums, but the tiring soul is still there. Every song is a story from his life, and that's why I think when you listen to him, you feel connected to his music. This album will not dissapoint anyone. It's amazing how he has gone under the radar, so to speak, when his music and voice are so good. When you listen to this album, it makes you want to go crawl into a log cabin, throw some logs on the fire, sit back with friends and loved ones, and drink some brew. Pick this album up! You will love it.
