    Elliott Smith

    His voice is just so gentle and beautiful, I could listen to his songs all day long. Its such a pity that he's no longer around. Quite a heavy loss for the world. :( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHDbCC0Ongs

    I Can't Thank Him Enough

    I've been through a lot of bad experiences, the past 7 years in particular have really done a number on me. I did'nt discover his music until after he had died. His music has kept me alive simply through identity and his ability to express thoughts in a manner far superior to...

    "I Gotta Hear...

    ...the same sermon all of the time from you people."   I figured open with a quote?   Short & sweet. I find his guitar work & harmonies to be almost as exceptional as his lyrics.   He really let us in, to bad I can not thank him.

    When I Met Elliott

    I first met Elliott right before the start of his Fig 8 tour. He was doing solo shows prior to the release of Fig 8. I think I was 19 years old, and I drove from Knoxville to D.C. to see him at a club called the Black Cat. I had arrived probably two hours early and met a guy from...

    I Tip My Hat To You Mr. Smith

    "No Name #1"

    describes me (at least, my interpretation of it does).  and this is my first 'story,' so forgive me for sort of copping out and just posting lyrics. actually, i think in lyrics/quotations sometimes; i always have. ANYWAY, back to the song - you know how simple tiny phrases...
