M vocal with feeling, acoustic guitar leads some strings & keyboard. Chamber pop, very well recorded with a minumum of effects (a little reverb & eq maybe). Great musicianship and mature voice. His name sounded familiar, turns out he has a bunch of solo records, and was in 90's band "Beekeeper" with her sister Karla who went on to join Ida & have a solo career of her own.

+1.Lilting 3/4 time, slice of life/breakup?
+2.Simpler instrumentation, acoustic guitar and singing. Good tune. Chord changes almost prog!
3. Fast music, minor key strumming, sorry for self.
+4.delicate, nature allusions, 3/4 time, piano, strings, some oboe?
+5.Fast strumming and wind, string instrumental. A quick folk-dance?
6.Slooow 3/4 time.
7.Defiant. Acoustic guitar & singing, with some other voices in the chorus & rest of band joining for improv accompaniment, builds.
