Zack Miles - The Early Riser And Other Midnight Stories

The sound of Zack Miles's The Early Riser and Other Midnight Stories is simplistic in that it's only one man and his acoustic guitar, but the quick, intricate finger-picking allows him to get a lot of mileage (I swear to you there was no pun intended there. Please believe me!) out of his one instrument. Miles has a background in banjo, and it shines through in his guitar playing today. 

The soft, yet self-assured quality of Zack Miles's voice pairs perfectly with his style of guitar playing, and that combination makes The Early Riser and Other Midnight Stories the perfect soundtrack for a rainy fall day. As I write this, I'm listening to the record while drinking coffee as it rains outside, and all is right with the world.
