Wales' Ger Wolfe
I have read a few comparisons to Nick Drake, but of course this is an impossible label to live up to. He has definitely listened to Nick Drake at some point in his life, but he has forged his own distinctive style. The closest contemporary artist in style that I can think of is Ger Wolfe. This view may well be influenced by Gareth Bonello's (The Gentle Good) attention to his Welsh cultural influences. Those influences are explored by blending Welsh and English language tracks as well as the occasional traditional track. The mix combines to create an atmosphere which is both romantic and lonely.
