Jon Foreman

Jon Foreman, lead singer of Switchfoot, will release the second iteration of his four EP project on Tuesday, entitled Winter. I have been listening to his first, entitled Fall, nonstop since I downloaded it last month. It is disarmingly honest, original and beautiful. Throughout, he smoothly trills through lines like;

"Over and Over, I hear the same refrain
Its the rhythm of my heart
and my sleepy girl's breathing
Its the rhythm of my Southbound train."

It's such gripping poetry, and has me addicted like I have not been in a long time. Listen to Cure for the Pain, thanks to the AM Music Blog

On the website, there are jpegs of the hand written lyrics of all of his songs. Check it out, its some of the best music I've ever heard.
