Although he's only been in Duluth for a few years, this young singer/songwriter with a distinctive style is firmly established in the local scene. He released his debut full-length album last year, and has a new EP on the way. He and his band The Salty Dogs have a release show scheduled on February 6 at Blush in Duluth; we got a preview when they stopped by our studios for a session that afternoon.
