Tom Waits

With a voice described by critic Daniel Durchholz as sounding “like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car,” Tom Waits continues to rip my soul with every rough word. His talent  for songwriting and music lingers on every note and syllable.

These are some of my favorites:

Bottom of the World

Long Way Home
