    I noticed this guy a year or two ago when he did well on "The Voice" with a tune called "Gone". More recently a friend sent me links to a couple of tunes he does, and this one really knocks me out. He can play the hell out of a guitar, and do it while singing. I hadn't heard the song before (living partly under a rock, I guess) but it's got great chord changes and vocal phrasing. And, he's from my hometown. Not sure how you get invited to a show at Levon Helm's barn but it seems a worthy goal.

    Went to a concert that he did in Toledo last year and he rocked it! I’m a fan!

    Laith was a good college friend of a buddy of mine at Michigan. Last year, as he was passing through the area between shows, he dropped in for a visit and he and his trio cranked up in the back room of a local brewery for a handful of us. The man is phenomenal and every bit as good a guy as he is a guitarist. A totally delightful evening.

    I saw him at the grocery store the other night. I did a double take and went on shopping. Pretty cool to see a local celebrity just going about their business. He is a very nice guy and a fantastic singer and tele slinger.

    Yep, Gone is great. I'm doing it in the acoustic duo now.
