October 8, 2012
Possibly the greatest folk musician who ever lived

In Nick Drake's short life, he has made 3 albums, 31 songs (and that's not including bootlegs or posthumous releases), and toms of still photographs. He has suffered from depression a d insomnia almost all of his life, he has rarely performed live, and the only know footage of him is when he was a baby.

Nick has never made not one bad song. His featherlight voice, unique guitar-picking, and melancholy lyrics reminiscent of William Blake and John Keats rather than shantys and singalongs like most other folk artists do, truly are "a troubled cure for a troubled mind" and "a way to blue"...
