Soooo there's this guy Theo Katzman. He just started out on his own not so long ago, after being in a band,with Charlene Kaye, for some time. Although he hasn't gone solo completely (three bands in total), his solo musical process is quite interesting. He has an album that was just recently released, Romance Without Finance, and I really love it. It's not a huge selection of songs, only 9 to listen to, but each one has its own little twist and mood. I got a chance to meet him in New York City when he was playing with Charlene Kaye and Shoot the Freak (sadly, they just split up and had their last performance last week) and he is very sweet.
SO! If you're interested, look at the links I posted and tell me if you like his style/music in general
