folk singer and multi-instrumentalist sam moss is one of my favorite of the burgeoning new crop of musicians mining the american folk tradition. sam's playing is crisp, bright and classically influenced in addition to its roots credentials, and the new addition of his tremulous, silvery voice is welcome in a field that often side-steps singing. this recent live performance from jeffrey davison's shrunken planet show on WFMU is a great intro in sam's sound.
