An incredible singer-songwriter from Portland, The White City, who inspired a reign of waves of both obscure and popular musicians from the 90's until now. Currently, many lonely boys are connecting with his music because of some of the central themes of unrequited love in songs such as Pitseleh
. He is also well known for his lovely and intricate guitar work, which is much more complex than it sounds. His songwriting and musical skills are near unmatched, especially in songs such as Junk Bond Trader, both for lyrics and melody. It is always easy to understand the meaning and purpose of his songs, even when you don't understand what it is referring to or the subject matter. They are just easy to relate to. Unfortunately, his depression led to his suicide as a reminder that something so overwhelmingly good, positive, and beautiful such as him could not have lasted much longer.
Elliott Smith is beautiful.
