Whitley: The Submarine

Whitley, a singer-songwriter form Mlebourne, Australia, is only 22. He is into folk, mixing traditional Aussie sounds with the Mississippi folk instrument the steel lap guitar (dobro), courtesy of his collaborator Nick Huggins. Hi songs are like gentle waves, with unexpected undercurrents. None of the Xavier Rudd hoopla on his debut album The Submarine. Whitely uses spare instrumentation, not wanting to choke his songs with tons of layers. Less is indeed more.
