Bernard Fanning: Tea & Sympathy

Let's take 1 part Allman Brothers Band and 1 part Jack Johnson and let's leave another part as a mystery component. It's that chemical x that separates Bernard Fanning from his counterparts (not to disparage Jack Johnson--you've got to love Jack).
Fanning laces beautiful riffs and stunning, slightly raspy vocals that combine to recall an easy-going, southern-comfort-type feel. Actually, Fanning comes from our friends down under, the former singer for the band Powderfinger.

The record has received mixed reviews but I find the album more impressive the more I listen. Although it took a while for the record to get here (it was released in October 2005), it has been wildly popular in Australia, reaching #1 in its first week.

Buy the record, Tea & Sympathy.

Listen to Wish You Well.
