Nick Drake
Nick Drake (Nicholas Rodney Drake, Rangoon, Burma, June 19, 1948 - Tanworth-in-Arden, England, November 25, 1974) was an English folk singer known for his gentle, enigmatic songs and his virtuosic right-hand finger picking technique. Although he recorded only three albums, critics and fellow musicians hold his work in very high esteem. Drake failed to find a wide audience during his lifetime and had a strong aversion to performing. Since his death, however, Drake's music has gained a significant cult following.

Letters from the Road (2015 B-Side Demo) - from the album, The Wild Youthful Days of Basement Studio Demos
This was a rare b-side demo that was originally going to appear on my old band's final album together, but it never made the cut, and since then it's been sitting in my music vault until it was recently unearthed for the recently released b-sides/rarities/unreleased demos album series known as "The Wild Youthful Days of Basement Studio Demos" and will eventually be re-recorded, remixed, remastered, rewritten and reproduced again as a standalone new single coming out either later this year or in early 2021. This was about my struggles and my journey getting through some difficult times and writing those letters to someone I once cared about who ended up hurting me and eventually, living on the road took its toll on me mentally and emotionally but I was still living to try to prove that person wrong, and eventually finding peace. It had that Pink Floyd vibe to it, so I hope you enjoy this version of the song. Can't wait to show you what I'll be doing next with the standalone single version coming out soon.more
