Barna Howard – Promise I Wont Laugh

Missouri’s Barna Howard  weaves gentle narrative on his “Promise I Won’t Laugh,” single debut that I’m finding to be one damn beautiful song.  You can hear his influences as he seems to wear them on his sleeve here (Young, Van Zandt much?) as he sings simple music that sounds extremely earnest, heartfelt and engaging.

His self-titled record was recorded in Portland in a basement studio and set to be released 2/21.
