jimlesses Great songs, with lyrics that have depth and meaning, beautifully rendered with thoughtful instrumentation and melodies, and all performed with heart and feeling. It's A Beautiful Life, Out The Light, Forgiveness Is Hard, and so many other fine songs make this a delight to listen to over and over again. Favorite track: A Cloud on the Summer Sun.

RYNO // 라이노 Niall is on my short list of favorite songwriters. He might be the most sincere performer I've ever seen as well. The soundtrack for the corner of my longing mind, resembling a tiny snowed-in house - replete with obligatory warm fire, cup of tea, and plenty of time to sleep - is always Niall. Favorite track: Sea Area Forecast.
