Grey Reverend's voice is somewhat familar, having such a strong tone of voice that even when he mumbles through the majority of his lines you can clearly hear the dark lyrics he intones. With sounds similar to a milkshake of Elliott Smith, Bon Iver and Jose Gonzalez, his music is solely acoustic based. However I can still hear small influences of jazz and blues within his tracks.
My favourite song is Begging to Borrow - as Grey Reverend demonstrates his brilliant ability to play on words, as well as emphasising certain lyrics in order to emotionally amplify his songs. In particular his last sentence of this song really has an impact on you with his words,
'isn't it something, when you've got nothing left to say'
