The third studio long player from the English singer/songwriter who first turned heads in 2008 as the co-writer of "Let Me Sign," which was performed by actor Robert Pattinson during a pivotal scene in the first installment the immensely popular Twilight trilogy, Ode to Thinking was made possible via a very successful PledgeMusic campaign. Stark, soulful, and bucolic, Long's emotionally charged voice and rich, melodic songwriting style evokes the work of his heroes, who include Elliott Smith, Leonard Cohen, and Bob Dylan. ~ James Christopher Monger
