The recommendation from Alan Sparhawk: “I think {David Bazan of Pedro the Lion} is one of the best songwriters in history. Because I write music, I end up being very critical of other songs – I think most writers are like that. David always blows me away with his lyrical deapth and ease at storytelling. Plus he can play anything and knows how to make great sounding records.”
