Raking through the plethora of singer-songwriters to find those worth listening to can feel a lot like drowning in faux earnest, over-emoted tears, which is why it's always extra pleasant to find one like Garrett Pierce. Someone who understands real folk shouldn't blandly wash around in the background, but affect you in a deep, earthy way "without knowing quite why."

'Everbody Breaks' is the lead track on his new EP, an overspill from a forthcoming album, and though short, the delicate guitar, moving sentiment and gospel-inspired drums pack a mighty little two minute punch.

'Everybody Breaks' comes out on Narnack Records October 18th, 2011.
