Hails From: Portland, Ore.
Song: 'The Hippie Girl'
Album: Chasing Away the Dots [iTunes] [Amazon]
Sounds Like: M. Ward, Apples in Stereo
In His Words: "Portland is one of those liberal towns that has its fair share of free spirits. This is my ode to one of my favorite types. You know her, she isn't afraid to be happy, laughs loudly, makes her own soap, writes poetry or songs, plays the saw. You're at once attracted to and frightened of her. Oh, and she's the artsy hippie girl type, not the stinky one with the dog."
