This is brilliant. Was gonna post it in cover thread.
If there's a guy who could/should garner a huge following, it would be Ben Howard. Not that anyone's bothered about it, it's just I think he's really good. I reckon it's more about the live show these days. He's toured America a bit. If you get chance to see, go see.
I'm not really one for the singer-songwriter types, normally find it a bit 'mushy', for lack of a better word; but, his album - "Every Kingdom", was one of the best of last year, probably my favourite.
