Caught Sean Hayes at the Mystic on Sunday. The guy’s got such a great voice. Especially live. If you haven’t grabbed his new LP grab it now. So, so, so good. The other four tracks below are new ones that’ve popped up this week, begging for a sunny weekend. If you have one, enjoy the fork out of it.
