"On The Jessamine County Book of the Living, singer-songwriter Matt Bauer might be backed by tasteful, sweeping string arrangements, but it’s his delicate, gentle voice that makes the deepest impact. Bauer sings in a near whisper, his voice quivering as he trails his lines off into the ether. He doesn’t just wear his heart on his sleeve, he practically hands it to you. And while that sounds like the album is weighted down with a glut of melodrama, it’s not, as there’s great poeticism throughout each track."
