Here's what people have been saying about it...
Potter’s songwriting and vocal style puts him squarely in a unique class of musician that transcends trends. Like a modern day Tom Waits, this heartwrenching single is reminiscent of Pall Jenkins from The Black Heart Procession, another favorite of Strawberry Tongue.
“I never did know where I was going.” Austin Potter, a.k.a. Tapes & Tubes, channels his inner Leonard Cohen on his latest single, “So Long as I Have You”. Gravelly, weathered vocals lay down contemplative prose over the gentle strum of a guitar and hints of feedback. The track is off a new full-length album that Potter is currently working on.
