Area singer/songwriter Conner Cherland recently released his debut album, Wanting Man, for free online( The six-song record is brief, but the songs carry a disproportionate weight thanks to crafty lyrics and layers of sound. Cherland shows off impressive guitar chops, which he uses to alternate with his wholesome voice, and both are presented with a steadfast confidence and glimpses of pride, though not in excess. His songs focus on interpersonal relationships, both good and bad, and there’s an underlying sense of self-consciousness at the root of each. You can see Cherland play at numerous regional wineries in June, so sip and listen in.
