USA, 2000, singer-songwriter / indie pop

Elliott SmithFigure 8: Elliott is one of those artists who you often see referred to as a life-saver, as in his music helped people out so much that it helped them make sense of their pain and alienation, etc etc, and perhaps put them on a healthier life path. Despite my rough childhood, growing up without love or empathy, I’ve never been able to say that music has saved my life. Elliott is an excellent songwriter, however, with so much pathos and honesty packed into every track, so I guess I can see how some people have looked to him as their savior.
