KRUU host Keith DeBoer has an informal afternoon chat with Gavin Jones. A singer-songwriter whose sound has been described as a sweet, soft, and unique acoustic folk that shares a melodic lineage with Jeff Buckley, Bon Iver and James Vincent McMorrow. His gentle falsetto and soaring melodies lead listeners to a silent contentment and takes them on a journey through the human heart. His album, called simply, The Fountain, features homespun tales of relationships, nature, God, honesty, frailty and strength. A rare and perfect intersection of heart, mind, wood, string and a voice that explores the depths of our universal soul.
