I suppose you may have guessed that writer Josh Hurst is an occasional correspondent of mine. I don't recall precisely when we started exchanging musical ideas (I'm sure it was either his writing about Joe Henry or Sam Phillips that initially tipped me off to his work), but we have kept in touch over the years. He is the tireless curator of his own music review site The Hurst Review and often contributes to Christianity Today and several other publications.
You are not likely to find a more eloquent dissector of Joe Henry's work. Further proving this point, he has now written what will almost certainly be the definitive analysis of Reverie.
Happily, he and I will both be in LA next week for JH's record release show at Largo, giving me yet another reason to be excited for the trip.
