Josh Garvelink is an indie-folk singer songwriter from Grand Rapids, Michigan. He is inspired by the acoustic styles of Nick Drake and Joni Mitchell and the songwriting of Bruce Springsteen, Sufjan Stevens and more. Josh writes songs that combine the personal with storytelling, touching on spirituality, working class life, the big picture in the world and the small alike.
”Boy Scout” is the latest release from this journeyman singer with much to offer the world. He sings with real pain and his honest stories resonate through the experience. Josh sings with regret of not learning how to be a sailor or boy scout. He perhaps wishes that he had that knowledge that all schoolchildren should learn.
This is a very soothing indie-pop song from the Michigan singer-songwriter who is in sterling form here on ”Boy Scout”. A deep track with lots of tailored stories that dig at our heart-strings. This young artist is slowly rising up and is a pleasure to listen to such well-crafted music.
