Hank Compton's EP 'Kill What We Love' will pull at your heartstrings

Hank Compton's EP 'Kill What We Love' will pull at your heartstrings

 Male songwriters are having a moment right now- or at least, I'm hearing so many good ones these days that when a particularly fantastic one comes on shuffle, it takes me by surprise. Hank Compton is one of those surprises. Kill What We Love, the songwriter's new EP, demonstrates an extraordinary depth of character and emotion in his calm yet intensely vivid vocal performances. Every song is accompanied by a delightful and unique neo-folk arrangement. It wouldn't be a bold suggestion to place Compton in the same category as artists like New England's Henry Jamison and the UK's Lewis Watson. I'll be waiting anxiously to hear more from my new favorite young male songwriter, but until then, you should do yourself a favor and out Kill What We Love on repeat. -Geena Kloeppel
