DC Does TX Spotlight - Vandaveer

XM Cafe has called Mark Charles Heidinger "this generation's Nick Drake" and The Washington Post has called him "a world-weary wayfaring minstrel with shoe-leather vocal cords and breathy Dylanesque folk tunes rife with imagery cribbed from Testaments both Old and New." Sounds about right to us. Vandaveer's darkest moments will haunt your dreams and his brighter moments will gracefully combine young and old for a sound full of nostalgia and ennui.

Check out a free download that NPR made available as part of their Austin 100 .

Also, check out the interview that Mark did with Spinner here.
