Poor other doctors.
Watson’s endearing, beautifully delicate music makes it pretty easy to come to terms with one’s own antiquated feelings of inadequacy though. His soulful vocals and stripped-down, rootsy, guitar-based songs strike an affecting balance between subtle R+B and your traditional emotive new folk that easily pulls you in as a listener.
Though Watson’s now on the British imprint of a major label, he rose to prominence through what’s now become a fairly familiar method—posting videos of himself covering other people’s music on YouTube, gaining particular recognition for his cover of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car”.
Listen to the almost-title lead track from his new EP, The Wild, “Into the Wild” below and then download another wonderful cover he’s recorded—”Hold On” originally by London-based electronic artist, SBTRKT.
