MP3 At 3PM: David Gergen

For a solo artist to garner comparisons to greats like Nick Cave, Nick Drake and Leonard Cohen is quite a tall order, yet Los Angeles native David Gergen manages to do just that with his self-released fourth release, The Nearer It Was…The Farther It Became (out January 18). And he has no high-end producers or backing band to thank for it, because Gergen is as solo as a solo artist gets, doing all the writing and work on the album himself—including recording it in his own home studio. Download twangy acoustic number “The Streets I’m Walkin’” below.
