Why is Ray LaMontagne not insanely popular?



Dude is one of the best artists of our time, and I don't say that lightly. He's amazing. His songs are incredible, which makes me wonder why he isn't as popular as John Mayer or other singer/songwriters.

If you've never listened, check out this song:
Henry Nearly Killed Me - Live

Can't stand that voice. I thought it was an old lady the first time I heard it.

I guess I just love that raspy voice, especially in the link I posted. Dude is legit.

Is it a cover of the Cat Stevens song, or just a very similar song?

I absolutely love his music and love the raspy voice, but I can understand how it might annoy some people.

I've always enjoyed his music. He has a great voice and is a pretty good lyricist.
