Songs You May Have Missed #25


Tyler Ramsey: “Stay Gone” (2011)

My 2011 award for Best Neil Young (or Best young Neil) impersonation goes to this doleful ditty. The Asheville, North Carolina native Ramsey could make a living as a Neil Young tribute act if his own singer-songwriter career doesn’t pan out. And he doesn’t just have the voice, he also has the same relaxed delivery. Doesn’t belt the chorus, just lets the song sing itself, like Neil does on his gentler stuff. Beautiful song.
