I'll Never Drown

Tim Fite has one of the more interesting introductions to his biography that I've seen in awhile.
Tim Fite was one of the small number of babies born between 1975 and 1983 without any blood. Although seemingly healthy, his veins were as dry as his bones. Most of the other babies with this condition were immediately quarantined, and later dissected by leading scientists to determine the cause of such an anomaly (generally to no avail and in extreme secrecy). Tim Fite, however, survived the pokings and proddings of multiple rounds of clandestine-testing, and was eventually hooked up to a machine. The machine that gave him his blood.
Huh. Interesting. Well his bio goes on to talk about his genre-hopping past albums under different aliases. What these aliases are I don't know. His newest album Gone Ain't Gone was released in September. The sound is backwoods country akin to M. Ward but without the glossier production. Fite's voice is every bit old-timey radio. Listen to a couple mp3s and figure it out.
