Growing up in Minnesota, like a lot of kids from that state, Stuart Davis wanted to play hockey. That is, until his father bought him a guitar. Davis' early studio album's were mostly acoustic efforts. On his 2001 self-titled album, Davis recorded with a full band, which gave his always clever lyrics some pop. That album's "The Ladder," a tune about evolution, contains some brilliant lyrical content, including this passage: "I'm the ******* child The one who got The head of Einstein And the soul of Pol Pot There's no compassion But I can split the atom." I've seen and talked to Davis several times, and he couldn't have been more friendly. A nice, intelligent, and funny guy. "The Ladder" is one of my many favorites from him.

He is pretty much an indie guy over here, with a smaller but loyal fan base.

I am truly unfamiliar with this artist. It was weird. He is like a performance artist.

He's pretty much an indie artist. I've seen him in a couple of actual music venues, but mostly in coffee shops in Boulder. I've never seen that video until tonight. It was kind of neat.
