Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

DAVE BOUTETTE

The Piccolo Heart

2007-07-23

Ann Arbor musician Dave Boutette gives us a nice batch of folk tunes, often served up with a wry smile, ala John Prine. His singing and playing sound earnest, like he's very concerned you have a good time listening to him and get the meaning and the jokes. At times, he strikes me as Ron Sexsmith without the high falsetto voice. He starts out with more of a folk-rock tune, "Dime in Hand," before settling down to some storytelling. "Why No One to Love?' is a Stephen Foster number. He plays in town from time to time, so you can catch him up close and personal.- MJVD
