Check out his website for sound clips or go to Amazon or CD Universe to listen to clips of the whole album. He is also has a MySpace.
The CD is very strong mainly because of his voice and the quality of his intepretations of classic songs such as "I Found A Love" etc. He is curently touring and appears on the same bill as Joss Stone, Jon Cleary and John Legend. If you want to hear him in concert then tune into NPR who recorded a show earlier this year.
