Iron & Wine is the stage name used by Samuel Beam an American folk rock singer-songwriter. He said his stage name came from a dietary supplement named “Beef Iron & Wine” that he found in a general store. Weird! I admired the name more before I got to know its origins hehehe! Well I guess inspiration can come from everywhere right?
I got to know Iron & Wine’s music through the film Twilight with the song Flightless Bird, American Mouth which everyone knows and loves. So I searched for more of his music and instantly feel in love with Naked as We Came from the album Our Endless Numbered Days released in 2004. This is one of the songs I use to calm me down whenever I’m stressed. In fact I made a list of calm relaxing songs to listen to while reading books. Would you like me to share the list (just the artists name and titles of the songs)?
The video is…interesting I’d say.
