Next Guest: Jade Day, Singer-Songwriter

Jade Day will be our next guest on The Armadillo Podcast and if you'll take the time to listen to this upcoming episode, you too will probably give up the once-popular sport of swatting at singer-songwriters. Like the clubbing of baby seals, this practice has got to stop.
In all seriousness, you owe it to yourself to give this guy a listen. His latest EP, Chimera, is available on iTunes and you can always listen to a sample of his work before purchasing. Click here to check out the four songs on Chimera:
