Vic Chesnutt
An immense loss. Folk-Rock Singer/Songwriter James Victor “Vic” Chesnutt died Christmas Day at the age of 45 from what it appears to be a suicide from an overdose of muscle relaxants. His musical style can be described as a “skewed, refracted version of Americana that is haunting, funny, poignant, and occasionally mystical, usually all at once”.

“An adoptee, Chesnutt was raised in Zebulon, Georgia, where he first started writing songs at the age of 5. At 18, a car accident left him partially paralyzed, though it wasn’t long afterward that he realized he could still play guitar. After his recovery he left Zebulon and moved to Nashville, Tennessee; the poetry he read there (by Stevie Smith, Walt Whitman, Wallace Stevens, W. H. Auden, Stephen Crane, and Emily Dickinson) served to inspire and influence him. Chesnutt stated his atheism since age 13.” – Wikipedia
