When The Brokedown give you a heads up on rising new artists, you best take notice. Such is the case with Los Angeles based singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Scott Claassen. Embracing both the quirkiness of early Tom Waits, and songrwritng prowess of Warren Zevon, this guy is one to watch. Like Athens, GA’s HAM1, Claassen is offering up his debut album, Monterey, for download on his Web site. Free for a limited time.
