My teacher the musician

So yesterday I started researching a musician who's coming to Jasper next week. I was set to interview him in a couple of hours and figured I should see what he's all about. First, I hit YouTube to watch some of his videos. I was totally digging his tribal, reggae-inspired tunes, but felt like there was something familiar about him -- something more than the fact that he is looks and performs music much like that of Xavier Rudd.
After listening to four or five of his songs, I turned to Google to read some articles about him. Then, as I was reading one published in the Vancouver Sun, I realized why I knew him.
