Best Songwriter 

Caleb Travers

With heart-on-his-sleeve, real-world honesty, a slightly gritty baritone and the ability to paint believable portraits of love gone wrong, Caleb Travers' brand of twang-tinged Americana calls to mind Beck's breakup masterpiece Sea Change — but with a fervor and style all his own. Travers' songs tell stories of everyday life in a way that seems romantic but not over-idealized or -dramatized. The rootsy laments on Caleb Travers & Big City Lights' 2007 debut Blue Weathered Dreams are fueled by staggering acoustic strums and solitary harmonica, but Travers' vivid storytelling style and eminently relatable subject matter are what make these songs hit home hard.
