While his album didn’t make my list of favorites from 2015, Dustin Kensrue’s Of Crows and Crowns was probably my favorite song of the year.
In truth, it’s one of the most beautiful songs I’ve heard. I don’t know if I know of a more skilled lyricist out there. His lyrics as a part of Thrice are wonderful as are his solo lyrics (and worship music). If you are actively looking for thoughtful well crafted music, visit his site
