Editors’ Notes He may look like a humble folk singer with a beard, cap and guitar, but James Hoffman digs up unexpected treasures on his second album. Songs like “Wish You Well” and “In Your Eyes” dwell on the fragility of love, but he’s never mawkish about it. It’s as if each romantic tragedy is an opportunity to learn something or see the world differently. Hoffman’s mellow, unhurried vocals slide over super-melodic tunes that pop and crackle with plucked strings and wafting piano figures.
