Like Nick Drake before him, Elliott Smith made a living making introspective and often morose songs. Smith touched many a soul by digging inside of his own. Sadly, as much as he sang of his depression, he was unable to control it and like so many artists he died young. As one of the most celebrated songwriters of his time, he could receive a shot, but our feeling is that Nick Drake would have to get in first.
