Download "Tell Sarah" by We/Or/Me (Right-click or control-click to save to your computer).

Bahhaj Taherzadeh is a singer-songwriter from Chicago who's just put together a gorgeous EP of spare but emotionally wrenching acoustic songs called Ghostwriter. Taherzadeh, who records and performs under the name We/Or/Me, sings with a wise and slightly weary voice, strolling through delicate melodies and heartbreaking narratives reminiscent of Scottish folk artist Bert Jansch or Leonard Cohen. Taherzadeh keeps the instrumentation to a minimum, adding occasional female harmonies or a simple piano line to gently strummed guitars.

This beautiful little song from Ghostwriter is called "Tell Sarah."
