Louise (2018) by William Melville (Genre: Folk): 

I stumbled across this album, in the Freegal Music Catalog, while doing research for this blog posting.

But I do know this EP sounds great and is his first release! The album features seven modern folk tunes including: Louise, First year, Text You, News Feed and 52 Delaware.
