There's a reason his voice is like that... conor oberst has basically created his own genre, i like to think. Conor's voice is an acquired taste, but he explains it perfectly himself, as quoted from one of his songs: "I could have been a famous singer if I had someone else's voice, but failures always sounded better. So let's fuck it up boys, and make some noise."- explaination of Conor Oberst's[Monsters of Folk] voice To the world you maybe one person but to one person you maybe the world. And the worst part is; before it gets any better we're headed for a cliff, and in the free fall i realize Im better off when i hit the bottom.
