For the past two years running, local troubadour Tyler Fortier has been a finalist in EWs "Next Big Thing” singles competition, and if his most recent work is any indication of his progress as an artist its only a matter of time before the guy takes the cake. "Its possible to evolve while standing still,” EW wrote of his fourth album, Love Is Fleeting, going on to say that "as this record makes clear, Fortier has matured both as a songwriter and a performerÄ Strings, a whisper of piano or string here and there, and occasional drum work that chugs and snaps like the wheels of a train bound for Folsom Prison.” Fortier plays with Austin and Jenckes at 7pm Sunday, Jan. 23, at Cozmic Pizza; $5.
