Jason Collett on the creation of "Papercut Hearts"

Jason Collett is a Canadian musician who's been part of Broken Social Scene and is currently pursuing his own fantastic solo avenues. After seeing him open for Josh Rouse last September, I was impressed by his detailed lyrical imagery, and his lovely voice that had an unexpectedly sharp, raw, piercing crackle to it.

Collett's 2008 album Here's To Being Here is out now on Arts & Crafts (Feist, Stars, Apostle of Hustle). I hear hints of Dylan's drawl in his own unique combination of rootsy warmth and modern sparkle. This video was recently posted on his site; listen to the story behind the evolution of his song "Papercut Hearts."

The title of the song conveys more than the full lyrics of some. I'm so fond of his work. Thank you.
