Mutual Benefit is the solo project of singer-songwriter Jordan Lee, and his latest album “Skip a Sinking Stone” is a gorgeous collection of orchestral folk songs. This album isn’t that different from Lee’s previous six albums, but on this record he really has refined his sound, and that shows in both the songwriting and the performances. Although this album at time may pull at your heart strings in a rather sad way, it’s definitely worth the listen for sure, and I anticipate Lee expanding further on his sound on his next studio release.
