Austin singer songwriter Bill Callahan’s lo-fi and alt-country indie rock is more than two decades old. The Maryland-native assumed the moniker "Smog" to release his first dozen albums before switching to pen his vivid, coolly-intoned narratives under his own name in 2007.

On Wednesday night, Callahan takes to the Allen Room at Jazz At Lincoln Center as part of the American Songbook series, which enters its final stretch this week. The intimate, if swanky, digs might just prove to be the perfect setting to capture all of the nuance and simplicity behind the enigmatic singer's quietly-disarming compositions.

Download Callahan’s “Baby’s Breath,” from his 2011 album Apocalypse, above and watch the animated music video for his song “America!” below.
