In my Debut show, I introduced Izera - a street busker that was very approachable and happy who provided me with some music.

The response to his songs that I received was overwhelmingly positive.

People asked for more information, so I'm posting some here:

A non-facebook contact page: http://www.izera.com.au/

From AdelaideNow's article on Buskers in Adelaide:

Izera Stephen has never had any musical training and can't read a note of music.
"I just play from the heart. I really can't explain how I do what I do, but I just do it and people seem to respond to it," Izera, 36, said.
"Little children really like it and I'm constantly amazed by the number of elderly people that not only stop to listen, but come up and do a little dance," he said.
Izera wants to become a vocalist and believes busking is a great way for people to master the pressures of performing in public: "Playing in the mall is great because you don't always have a captive audience. It's a lot easier than performing in a club or something where all eyes are on you and people have paid to see you entertain them."

I'll be adding a few youtube videos of some of his songs after this post.

A sample of Izera's spontaneous style when he's out busking (No I don't know why the guy couldn't stand still while filming):
