The right-handed performer often sings using a guitar and a loop pedal instead of a back band.

"I don't feel like there's anything interesting or new about seeing a singer-songwriter with a band behind them," he once explained. "I don't feel like if I suddenly got a band, everyone would go, 'Wow!'. I actually feel it'd take away from me."

However,  he may have to resort to such a scenario given the injury.
