CD reviews for Pieta Brown

Paradise Outlaw CD review - Paradise Outlaw
If Pieta Brown had any reticence about following her father, singer/songwriter Greg Brown, into the family business, it certainly hasn't shown in her stellar catalog to date. Brown has typically leaned toward a more sparsely appointed soundtrack for her ephemeral folk tunes. That formula holds true on her sixth release, "Paradise Outlaw," but her banjo maintains an unexpectedly high profile, as ever present as husband/producer Bo Ramsey's slinky and effectively reverbed guitar lines. »»»
Mercury CD review - Mercury
The first thing you notice about Pieta Brown is her breathlessly charming folk-country vocals. Then comes the irresistible lyrics wrapped in simple, warm melodies performed by some of Nashville's best session guys. By the end of Brown's 13-song effort, it's obvious that she-and this album-is something special. Sometimes playful, other times alluring and occasionally pouty, Brown bounces from the emotive intimacy of I'm Gone to the dreamy, trippy world of Night All Day then to »»»
Shimmer CD review - Shimmer
The daughter of Greg Brown, Pieta Brown is known for her rootsy blending of folk, rock, blues and country. Here, her usual musical style takes a back seat the lyrics of her new songs. It seems like a reasonable approach, given that Brown has a compelling sense of both poetry and narrative, and her songs are well-crafted little stories. Recorded by producer Don Was, the tracks are stripped down to occasional guitar chords, production that lends honesty and intimacy to the project. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: LSD tour provides a lot of highs – This was not your grandkids' country, that's for sure. Even the name of the tour - the LSD Tour - was a throwback (albeit far before the principals were making music). But make no mistake about it. With the ever cool country traditionalist Dwight Yoakam, the country with some rock and blues and rabble rousing of Steve Earle thrown in and the... »»»
Concert Review: Alvin, Gilmore fortunately get together – Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore had known each other for decades, but it wasn't until last year that they toured together in a guitar pull setting. What started as a small Texas tour mushroomed into points east and west and eventually the release earlier this month of their blues-based disc, "Downey to Lubbock." And now we have the... »»»

Tyminski goes dark Dan Tyminski (known simply as "Tyminski" on his 2017 release "Southern Gothic") has traditional music roots and unassailable bluegrass street cred especially given his membership in Alison Krauss' Union Station.

Washburn, Fleck create "Echoes" Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have powerhouse individual talents; each has followed an estimable career path to where they find themselves today: making complex, but spare, records, writing music together and touring with their son Juno.

Bigger CD review - Bigger
Sugarland is back with "Bigger," its first studio album in nearly a decade. And its arrival says more about branding, than anything else. Although his voice is heard often enough on this album to make his presence felt, it's still difficult to get away from seeing Kristian Bush in the Oates to Hall or Ridgeley to Michael role in this duo.  »»»
