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: Lambert refuses to rest on laurels – Watching this stop on Miranda Lambert's "Livin' Like Hippies Tour," one is struck by just how many great songs the country singer/songwriter already has in her repertoire. With most artists, it's relatively easy to guess which song a performer will choose to close a show. But Lambert has so many winners to pick from, many... »»»
Concert Review: DBT rocks on – Drive-By Truckers still sometimes get miscategorized as alt.-country, but who's kidding whom? With three electric guitarists upfront exchanging hard rock licks all night, this is a blistering Southern rock band. Hitting the stage just before 10, the band played a satisfying 2-hour-plus set. At 11:40, Patterson Hood announced the band would be... »»»

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.

Staggered CD review - Staggered
East Nashville may be known as "the" Americana hotbed these days, but some of the talent there is very much verging on rock 'n roll. This is the case with Lynn Taylor & the BarFlies on their third release, a collection of personal tunes by the front man. »»»
American Folk soundtrack CD review - American Folk soundtrack
The soundtrack for the independent film, "American Folk," stars two real-life singer-songwriters played by Joe Purdy and Amber Rubarth, who also contribute the bulk of the material on the soundtrack.

Rifles and Rosary Beads CD review - Rifles and Rosary Beads
Mary Gauthier has built her career on honest, sometimes brutally and achingly self-confessional songs. This is the first time that she has focused on experiences other than her own, and it could become not only the strongest album of her career but, in its own way, a landmark album. »»»
Work CD review - Work
Matt Hectorne's new album - his third solo effort - offers another example of the rewards that can come through the joy of discovery. While Hectorne makes no attempt to bend the boundaries as far as a patented Americana sound is concerned, the success he achieves here is the result of him doing quite the opposite, that is, sounding like a revered veteran who mastered the form quite quickly in his career.  »»»
