This is my first introduction to Austin-based Brandon Luedtke. He makes americana/folk music with a nice hint of blues.
His lyrics are poignant, straightforward and engaging. The music is very skillfully put together with mandolins, cellos and harps all lending their sounds to transport you to another time and place.
This albums transcends my normal views on this type of music (I know this is blasphemy but I only like a few Dylan tunes, just not a big fan). How's that for a sound bite, "Better than Dylan!"
Anyone can enjoy this at any time, anywhere. Regardless of your background. You can be sitting around a campfire, wearing headphones or on a cross country road trip. You can be in your office, at the gym or at home with the family.
It will move you. It will speak to you in some way. Something that a lot of music doesn't seem to do anymore.
I look forward to hearing more from him in the future.
Enjoy. I know I did.
