“Wander Songs” from Halifax based musician Don Brownrigg was released in 2007. Finally 6 years later Don has returned to the East Coast music scene with a new album, “It Takes All Kinds” (to make this world, I find) and a new record deal from Tiny Records Canada.
With the help of well known East Coast Music Award producer Daniel Ledwell, the album took two years to record and not only did Don write all the songs but he sang, played guitar, keyboard and accordion on the record as well. The recently released album consists of songs that are vibrant and honest and it forces the listener to think about the good and the bad of our deepest feelings and emotions. I expect that Don Brownrigg must have experienced some of life’s greatest ups and downs during the 6years in between albums as you cannot help but overhear the hurt and hope in, It Takes All Kinds.
“It Takes All Kinds”(to make this world, I find) is an album with beautiful slow songs that make you think and a few upbeat catchy hook laden songs which will find you humming the tunes and perhaps even dancing in your kitchen.
As an artist Don Brownrigg is an expert on stage, his deep, soulful tone is filled with wisdom and his storytelling as a singer songwriter has garnered him a fan base all over Canada. He has already toured Europe, the United States and Canada with incredible musicians such as Shawn Colvin, The Great Lake Swimmers and Serena Ryder to name a few but I honestly believe that this 2013 release will make Don Brownrigg a household name. ~Fleur Mainville, The News
