ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Music with spirit. Music akin to roots, folk, blues, and country, Don Brownrigg is a musician's musician...

Halifax based Newfoundlander Don Brownrigg's musical meanderings are catalogued on his debut release Wander Songs - a recording of non assuming folk-pop music that has spirit and is sincere and heartfelt in it's delievery. Brownrigg blends folk, blues and country with his haunting voice, morose melodies and pensive writing.

"...takes the listener in instantly and, like a good novel, keeps you captivated from beginning to end. Acoustic based, the songs don't try too hard and aren't intimidating in any way - it's just beautiful, truthfully written music." (The Telegram, St. John's, NL)

Wander Songs, a "prolific musical anthology" (The Coast) and "timeless anthology of thoughts" ( ChartAttack) is 11 songs of pensive, self-reflective, and morose imagery. Produced by Brownrigg, this very grass-roots project features many of his friends and some of Canada's finest musicians providing instrumentation and backing vocals, and was recorded in Halifax by Donald Mackay at Spaces Between Sound Studio.

In September of 2007 Wander Songs was released to a crowded and eager Khyber Club in Halifax. Toronto's (weewerk) records picked up the record for a national re-release in May, 2008.

CDBABY named 'Wander Songs' their #1 Editor's pick for 'Folky Pop' albums.

2008 East Coast Music Award Nominations: 'Folk Recording of the Year' & 'CBC Galaxie Rising Star Recording of the Year'.

'The Coast' (Halifax, NS) named Wander Songs as one of their top 50 CDs of 2007.

Exclaim! says "Don Brownrigg lays his old soul to tape on this gorgeous collection that reveals great songwriting craft and taste"

ChartAttack says of Wander Songs: "Brownrigg has created a timeless anthology"

The Coasts (Halifax, NS) says "Wander Songs is a prolific musical anthology of thought"

The Telegram (St. John's, NL) says Wander Songs is a "masterful and enchanting debut"

Eye Weekly (Toronto, ON) says "Brownrigg's songwriting is consistently strong"

I fail to see much of a comparison to M.Ward.Don's songs are very original and the entire cd is a great work of a very talented group.I will also be recommending this cd.

Hi Donald,
I am from the Valley as well and got this site from Jessica. I just received your cd on Wednesday and listened to it a couple times already. It is a wonderful cd, I am amazed at how much talent is from the Valley. You have an amazing voice and I enjoy listening to your music. I wish you well in the sales of your cd. I will do my best in promoting it to my family. Good luck

heck yes
Don is a heck of a dude who makes heck of good songs. I'm privileged to have him on my new album, which you can also get from CDbaby... but this isn't about me. Just don't front on Don, his talent is large.

Eric

listening as I write this...
I bought this album on a whim, seeing that it was recommended to M. Ward fans. It's an apt comparison, but different enough that I don't feel like I'm listening to a clone. It's a nice, relaxing album with some catchy songs that are easy to sing or hum along to. I'll be recommending this to a lot of my friends.

Wander Songs
In Thunder Bay - local CBC station just played a song from this cd - jotted down "this weather system is called regret ... while you name names and lay waste ..." and luckily the radio host gave the name, Don Brownrigg, and Wander Songs. Magical lyrics, feel like the words/travelling observations have been inside my skull for a long time and all it took was hearing this song to bring them out safely. Tender though. No roadkill left without a prayer and a tobacco offering for the spirit that lingers.
