Down The Line

by Marlin Brackett

Alternative country, adult Americana. Marlin Brackett is a gifted songwriter who has found his voice on Down the Line. Backed by the Georgia Satellites on most of the tracks, the music has just the right amount of twang and the right amount of swagger.

Album Notes
Submitted for your approval: one Marlin Brackett, a general contractor hailing from Marietta, who has been writing songs on the side for some two and a half years now. His first Open Mic at Eddie's Attic was just over two years ago, not long after he changed his focus from playing guitar to writing. Listening to good songwriters, he said, has always been one of his great loves, and Eddie's Attic seemed like a natural environment for him.
Brackett won first place and the weekly $60 prize this past Monday. He commented on the effect of having different judges from week to week: "Sometimes I feel like the judging is partial, sometimes I feel like it's good. Two weeks ago, I thought they did a real good job judging."

He continued, "Jess [electric guitarist Jess Hopkins] and I were practicing for that night, and we just felt like we had a crack at it, so we picked some powerful-type songs. He was accompanying me, and I kind of pushed him hard, and we did it."

On June 5, Brackett will wade back into the fray for the semiannual Open Mic Shootout. The $1,000 prize would go a long way toward financing one of his dreams-recording an album of his music, which he describes as "original countryrockahillbillybluzegrass." Pretty much says it all, doesn't it? "The musical roots that I have from my dad-he played a mix of country and pop, mostly country. I like bluegrass, so I play some of that, but I also like most types, mainly acoustic," he mused.

Walt Morgan

As a writer, every now and then I hear a song and immediately wish I had writen it. This cd has several like that. I can't get enough of "Jump The Track" and "Convicts Heart". Great job Marlin. I'll be looking for your next cd.

A Rare Find
This is an original and genuine version of an otherwise very familiar melodic sound. Excellent arrangements and lyrics make this CD an underground classic that has seemingly slipped through the cracks from being well known and famous. In short, this album is an undiscovered masterpiece of great songs flawlessly exucuted.
