"The overall effect is to make you want to lay back on a warm summer evening and be transported into a space that is just about one foot above where your body really is." ~Kane Taylor. Positively Entertainment and Dining
Wm. "Scott" Browning began his musical career in the early nineties performing with the Bellingham rock act The Blind Willies. After enjoying some regional success with the independent album "Black Coffee and Rust" and its single "Christina" the band dissolved to pursue individual interests. For Scott this meant creating music in the more traditional "singer/songwriter" mold. The first such effort, "The Lonely West," is an ep that is anything BUT traditional. This quirky, avante-garde blues recording paved the way for "...A Little Bit More Lucky," nine tales told with an acoustic guitar.
"...A Little Bit More Lucky" was recorded to capture Scott's live one-man energy but the album is accented by several of the finest musicians in the Portland, OR area. John Vecchiarelli contributes subtle drumming and William Joersz adds to the low-end with bass on several tracks while Portland's Kory Quinn and Bellingham's Jay Irwin chime in with occasional harmonica. The effect is an album that vacillates between sparsely brooding and warmly full.
