ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"She's smart, funny and, quite possibly, the outspoken heir to the Ani DiFranco throne." - St. Petersburg Times.

In Lorna Bracewell's latest release, Flowers on the Chains, the artist throws down her musical and lyrical gauntlet to the world, as she tackles issues of political injustice ("Flowers on the Chains'), personal integrity ("Wrong Way to Love"), and grace and forgiveness ("Over You").

Producer Justin Beckler matches the integrity and raw honesty of the lyrics with his richly textured layers of sound generated exclusively by just three musicians: Lorna Bracewell as vocalist/guitarist, drummer/percussionist Noel Bisesti, and himself. The result is a setting for Bracewell's songs that propels each of them toward its intensely personal, yet powerfully universal, meaning.

Listeners to Flowers on the Chains will not find slick formulaic recapitulations of mindless overused themes set to sugary pitch-corrected vocals over chord progressions calculated by popularity polls. Instead, they will be challenged to look intently inside at their own demons of personal and corporate prejudice and injustice through tones and moods and textures that weave a gnarly yet beautiful picture of the glories and the ignominies of life "On this Earth."

Lorna moves On !
Taken me a while to know this album well enough to make a comment.Its not God Forbid 2. Think quoting Marxs is going to
put MTV/ mainstream radio off but personally thought it added excitement.
For what its worth she isn't into revolution. But her music is personal & gives life an alternative perspective . 1914 is a very fine piece of music.Definitely an album worth getting to know. ps don't really like stars either like something or I don't

just another chick fan

Great new sound!!
This one really lays down the rock without taking away from the intense lyrics. I love the ballads like "Over You" and "Forever Girl". I super-dig the proof that Lorna is who the St. Pete Times says she is: "the heir to the Ani throne"... in "Cross Your Face"!! I'll be back for more:)
