ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Because life is not a genre!

The Genre Benders break all the molds in this debut effort. More like a compilation than an album, this CD explores music for true believers - we love it all and play what we love.

No-one is the same all the time; we live all the genres at some stage in our lives. This album plays to that belief and there's more to come.

It's got Blues, Country, Reggae, Pop, Rock, a Lullaby and a song with no music at all ... in the name of expressing who we are and how we live. The oldest song on here was written in 1991 and the newest in 2007.

The Genre Benders are a loose collective of musician, artists and songwriters in Brisbane, Australia. They come together under the leadership of Huge (see www.huge.id.au) to record and perform the way they live. Their live shows feature the same variety of music as the album - but it's delivered with such energy and conviction that you don't notice the variety - it's all good.

The Genre Benders
Hugh Brown is an amazing musician. I came to know him, as "HUGE!!" Only realizing once I got his CD that his band name is "The Genre Benders". He couldn't have named his style of music a better name. He's definitely a genre bender. I've been listening to his CD for about a month now, and it's just amazing how he changes his voice to fit into so many different genres of music. His first track on his "I Am Leaving! I Am Leaving!" CD "Long for the Day" is more of a Pop/Rock genre of music, then you go into my personal favorite, "Dancing with the Stones". That song fits Hugh to a tee. He's such an amazing performer he can even get stones to dance! At the conference I saw him at, the first night he closed a VERY long day of networking and performances, with almost everyone in attendance up and dancing and having a great time, singing right along with all of his Oooo! Ahhhh!. Hugh is just one of those guys, you can't resist, he can definitely get anyone up and dancing and having a great time. Then, in "Mighty Fine Day" you enter into the genre of the sappy love songs, that get you feeling all of his innermost heart feelings. Then before you know it he has you up jumping again in "12 Good Bars and True". I would describe this song's genre of more of a Honky Tonk Blues, feel. He once again just amazes me with his voice. Finally my 2nd favorite song is "Heart's with You". That fits right in there with any Country song over here in the States. There really aren't too many musicians that can fit into so many different genres of music, but Hugh Brown definitely fits that bill. His CD is filled with so many different instruments, all used to make his songs, sound as "thick" and beautiful as possible, but the way I saw and heard The Genre Benders for the first time was Hugh holding an acoustic guitar, wearing some funky pants that definitely catch your attention. The raw simplicity of a one-man band, coming all the way from Australia, and performing to absolute complete strangers, astounds me. He really did a fantastic performance both times I saw him, and I can guarantee he picked up a lot of fans on his trip across the big water!
