Cold Recording Sessions
"The Cold Recording Sessions" ("Sessions") is the first release from singer/songwriter Brownie. His creed, "Life and love through melodic rock", perfectly describes what this musical soul records and carefully produces to sonic perfection. Inspired by the sounds of Peter Gabriel, Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder and Depeche Mode, every note, chord and lyric has a specific role and meaning that translate to pop/rock gems. Brownie, a/k/a Brian O'Donnell, has been a musician as far back as he can remember and chose to release this EP as a first glimpse into his musical mind and spirit. "Sessions" is a series of songs written in the past year that demonstrates Brownie's versatility as a musician, songwriter and performer. "Ghost", the first single from "Sessions", is full of driving acoustic guitar riffs and laid-back rhythm tracks that provide the foundation for this tale of love lost. "Life", the opening track, is a song about reflection with a delicate melody accompanied by a hard-hitting rhythm track that provides just enough tension for the underlying message of hope. On "Sessions", Brownie's voice exhibits a wide versatility from song to song, alternating between soft-spoken heartbreak and grinding aggression. He is a trained composer, multi-instrumentalist and engineer/producer, and he employs each of these sets of skills from beginning to end. If you appreciate unrestricted and ever-evolving music, Brownie will be the source of constant change and originality that your music collection needs.
