For his first
solo release, Painted Pony, Brad Brobisky has returned to Willie Nelson's
Pedernales Studio with the very best of Austin's musicians. His long time
partner, Jesse "Guitar" Taylor is heard on nearly every song, along
with appearances by Derek O'Brian and Gurf Morlix.
Country Legend Jimmy Day was able to lend his steel guitar before passing away in January. His death was followed by that of Co-Producer/ drummer Donald Lindley (Lucinda Williams, John Doe) and Brad's mother, Martha Lou. The song "January Blue Moon" is dedicated to the three of them. Kimmie Rhodes and Toni Price both add beautiful harmonies, and the fiddle of Champ Hood is everywhere on this record. Bay Area keyboardist Mitchel Stein compliments this stellar group of Texas players.
This is Brad's most ambitious group of songs yet. From the backwards guitar wail of "Beautiful Dream", to the pure innocence of "Forever Girl", the roots of American music are visited over and over. "Baby's Started To Sing" and the prison ballad "Visiting Day" are both strong songs, as is the straight ahead R&B romp "Tears of Joy".
