Product Notes

'Cheery, dreary, happy, sad The rich, the mean, the broke Feel so good to feel so bad Join in! We're singing folk' Real life's ups and downs and a touch of humour; when you've listened, I hope you'll 'Whisper My Name'. Amongst my greatest inspirations, for many years, have been the beautifully touching words and music of Mickey Newbury. For me, Mickey was a hero and an icon; latterly, I was lucky enough to become one of Mickey's many friends and something he wrote to me gave the title and inspiration for this album - 'Whisper My Name' I have always enjoyed listening to singer/songwriters who accompany themselves on guitar: Mickey Newbury; Leonard Cohen; Janis Ian; John Denver; Bob Dylan. My love of songs that contribute to the lyric tradition extends from Robert Burns, through The Proclaimers, to Kate Rusby, with almost countless others in-between. However they are categorised - folk or country or pop - I enjoy songs that tell stories and those are the types of songs that I try to write. So, 'Whisper My Name' presents me, my voice and my guitar, performing my songs. Everything I write gives some account of people and places in my life: from the North of Scotland via the Côte d'Azure to the Pacific coast of Oregon; from loneliness, to friendship, to love. I hope that some parts of my experience will strike some chords with you. Below are some comments from listeners to 'Whisper My Name' 'The songs are all acoustic and there could be no better tribute... These are wonderful songs...' - Ron Lyons 'He knows I love trains, especially steam. His Scottish brogue comes through, which makes these songs all the more charming' - Karen Runk 'Always knew Brian was special and had a deep love for Mickey's music, but what a tribute! Way to go Brian!' - Randy Brown 'thank you for the wonderful CD. I love it and play it often. You know, I believe Mickey would have felt the same...' - Joe Ziemer.
