Album Notes
Brady Earnhart is a songwriter, a poet, and a professor of American Literature and Creative Writing at The University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA. His songs have won numerous awards, including the Gold Medal in the Folk Category of the 2002 Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest; his second CD, Manalapan, was runner-up in the 2004 national Outmusic Awards. An Acoustic Guitar Magazine reviewer named his album After You among the ten best of the 1990s, and he has been a Mountain Stage NewSong Festival finalist, Greg Varner of the Washington Blade writes, “He may be in the tradition of the folk troubadour, but don’t be fooled—Earnhart is singing art songs. Like the work of Stephen Foster or Aaron Copland, this work has a native American beauty.”

A few more things
I played this CD for the first time on the way to Richmond, a trip I make quite often. I found myself replaying the songs over and over, and listening and singing along as I went down 95. Even though it was heartbreaking, I especially loved "Daniel," the story of a gay soldier, home on leave, and his last night with his boyfriend. I wanted it to end happily; I wanted Daniel to be OK. I also especially liked "Wild Nights" and I think Emily Dickinson would approve. A high quality of composition and musicality and a depth of feeling and intimacy pervades not just these two, but all the songs. I feel as if I have been invited into the singer/songwriter's living room and we are sitting relaxed on his couch, a drink in hand, as he sings to me--there is comfort here, and closeness, and home.

Well done.

This isn't just music
Brady Earnhart weaves musical tales. Every song is like listening to a master storyteller, evoking heartfelt emotion and sharing real moments, with surprise twists and sucker punches. His lyrics are a cut above, clever and intelligent, a joy to partake, and almost a surprise paired with the folksy delivery but oh! so sophisticated arrangements. From poignant bittersweet to tongue in cheek humor, this album is another Brady 5 star!


beautiful stuff
years ago, the albums 'after you' and 'manalapan' won me over with their subtle, refined melodies and sharp lyrical focus. 'so few things' picks up right where those albums left off. i would call earnhart's sound "contemplative" if that didn't seem such a glib word. yes, it's contemplative--in the best sense--but it's exacting as well. few can conjure situation, mood, scene and emotional fallout as precisely as earnhart. "daniel," "as you were," "here & here," "it's not love," “these weeks,” the endless wordplay of "everywhere." all these stories stick with you. all stellar. there's a singular territory earnhart carves out and it's his domain alone. on these chilly fall nights, i put on his cd and feel perfectly at home. so few artists i can say that about.
