Album Notes
Brady's fourth album, created over a year and a half during his recovery from a life-threatening neurological disease, ranges from serious love ballads ("Randall," "You Made Light," "Song for Bob") to retellings of great literature ("Orpheus," "Huck's Confession") to quirky children's songs ("Meaning to Play," "Baby Bear's Porridge") to gentle instrumentals ("Crim Dell," "Valley Road") to meditations on family and society ("Handsome and Kind," "Doctor's Son," "Delray," "Lie Down"). Dense but leavened with humor, melodies that stay in your head, and strikingly fresh language, these songs invite repeated visits from discerning listeners.

The composition of poet song writer!
Brady Earnhart continues to set his life to poetry in this album. If you have heard the other songs about American literature, a round the civil war, then you can not miss Huck's confession. If you have heard other parts of Brady's story, listen to doctor's son. A little more life story, sung and not only told. And listen to the departure from his musical past in the music behind Baby bears porridge. Finger snapping, and a swing edge!

Beautiful & Accomplished
If you like intelligent, introspective folk reminiscent of Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen, and Nick Drake, you need to discover Brady Earnhart. A songwriter's songwriter, Earnhart has put out three strikingly gorgeous records--"After You," "Manalapan," and "So Few Things." His latest, “Last Time I Promise,” is another stellar collection of masterfully written songs. "Do You Believe?," "Randall," and "You Made Light" would have fit perfectly on any of his previous albums, as would the haunting "Lie Down" and "Orpheus," but on "Last Time I Promise," Earnhart shows a more playful side. The album features two whimsical children's songs--the sublime "Meaning To Play" and the winking "Baby Bear's Porridge." He's also branched out stylistically with the heavy-rocking "Huck's Confession" and the addition of two instrumentals. And then there's the hilarious bonus track, "Ad For An Imaginary Russian Resort." Somehow it all fits together. Weave your way through these songs, and allow them to open slowly. There's brilliance waiting.

Easy elegance
Stumbled on HUCK'S CONFESSION (cut 5) on You Tube ... freakin' brilliant. Song, production, unaffected interpretation, and elegant video. Honest, moving, surprising melodically but still very accessible and true to the period, somehow ... Twain's eyes would twinkle with approval.

I've since listened to the entire album and cuts from his other fine albums as well. It's like sitting on the end of a friend's bed listening to him recount the telling details of his childhood and key relationships. This man is a poet--the real deal. Unpretentious but richly layered, his songs offer deceptively simple melodies and an intimate, throwaway style of picking and delivery that really drew me into his passionately ambivalent inner world. Fascinating writer, and good company on a rainy late afternoon.

Last Time I Promise
Gay singer/songwriter (and educator and writer) Brady Earnhart doesn’t disappoint on his long-awaited fourth album Last Time I Promise (City Salvage). There are few out musicians who are as consistently strong and inspiring as Earnhart. This is particularly true since Earnhart was recording Last Time I Promise while recovering from a debilitating health issue. Back to good health and better than ever, Earnhart gives us some of his most accessible work here, including the electric “Do You Believe” (complete with “dog-bark ringtone”) and the country comfort of “Handsome and Kind.” Intimate moments, including “Delray,” “You Made Light,” “Song for Bob,” and “Doctor’s Son,” are also standouts. Instrumentals such as the piano-only centerpiece “Crim Dell” and “Valley Road,” as well as the clever lyric play of “Baby Bear’s Porridge,” are welcome additions to Earnhart’s astonishing canon.
