Inventive, catchy, unique sound, a welcome style of music
I really enjoyed the CD. It is inventive and the songs are catchy. This band not only is pushing the envelope with the combination of instruments used, but also add a unique style that is highly enjoyable and fun to listen too. Truely a welcome change to my listening pleasure.

Charley Day

catchy lyrics, tunes and beat, fun listening
Fun listening to this - I heard it first live - great show, catchy lyrics, clever tunes, nice beat. The tuba makes me think of Zydeco. Colorful - like red boots. Great photos on the album cover.

Jason Godbey

fun, thoughtful and very memorable
I listened to this CD three times when I first got it. I played it the first time and immediately hit play again and listened to it 2 more times. It's that good. The music moved me and the lyrics spoke to me.
It's the best 10 bucks I've ever spent on music.


wonderful stuff
I play this all the time. Everyone loves it and
I'm giving BRIGHT RED BOOTS for presents this year.
Emily has a great voice.
If you like her, you'll like Sera Petras - The Findells- FINLAND (also at CD baby)

Oh so very fun
I purchased this CD based on the samples here on CDBaby and boy am I happy I did. This is extremely enjoyable music that sounds like not much else I have heard. The use of tuba/trombone on select tracks is brilliant. It does not seem forced at all and at times, just seems like a fuller sounding bass guitar. However, on songs like the phenomenal I Need, I Want, I Crave, the tuba is a vital part of the sound. I highly recommend this CD to anyone looking for happy music.


Can't wait for the next one!
I purchased this CD over a year ago and It has only left my changer once (for a Christmas party). It is simply fun fun fun. The lyics are smart, the sound is totally unique, the instrumentation continues to surprise me, and the vocals... the best you can find! These guys n gals have got it. Get this CD so you can say... "I was listening to EARLY B.R.B." Because they are destined for greatness.

T. Alex Davis

melodic guitar riffs and soaring singing; a solid work of art
this is defintely not your average singer/songwriter/band. unlike a lot of singers who produce albums self-titled, this is a whole ensemble work. although davis' voluptuos vocals shine as the true center of the cd, the other parts work well. guitar, rythm and of course tuba.. the guitar pickin's are well thought out and complex, especially on "the day between the kings"(is that the right name of the song??)tuba and cello is nice tho' a bit overbearing at times. on the opposit I craved more from percussion.. more agressiveness or something.
still all in all this album is a gem. from the gorgeous singing and lyrics to the quirky touch, I highly recommend it to any musical epicurist.
