ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kevin Brawley

"Waltzing on Eggshells"

2007 Copper Mind Records

This is the new album from Charlotte, NC singer/songwriter Kevin Brawley. Acoustic based, but with far more sonic depth than your average "guy with guitar". You will get plenty of Hammond Organ, layers of vocals, precise and emotional acoustic and electric guitar work, fully orchestrated string sections, and a psychadelic, intense dance remix of "Work it Out" done by Richard Perry. Painfully honest songs about the last 2 years of his life, particularly the ups and downs of his marriage. A must for any fans of Jeff Buckley, Pink Floyd, Ani Difranco, Paul Simon, or Rusted Root.

From Creative Loafing, July 11, 2007 :

"The multi-talented Brawley plays guitar, keyboards, and percussion on the album which is inspired by "two upredictable years of marriage." The opening track, "Les is More," opens with an eery electronic intro that quickly changes gears into an acoustic pop song. "Cup of Coffee" looks at the rough side of a breakup without being sappy. Brawley's vocals have a subtle smoothness to them but enough power when needed during the chorus. This is easily heard on "The Rush" - a mellow acoustic number that kicks it up a notch at the right moments. He also gets to show off his picking and strumming techniques on "Work it Out" - a funky acoustic track with a bit of a Dave Matthews vibe to it - and "Acts of Kindness". The verdict - the nine track cd is a solid debut." -Jeff Hahne

The Diesel

Well-hearsed and well-produced album with sharp vocals and tactful acoustic guit
It's hard to believe Waltzing on Eggshells is this guy's first solo album. Brawley seems to have entered the world of production a number of steps ahead of the typical rookie, combining some colorful samples with his music, which is as honest as it gets. Move over Harrry Connick Jr. with some of the funky guitar writing, and be proud Paul Simon for some of the minimalistic, brutal honesty in his lyrics. Well-phrased lyrics and thoughtful writing with imagery round out this album that flows more like a river than roller coaster. Four stars.

picked this up based on earlier Picadilly Circus material; wasn't disappointed
I was blown away by how different this is sonically (and sometimes lyrically) from Kevin's work with Picadilly Circus. But that's not a bad thing at all. The production on this album is amazing; the sound is crystal clear and the ambient sounds work like another instrument. Great, straightforward go-for-the-throat lyrics and I love the fact that this CD blends together so smoothly that it could almost be one track.

rewarding with each listen....
From start to finish, this album grabs your attention and holds it all the way through. The test of a good CD is often whether or not one can put it in the player, press play, and walk away knowing one will be satisfied throughout one\'s listening time. Such is the case for \"Waltzing on Egg Shells.\" It bounces around from being at times poppy, others melodic, still others are full of the sentiments and experiences brought by love and marriage. In this regard, life\'s pendulum often swings but Kevin\'s music and lyrical talent are with out a doubt up to this challenge. Consequently, this album is interesting, which is significantly more than anything I can say for 99% of the music industry, and grips you from \"les is More\" through the remix of \"Work it Out.\" I can\'t help but think this writing experience had to have been somewhat therapeutic to compose. It certainly is when put through my headphones......I enjoy something different about it each time I listen to it. I suggest you do the same!

Port of Dream

Amazing Solo Record That I Keep Returning to
This is one of the most honest, well-produced, and catchiest DIY solo albums I've heard in a loooooong time. I got this cd a good while ago and I still listen to it on a regular basis. It's one of those cds that I put on if I want to be put into a good, chill mood. Played this cd on the way to the beach with my girlfriend a while back and I have to say that it is a perfect summer album. It is perfectly balanced with upbeat/uptempo numbers like Les is More and Island Hopper and the darker material like Work it out and The Rush. I highly recommend this album to anyone who likes a solid and varied singer-songwriter album.

Outstanding
This album is a masterpiece. It's probably one of my top three favorite albums of the past decade. It offers terrific vocal style, great melodies and catchy hooks. However, what separates this album from others is the unrivaled lyrical storytelling. Kevin conveys the kind of passion that you occasionally find in a great novel, if you’re lucky, but rarely will you find it in this medium. By the end of the album you’ve ridden an emotional rollercoaster that is so great that you can’t wait to get back in line. Personally, I’ve gotten back in line so many times that it’s impossible to count anymore. I think that everybody should have the chance to be so lucky.
