‘It Takes All Kinds (to make this world, I find) is the unique
tinyrecordscanada / MapleMusic Recordings debut from
the multi-talented east-coaster, Don Brownrigg and is set for
release on October 22, 2013.
With a full length album already under his belt (he released Wander Songs on weewerk in 2007) Brownrigg is an expert in bringing his charisma to the live stage. He has a rich voice, filled with experience and wisdom, and he enthrals audiences with his storytelling and eloquent serenades.
In a country known for multi-talented singer/songwriters, the Halifax-based Brownrigg (via Codroy Valley, Newfoundland) has written 10 honest and vivid songs resulting in an absolutely stunning album. Recorded in Nova Scotia over a two-year time span with producer Daniel Ledwell (Jenn Grant) at the helm, the album exudes both commerciality (Sweet Dream Sleeper/When The Heart Resigns) and credibility (Fight For Your Castle/No Smoke, No Gun) at the same time. The record also showcases the wide range of musicality of the pairing – with Daniel contributing trumpet, trombone, bass, guitar, keyboard and whistle skills – while Don took the lead with vocals, guitar, piano, keyboard and accordion.
A virtuoso performer who has toured with the likes of Serena Ryder, Shawn Colvin and Great Lake Swimmers – Brownrigg has set himself apart with his captivating honesty and take on life. “There’s love, there’s loss, there’s hope, there’s regret,” says Brownrigg. “There’s seriousness and there’s silliness. I like it that way. It keeps you thinking about the good and the bad in everything. It takes all kinds.”
tinyrecordscanada is a brand new indie label started by industry veteran William “Skinny” Tenn (William Tenn Management/Songplugger/Hardwood) and is known for working with key talent like Hayden, Cuff The Duke, and Ron Hawkins/Lowest of the Low. This will be the first release from tinyrecordscanada, which also includes an exciting new licensing venture with MapleMusic Recordings. Expect even more from tiny in early 2014 when they will be releasing the epic new album from Rival Boys.
