Don Brownrigg

Don BrownriggWander Songs from Halifax based musician Don Brownrigg was released in 2007. Finally 6 years later Don has returned to the East Coast music scene with a new album, It Takes All Kinds (to make this world, I find) and a new record deal from Tiny Records Canada.

With the help of well known East Coast Music Award producer Daniel Ledwell, the album took two years to record and not only did Don write all the songs but he sang, played guitar, keyboard and accordion on the record as well.  The recently released album consists of songs that are vibrant and honest and it forces the listener to think about the good and the bad of our deepest feelings and emotions.  I expect that Don Brownrigg must have experienced some of life’s greatest ups and downs during the 6 years in between albums as you cannot help but overhear the hurt and hope in It Takes All Kinds.
