"Brosseau's first solo release in 5 years and his 7th studio album to date. Themes of the album include emptiness of a false dream, loyalty, betrayal and perseverance. More about Grass Punks and Tom BrosseauTom Brosseau is a folksinger and songwriter from North Dakota. He comes from a working family with a musical background, though none have received formal training. His grandmother Lillian Uglem taught him the acoustic guitar while he was in grade school. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California. ""My first musical recordings were done so on the family dictation machine. Cassette tapes I bought for cheap at garage sales, the soundtrack to Batman, Beethoven, Enya, which I then unlocked by obstructing the write-protect tab with tape. My idea of a recording studio isn't some climate controlled facility with cutting-edge technology but a bedroom, Radio Shack mic and tape machine, and when I think of album manufacturing I think of Leslie Dillahunt, who still runs media production out of her home in La Mesa, California."" He has toured Japan, Canada, Portugal, Iceland, Australia; performed in bars, backyards, grand halls, subways, theaters, old folks homes; exchanged songs and poetry with many talented folks, including Susan Orlean, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Patrick Marber, Bonnie Raitt and the late Sam Hinton. %uFFFDHis blues-folks songs seem simple and plain, but there%uFFFDs a real depth to the lyrics, and they%uFFFDre sung in a voice so confident in its smooth, Ricky Nelson-esque purity that it barely needs accompaniment.%uFFFD- Sylvie Simmons 4 stars, MOJO %uFFFDLike the pleasure of film noir and ageing port%uFFFD[Brosseau%uFFFDs music] is refined folk on a crackling gramophone and comfort-wrapped in cigarette smoke%uFFFD. Beautifully dated, %uFFFDBrass Ring Blues%uFFFD sounds, in the best possible way, like something John Peel would have taken from boot sale obscurity.%uFFFD - NME Since 2010, Tom Brosseau has performed with Becky Stark and John C. Reilly in John Reilly & Friends, a band devoted to the current American folk music revival, whose members also include Dan Bern, Willie Watson %uFFFDIn 2011, Reilly and Brosseau recorded a 7"" vinyl single entitled John & Tom that was produced by Jack White for Third Man Records.
