For over a decade Canada-based songwriter Don Brownrigg has been prescribing healing, metaphysical folk sounds to listeners around the globe; his latest release, the Fireworks LP, delivers a double dose of thought-provoking pseudo-medicinal acoustic and flows calmly through the speakers with a velvety touch.
Steadily playing shows and festivals throughout Canada and the United States when he’s not writing or recording, Brownrigg channels ethereal sounds from the Canadian wilderness and perplexingly-fulfilling lyrics into songs that simultaneously strike a chord with the heart and ignite a spark in the mind.
The airy aesthetic, steadily supported by its reappearing acoustic guitar and piano combination and featuring cameos from horn and stringed complements, provides a warm and worldly musical environment for Brownrigg’s distant yet deeply-echoing vocals.
The music video for “Strum and Rhyme”, the first song on the album’s B-Side, is available now and features grainy footage of atmospheric landscapes paired with inter-forestal back roads. The song, which sounds futuristic while detailing experiences of the past and presents programmed sounds while pairing them with antiquated videography, is a wholesome embodiment of Brownrigg’s hypnotic power on the Fireworks LP, an album which defiantly reaffirms his creative prowess as a musician.
