Nursery Rhyme Blues
Isaiah B Brunt
Modern day compilation of blues short stories, incorporating the essence of the album title name, Nursery Rhyme Blues.
This body of work is a creative mixture of raw acoustic blues, Delta, hokum and New Orleans influenced blues with sprinkles of country blues. Some tracks resonate vivid visions of Morricone style sound tracks. The album is built around Isaiah's vocal temperament and self-accompanied guitar or ukulele recorded at the same time to simulate the experience of a live performance. Additional instruments such as blues harp, slide, vibraphone, flute, cello, percussion, accordion and sousaphone were also included to set the tone of the mood for each song. The songs are delivered with a raw honesty that portray the artist's true authenticity creating a sometimes picturesque vision that can only be viewed through a kaleidoscope of sound.
MidWest Record Entertainment News, Reviews, Views quotes some of Isaiah's past work as sounding. " Brunt slings a mighty slide guitar and recalls something Dick Waterman or Sam Charters would have produced for Vanguard back in the day."
