Brad Byrd (from the album The Bright Lights Fade Away available on Elusive Tiger Entertainment) (by Bryant Liggett)
Brad Byrd kicks his latest record off by owning up to his imperfections. Found on his latest release, The Bright Lights Fade Away, the line ‘No, I’m not the perfect man’ from album opener “Go” sets a somber honest tone. That description wraps around as Brad Byrd as he voices admissions and reveals emotions.
A driving harmonica pushes “I Don’t Know (What to Believe In)” where Byrd questions faith after making the smart claim of ‘your god is dead’. You realize, two songs in, that Brad Byrd isn’t afraid of opening up and questioning those around. He sings of pain in “I Walk the Same Line As You”, non-stop life changes in “No One Knows”, and drops a sad, ambient, airy cut in the hushed “State Line”.
The thumping “The Bright Lights (Fade Away)” is an ambient road cut with a subtle charge, and album closer, “Your Love”, sings of the kind of love that never seems to go away. Lyrically, this is a record that plays like the journal of someone unafraid to bear it all. Brad Byrd is reading from his personal belief book, and he’s booked a hip, Indie Roots band to play the score. (by Bryant Liggett)
