Mary Bragg (from the album Violets as Camouflage available on Tone Tree Music)
The melodies have a relaxed sensibility on Violets as Camouflage, the recent release from Mary Bragg. Rhythms flow steadily underneath clearly drawn characters, their revolutions turned over in support of the experiences found in the storyline. Warm notes comfort as they embrace the love offering thanks in “You Rescue Me” while “Fixed” plucks a heartbeat from lightly picked strings and hurried breaths whisper memories as afterthoughts in “I Thought You Were Somebody Else”. Violets as Camouflagepeaks behind closed curtains to find the truths hidden behind pretty displays and window dressings when sharp-edged acoustics build a backbone for “Faint of Heart” to match the indominable perseverance of the tough folks facing an uphill climb to middle ground as bright strums sparkle alongside the inspiration pouring from the act-now advice in “More Than You Do”.
Electric guitar chords slashes are the clarion call when Mary Bragg gathers the spirit of a community, using their determination to describe life in “Runaway Town”. Soft Country strums back the sad story for the left-alone lover in “A Little Less”, keeping the style on board for the wagon sway rhythms of “Trouble Me Anytime” while Violets as Camouflageuses microphones to face off as the weapons of choice when love takes sides as Robby Hecht duets with Mary Bragg in “Fight”. Going against the expectations of her formative years, Mary Bragg directly addresses hardships as she kicks in the doors of adversity, citing her Georgia upbringing as a place ‘where it's not super common to come right out and say what you feel or talk openly about your intimate emotional experiences’. Distorted sonics are thunder merging with the clouds of fractured emotions forming in “This Feeling” while Violets as Camouflagedefines a groove with train-wheel rhythms on “The Right Track” and Mary Bragg dreams of a future with no “Sad Stories”.
