Grey Reverend - 'One By One' Out Now
The latest artist to be championed by Jason Swinscoe’s Motion Audio imprint will be familiar to fans of The Cinematic Orchestra. Brooklyn-based L.D. Brown aka Grey Reverend met Swinscoe shortly after the Cinematics main-man relocated to NYC. When Swinscoe heard some of his material he was impressed by it and they met up. Eventually, he asked him to supply a cover version of “To Build A Home”. Swinscoe liked the resulting “mix” so much that Grey Reverend began to tour with TCO, singing with them and performing his own material in support.
One By One shows exactly what to expect from the forthcoming album, Of The Days. Brown performs his songs primarily as a soloist, using acoustic guitar and voice to convey his music to his audience. Compelling and positively ambiguous, with reverence for the grey, undefined areas of style, his songs are unconcerned with musical or social expectations. They sit completely outside of time and fashion, the simplicity and honesty of his voice enough to carry them.
One By One is available to download now from the Ninjashop.
