Brian McKenzie

Bruising from the Fall

Album review by Allyson Kingsley Music Journalist with Boston Rock Radio

 

What you may know about Brian McKenzie is that he is a founding member and guitarist/songwriter of the band Kilgore, a well-known and well-loved heavy metal band from Providence, RI.  What you may not know is that he has an upcoming EP of his own project Brian McKenzie and Always September titled Bruising From the Fall.  Although it's not heavy metal, he just gained a fan. Other contributors on the album are Bill Southerland (drums), Marty O'Brien (bass), Brad O’Brien (bass) and Chris Piccirillo (drums).

 

From the opening song “Higher Than This" I was endeared to his genuinely heartfelt vocals. It takes a lot to impress me with country rock but this is some passionate and moving music.  “Bruising From the Fall" is a profound song with lyrics we can all relate to at some point on this continuum of life.  “The In Between” is an expressive ballad minus the 80s cheese you've been used to.  Aside from Brian's breathtaking vocals, the instrumentation is smooth and flowing and their combination nicely uplifts Brian’s vocals.  The musicianship sounds tightly woven. The final song “Justified" has a heavier edge but no less heartrending.

 

This soulful album captures something deep inside of you. Hints of blues, prog rock, and country (aka Johnny Cash) keep the sound spellbinding.

 

Pre-order this 7-song EP now: HERE and stay tuned for an upcoming interview with Nina.
