Garrett J. Brown: Priorities–Set upon a background full of bluesy harmonicas and quiet guitars Brown’s debut album is his take on his observations of life with a wise twist. The track, “Passerby” is an original built out of Brown’s self taught singer-songwriter ability. It brought him some notoriety for its heartfelt music and lyrics in 2009 putting him on the proverbial singer/songwriter map. And, of course, this album would include this track as a highlight. It is an upbeat tune with rhythm driven by harmonica, backed with infectious percussion and lyrics appealing to a wide audience. “Tuesday” is a more mellow tune, handling the idea of strength in the face of change quite well. The title track, “Priorities” is a tribute to Brown’s native Vermont that speaks to simpler times.
