Nigel Brown is a London based singer songwriter whose ambition has always been to write great songs, songs that had meaning and survive the test of time. Inspired by the likes of Bob Dylan his latest album has brought him several steps closer to that dream.
‘World on Fire’ is Nigel Brown’s latest and his most noteworthy release to date. He deserves high praise for all the instruments he plays on the album, with his son providing drum tracks. It is in the simple arrangements, harmonies and poignant lyrics that this album really shines. Throughout the lyrics are lifted into prominence, a winning factor that has helped the success of many from the likes of Nick Drake to Simon and Garfunkle.
Gone Bad is just one of the highlights on the album that amplifies that whole feel of the album. it has a timeless quality that crosses somewhere between Laurel Canyon inspired choruses and classic 70’s British Folk. He is a deceivingly good artist where subtlety and simplicity win every time.
World on Fire is released on June 4th and is available on itunes and other digital outlets:
