Kenneth Brian cut his musical teeth in metal and punk bands here in Florida. About a decade ago he decided he needed a change of scenery, so he packed up his bags and left for Nashville, Tennessee. When I first wrote about him back in 2007 he was playing Texas swing/roots country music. Well, a couple of weeks ago I noticed that Kenneth had released a new cd, Fallin’ Down Slow, so I ordered it up.
I was expecting more of the same when the cd showed up, and in one way it is. It’s still pure Texas country music coming out of Nashville, but on the other hand this is a much more mature effort than his previous releases. Tracks like “Southbound” probably couldn’t have come from Kenneth three years ago, but I’m glad they have now.
