"American Boy / American Girl" dropped on Tuesday April 17th. It has been VERY well received by fans and friends. Here are some of the reviews I pulled from iTunes. http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/american-boy-american-girl/id518893251
No more flying under the radar
Where to begin? Not my typical choice in music, but maybe that's just it. Great music can't be defined or placed in a category. The songs vary widely but all have the same masterpiece feel and a voice like no one elses. Bryan's voice couldn't be more recognizable and the heart and soul that the listener can feel is like no other. Words simply can't do this album justice...buy it this second and be glad you can say you knew who this guy was way back when before he was a mega star
Folk Music for the 21st Century
by M. Ringo
Over the last few years there has been a group of current and former punk rock musicians trying their hand at alt. country or folk music. Bryan McPherson stands above all of them. It's amazing a kid from the streets of Dorchester, who has overcome his own personal demons, can bring an album soaked with current issues of our country and our world. These songs epitomize the Occupy movement, but were written before any of the demonstrations were held. Hopefully, some people will here these songs and feel encouraged that they are not alone in there displeasure with society and stand up, stand together to continue fighting for changes.
without a doubt one of the best albums of the year
wow. bryan mcpherson's sophomore album is truly a work of art. though his sound has become more refined, his gut-wrenching grit and passion for his music is undeniable. as with his previous album, fourteen stories, bryan's lyrics are poignant and angry yet remain full of hope. the emotion and fervor of his voice coupled with his guitar and harmonica drives you to the edge of your seat creating a sense of urgency only bryan can construct. this album does not waste a second and as "me, i am anger" states, this album doesn't "get fifteen chords to explain it," nor does it need it - instead bryan's genius ability to bring a sense of candor and simplicity to complicated issues shines through. without a doubt one of my favorite albums of the year. hats off to you bryan mcpherson for yet another amazing record!
