Synopsis

Album Description
Sibling duo Brennen Leigh and Seth Hulbert are bringing their eclectic mix of americana roots music to enthusiastic audiences from Minnesota to Florida. Armed with a mandolin and a voice as strong as railroad tracks and as smooth as a mint julep, Brennen Leigh breathes fresh life into bluegrass, country western, Texas swing, Irish folk and Mississippi Delta blues standards, as well as adding distinctively north woods images to her well-crafted original songs. Brennen Leigh's eagerly awaited debut album includes seven original songs and nine covers of such americana classics as Hank Williams' "Moanin' the Blues" and Bob Wills' "San Antonio Rose" to contemporary gems like Greg Brown's "The Train Carrying Jimmie Rodgers Home" and Steve Earle's "I'm Still In Love With You." Lonesome, Wild & Blue features virtuoso bluegrass contributions from guest artists on mandolin, banjo, flatpick guitar, dobro, pedal steel, fiddle, and upright bass. Vocalist Brennen plays mandolin on several tracks and Brennen's brother Seth Hulbert plays guitar on all tracks and sings harmony vocals.

CD Reviews

Gotta leave Fargo to get Famous
J. C. Shepard | Minnesota USA | 05/29/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Brennen Leigh & her brother Seth left Fargo for the Texas Hill country and landed at Austin's SXSW festival in 2003. Their debut CD covers alot of ground--Roadhouse blues, alt.country, neo-trad country, bluegrass, with quality production. This album, especially the last track, is one of my Americana favorites on KRFC-FM."
A Great First Effort
J. C. Shepard | 06/07/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Brennen Leigh's first CD leaves me wanting for an immediate second release. The blue grass/country sounds emanate from the past to enhance her own songs. The original tunes such as "Jesse James", No Way, Jose" and "The Legend of Benny Ambrose" are solid compositions and blend well with the standards. Her voice is powerful but soft when it requires. Produced by her guitarist brother, I anxiously await a follow-up."
