Randall Bramblett has kept great company over the years. From his early career with Capricorn Records (Cowboy, Gregg Allman, Sea Level) to his more recent tours with Widespread Panic, Traffic, Steve Winwood and most recently Bonnie Raitt, he has worked with the best in the business.
The multi-Grammy winning Raitt has been a Bramblett devotee since the late Stephen Bruton gave her a copy of 2001's No More Mr. Lucky. She invited Bramblett's band on the road to open shows and recorded his compositions "God Was in the Water" which appears on the album Souls Alike, and the gutsy "Used To Rule the World" (which has become a focus track) on Slipstream, which in addition to winning Grammy gold has sold more than 300,000 units to date.
The self-effacing artist downplays his previous sideman status, yet is grateful for valuable lessons gained from his work with Gregg Allman ("I learned about organ, vocals and drama through the bluesiness and dynamics of his playing"), watching The Band's Levon Helm ("his joy of playing freed me up") and Steve Winwood ("he taught me a lot about organ and melody, working out details and how to create the background beds he was so good at").
The challenge of composing moving, often emotionally driven songs with words that aim to stir the listener's feelings has always motivated Bramblett and creates this inspired album. Writing a song is "like playing with the pieces of a puzzle or playing in the sand until you start seeing something," he asserts.
"Randall is in my opinion one of the most gifted & talented southern singer-songwriter musicians of the past several decades." ~ Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones, Allman Brothers)
