Brother Neil

The always bewitching mix of meandering acoustic plucking and aching brown-eyed soul is a winning combination no matter which way you pin it. Brother Neil has this craft nailed, and he takes his time letting listeners know it. Songs meander from Sunday-morning-love-confessional to spring-in-your-step adventure tunes. Expertly played, with uncommon chord changes to make it that much more exciting.
Album: Away Avenue Away (2017)
While garnering as much attention (and acclaim) as ‘Bonfire Confessions’,’Away Avenue Away…’ is a change of direction in sound and pacing from his previous album.
While the new album is still acoustic, this time the songs feature horns, a more noticeable keyboard presence and a very noticeable jazz influence in some of the songs.
Still maintaining his own sound that connects the two albums, and song to song, Brother Neil brought a clean & varied sound to his songs on the new album.
Another change from the last album was developing each song from fresh ideas rather than using something he had previously worked on, (the journals used for songwriting on the previous album). The idea was approach each song as its own entity rather than being concerned with an overall sound.
Although the strong folk influence that was heard on the previous album is still threaded throughout the new album, some of the songs have a pop or jazz tone to them.
While the songs on the first album were solid, this time around Brother Neil delivers an album of very strong songs.
Each song not only stands on its own, but it is the tonal variety of each song and the pacing of the album gives the disc a great overall sound and flow that keeps you listening and anticipating the next song.
‘Away Avenue Away…’ is a dual success for both Brother Neil and long-time friend/collaborator Mike Whaling.
Recorded (in analogue) at Whaling’s Sarahs Hall, ( which you can find on Facebook)
While the production on ‘Bonfire Confessions’ was solid and professional, this time around Whaling has captured the energy and natural flow Brother Neil has in his live shows.
The result is a clean energetic sounding album that flows beautifully that sounds as though you are sitting in front of the Brother Neil as he performs his music.

Lee Rice 
Songwriter and Street Musician from Wales, UK. I have been on an epic 6 year Journey to find the inspiration. Peace, Love & Happiness.
Thanks for coming to my music page.
I'm really enjoying living my life for my passion, which is of course music :-) I'm from North Wales but I've just spent the last 6 years traveling across Europe as a way to focus on my music. The last 5 years has been mainly busking, in 470 places, through 30 countries. It is a truly exhausting and super challenging lifestyle, but I am Grateful for the rewards.
I write and compose my own music and I'm constantly trying to improve and grow.
My influences are really vast and I enjoy most music. The artists I love the most are:
David Gray, Neil Diamond, Tracy Chapman, Bob Dylan, Ray Lamontagne, The Verve, Buddy Holly, U2, David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Nick Cave, Nina Simone, Nora Jones, Eva Cassidy and many, many more :)
