Rick Brandeburg's New CD: --- Hear it on CD BABY »

Here is the Review from Portland Papers:

           No Ordinary Passion by Rick Brandeburg This album has a little bit of everything. Rock, Reggae, World Beat, beautiful vocal harmonies and power ballad love songs. It features some great Portland Musicians. Dylan Vance, Slide & Electric guitar, Griff Bear, Acoustic and Electric Violin, Matt Rotchford on Bass and Jon Beyer on Drums, and Rick Brandeburg on Vocals, Harmonies, Acoustic and Electric Guitar, and Harmonica. Rick is long time Portland musician, who looked back over his catalogue of songs and picked each specific song that he thought this all-star group of players could really shine on. And shine they did! Rick who produced the album, also wanted to feature his son in law, Dylan Vance whom Rick thinks is one of the best slide players around. Vance comes through with smoking hot and soaring leads that will pin your hair back and make you wonder, "who is this guy".

         So whether it is the dazzling Reggae and World Beat of Rotchford's Bass on Soul Revolution, or the rounding out the groove with Beyers tasteful Rhythmic Beat, or the communion of Bear's haunting violin to the reggae sound, playing his harmonies around the beat, these boys know how to Rock! Brandeburg's vocals and arrangements make you feel the very essence of his lyrics and he creates some serious musical alchemy, singing with his longtime co-hort Karen Kaisar. Both Rick and Karen had taken breaks from performing, but they came back into the studio with a soulful vengeance, singing each verse like it was their last. There is a lot of music out there to compete against, but if you want to listen to some seasoned pros who know how to make you boogie right in your seat, with great lyrics and a Oneness of Musicianship, Not Ordinary Passion is an Album, Not to be Missed!
