BRIAN BYRNE TOURS EASTERN CANADA WITH CORB LUND
October 24, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment NewsBrian Byrne is continuing to tour in support of his sophomore solo album Tailor Made which was released in September on Kindling Music. Tailor Made takes a more definitive country and southern rock direction than Byrne’s debut so it’s a great match to team up with country roots artist Corb Lund for this eastern Canadian tour.
This time out Byrne turned to influences such as Steve Earle, Gram Parsons, The Allmans, Willie, Waylon, Johnny and Hank with stories of too much drink, late night characters, missing loved ones and trying to find a way back home. Banjos, pianos, pedal steels, harps and beer-bottle slides all find their rightful place on the new album.
“Tailor Made opens with the wailing pop-rock number All I Need Is Love, before going into the title track, a classic driving song and guitar rocker with a country-outlaw feel. It's a smoker, the kind of cut a whole career can be built around.” – Bob Mersereau, Telegraph Journal
“It’s time to party thanks to this rousing rock’n roll gem from a man who may be one of Canada¹s most underrated (and unknown) artist…If ever there was an artist capable of conquering both country and rock genres, Byrne is it. With Tailor Made, he has the potential to take the music world by storm.” - Al Beeber, Lethbridge Herald
“Tailor Made pleases a wide range of listeners with lively songs like Mountain Feelin’ and emotionally-charged tunes such as Beautiful You and Love You More. Chill out to Home at home, or to The One, The Only (King of Late Night) late at night.” - Vincent Lok, YouThink Magazine
“Tailor Made opens with the lively “All I Need is Love,” but it quickly sheds its pop roots veneer and dives into the kind of music that recalls the outlaw country and gritty southern rock of the Allman Brothers, Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams.— Julio Gomes, The Chronicle-Journal
