Phoenix, Arizona via Massachusetts artist Brian Chartrand has been busy! This prolific singer/songwriter released four albums in 2008: his first solo-acoustic effort, "Sleeping With Giants," “the Show Low sessions” by his rootsy acoustic trio Ten Dollar Outfit, “Laurel & Sunset” by The Sweet Remains, a harmony-driven collaboration between Brian, Rich Price, and Greg Naughton, and lastly, “Out Of The Ether,” his latest solo EP. 2009 is showing no signs of letting up! In April 2009, Chartrand released “Live at the Historic Yuma Theater” with his band, Ten Dollar Outfit. Ten Dollar Outfit is also in the process of releasing its live performance from the McDowell Mountain Music Festival from April 25th. Tracking has also begun on the second Sweet Remains studio album, as well as another yet-to-be-named recording project featuring jazz artists, Mike Florio (drums) and Mel Brown (bass). Brian’s last completed solo studio work, “Out Of The Ether,” was recorded in August 2008 in Queen Creek, AZ with local producer Mr. Fantastical. While every song is rooted in a classic, acoustic folk tradition, this EP explores new influences, new instrumentations and pushes the boundaries of what a “singer/songwriter” album should sound like. OUT OF THE ETHER “Falling Away” pulses with a thick dance club bass line and swirling strings. “How Thin These Walls” is bluesy, stripped down, and raw. “Coffin Man” juxtaposes 80’s pop soul with dirty, bluesy vocals and sprinkles in some chain gang chanting for texture. “4 Seasons” is a light acoustic ballad celebrating the seasons of New England. “The Long Way Home” pushes the listener lyrically as well as sonically by playing with time signatures, major/minor chord progressions, and eastern influenced instrumentation.
