Briget Boyle Releases New Album “The Next Line”: Stream
- Oakland-based folk/rock singer-songwriter Briget Boyle released her new album “The Next Line” for the first time in four years.
Briget Boyle is the lead singer and percussionist for the Balkan ensemble Brass Menažeri, “The Next Line” is her second solo album following "The Parts Interior".
The album was produced by Michael Shiono and recorded at Bird & Egg Recording Studio in Richmond, CA.
The album's sound is close to Rock unlike her debut album. Especially, "Middle We Meet" features wild slide guitar like Pink Floyd's David Gilmour.
But the last track "Keep It Simple" is so beautiful, cinematic and emotional sound.
Briget Boyle said of the album:
"I started working on The Next Line in early 2017. After approaching producer Mike Shiono about coming on board for the project, I buckled down and started working hard on the new collection of music I had written since the completion of my first album ‘The Parts Interior.’ Mike and I met up a few times to talk through the tunes and make a game plan for the recording and he reached out to his community of studio players to put together the stellar line-up of players that were to join us in the studio. As we were laying the music down in February of 2018, it started to become clear that ‘The Next Line’ was going to be a rock record, which is something that I had been dreaming of from my early days of songwriting. The big sound, with dynamics, grit, and edge, started to present itself during tracking. I left every session feeling excited and energized by what we were discovering and it has taken all my strength to sit on the completed music. I am so excited to share this project with the world!"
