CD Review: Paul Brady Returns With "Hooba Dooba"
The new album begins with a couple of pop stand-outs "Cry It Out" and "Rainbow". The latter spotlighting Jerry Douglas on lap steel guitar. The album really takes off with the wonderful song-writing of "The Price Of Fame" as Paul Brady looks back on his career. The fragility in his voice trying to hit the high notes in "On More Today" only adds to the songs overall appeal. Paul Brady steps into the blues on the acoustic, back porch strumming of "Follow That Star". Paul pours his soul into the heartfelt ballad "Mother and Son", then returns with an acoustic folk cover of The Beatles' "You Won't See Me". The album finishes strong with the wonderfully balanced "Living The Mystery".
Paul Brady has some scattered dates this summer all over Europe, mostly performing at festivals. For more information, visit Paul's website, paulbrady.com and make sure to check out his new album.
