Guthrie Brown made his pilgrimage to Nashville at the tender age of 17 and has been honing his chops as a charismatic pop-rock craftsman ever since. His latest EP, Keeping On, makes suave yet sensitive, musically-savvy use of airy R&B, folk-pop and doo-wop sounds.
B-Sides & Badlands
Life isn’t meant to be comfortable, a sequence of fleeting moments as pleasantly forgettable as the last. We’re born with a collection of devices at our fingertips, and we can challenge normalcy if we so dare. Flighty and resistant, Nashville transplant Guthrie Brown is never further from the ground than he is when taking risks, owning his one and only shot with abandon. It’s not reckless; it’s just feels right. “If we live for nothing, that’s what we get / Always wanting something from our consciousness,” he sings on the titular cut to his brand new EP, Keeping On. He bares witness to the proclamation of living an honest life doing what he loves. Originally from the self-proclaimed “old Montana,” Brown slips between his reliably grounded folk songwriting and the kind of ice-tea-stirred R&B music of the highest order.
