Mark on Pieta Brown's new album
« on: March 26, 2017, 03:14:53 AM »
I came across this today from acouticguitar.com.
Highlights of the album include Knopfler’s distinctive guitar on “Street Tracker”;

Like many musicians who spend a decent amount of time on the road, Americana songstress Pieta Brown found it difficult to stay connected with her loved ones while actively touring. So when she returned home, she decided to put a unique spin on staying in touch. Brown sent a series of musical postcards—stripped-down, acoustic shells of song she’d written while traveling—to her friends and mentors with a simple message: Complete the song and send it back.
The result is her new album Postcards (Lustre Records), in which each of the ten tracks features a special guest, including Mark Knopfler, Calexico, Carrie Rodriguez, Mason Jennings, David Lindley, Mike Lewis (saxophonist for Bon Iver), the Pines, and others. Brown recorded the basic acoustic guitar and vocals for the album, some with frequent collaborator and guitarist/producer Bo Ramsey in the mix, at a small garage studio before mailing out each track for friends to finish.
“This Postcards project was done at a time when I was struggling with some of the limitations I was feelings as an independent artist, and mother, living in Iowa,” Brown says. “So, these collaborations that ended up happening surprised and inspired and touched me. And they also opened up my mind to new ways of experimenting with recording and collaborating.”
