WEBSTER—Brett and Lisa (Wilson) Brumby are doing anything but slowing down in their late fifties. In fact, the musical couple, which has enjoyed a 30-plus year history of live performance and recording in Central Massachusetts, is gearing up with fresh enthusiasm and drive to reach its niche audience.
Brumbylon’s self-produced debut record, “Through the Noise,” drops on Nov. 1, 2019, with a record release show at Point Breeze in Webster, where Brett and Lisa are complemented by a full band of acclaimed local and regional musicians on the main stage.
While the music itself is challenging to pigeonhole, with a variety of styles and cross-genre hybridization, the classic rock influence is present throughout, with contemplative songs such as “Waiting” that hints at Pink Floyd and the Moody Blues, and riff-centric rock tunes such as “Crazy” that are reminiscent of Heart and Pat Benatar.
What stands out throughout the record is the vocal stamp of Brumbylon: lush harmonies and well-crafted melodies that nod at iconic pop giants of the 1970s such as Fleetwood Mac and CSN. Remarkably, it delivers both the polish of a fine-tuned studio production and the feel of a live recording.
Brett and Lisa believe that a generation of classic rock enthusiasts is ready for new music that reflects a wide range of life experience. Brumbylon asserts boldly that it is never too late to dream big and achieve at high levels. Thematically, their songs reflect years of personal growth, inner struggles and breakthroughs, and the ins-and-outs of their long-standing relationship, combining fresh energy with maturity and wisdom that can be tapped by individuals on their own life journeys. Lighter moments, as featured in the acoustic “Mojo,” and the jazzy, self-empowering message of “True” round out the record in all the right places.
Speaking of which, Brumbylon (pronounced brum-ba-lon) has just released the single, “True,” which is featured on the album, and is now available for free download exclusively on the artists’ website and Facebook page. Ticket information on the Nov. 1 release show is also available in both locations.
