Singer-songwriter BRANDON RICKMAN has created a definite buzz over the past several years in the bluegrass and country community with his distinctive vocals and songwriting talents. He currently tours with the LONESOME RIVER BAND and also performs solo dates as well.
You might have seen Brandon singing lead on the Late Show with David Letterman performance as part of the Lonesome River Band along with special guest, Steve Martin. Please visit Brandon’s video page to see the interview and performance.
YOUNG MAN, OLD SOUL is his first solo album and came right on the heels of Lonesome River Band’s #1 Bluegrass Unlimited album NO TURNING BACK.” Since that time, Brandon has also been part of numerous other albums by Lonesome River Band including: Still Learning and Chronology Volumes One – Three.
“In his solo album Young Man, Old Soul Brandon Rickman has effectively mined the rich vein lying between bluegrass and country music to produce a dozen songs that communicate the experience of maturing the hard way. The songs, many of them familiar to fans who attend performances of the Lonesome River Band, capture images of lost youth, true love, missed opportunities, and the ever-growing awareness that life is short, sweet, and poignant. Rickman’s voice and lyrics are straightforward and honest. His soulful singing is sincere and just rough enough to suggest a chaw stuck in his lip. These twelve songs effortlessly give off an odor of truth that captures the spirit and imagination. It’s truly a masterful production.” TED LEHMANN
