Randall Bramblett - Thin Places - New West Records

Since the early 1970’s multi-instrumentalist, ace studio musician and singer and songwriter Randall Bramblett has been a significant footnote in rock history. Not everyone can stand in the spotlight, yet Randall has had a substantial studio career performing with Widespread Panic, Elvin Bishop, Government Mule, the reunited Traffic, Robbie Robertson, and Steve Winwood.

Bramblett is probably best known for the work with his primary band project, Sealevel formed when the Allman Brothers broke up “for the first time” in the mid-Seventies with Chuck Leavell, Lamar Williams and “Jaimoe.”

Influenced by R&B, gospel, blues, and rock, Bramblett is an accomplished musician and plays keyboards, saxophone, guitar, mandolin, and harmonica. Thin Places is his fifth solo album and like many of his previous outings, Randall writes of the connecting themes we all have in our lives.

Bramblett’s previous records are all treasures and Thin Places is no different. A genuine fusion of Southern soul and rock with rich, warm playing, songs like “Nobody’s Problem,” “You Can Be The Rain,” “Black Coat,” “Playing Card,” and “Gotta Stop Somewhere” make this an album guaranteed for repeated listening.
