Love Will Find You (Bonus Track Version) by Findlay Brown on Apple Music

EDITORS’ NOTES

Not since Chris Issak’s first few albums has anyone revived the romantic grandeur of the early ‘60s as convincingly as Findlay Brown does on Love Will Find You. This British singer/songwriter harkens back to the sort of epochal yearning Roy Orbison captured nearly 50 years ago. Ballads like “Nobody Cared” and “Everybody Needs Love” are affecting pop arias, stately and tender. Brown embraces doo-wop on “Teardrops Lost In the Rain” and adds a lush tropical flavor to “If I Could Do It Again (I’d Do It With You).” If heartache is his specialty, he’s also capable of galloping country-rock, as “That’s Right” shows. Most impressive is “I Had a Dream,” a slowly unfolding expression of devotion delivered with passion and elegance. Bernard Butler’s production approach is worthy of special praise for its ability to creatively update Phil Spectorian ideas about sonic depth and perspective. Reverb-bathed guitars, throbbing horns and swelling strings add rich color to Brown’s cleanly contoured melodies.

About Findlay Brown

British singer/songwriter Findlay Brown spent his formative years bare-knuckle fighting in the East Ridings region of Yorkshire. A chance encounter with a Jimi Hendrix record eventually turned the jail-bound youth from brawler to musician, and upon relocating to York, Brown became immersed in the local music scene. Financially destitute, the newly minted artist sold the Beatles autographs his grandfather had given him, bought himself a guitar, and eventually moved to London to pursue a solo career. Brown’s unique blend of psychedelic rock and alternative country soon caught the ear of London-based record label All Good Things, who released his debut single, "Down Among the Dead Men," in May 2006. That same year he signed to Peacefrog Records and released the EP Losing the Will to Survive, followed by the full-length Separated by the Sea in 2007. His U.S. debut, Love Will Find You, arrived in 2009 on the Verve Forecast label. ~ James Christopher Monger
