Brett Martin Hoerner

Somewhere in Sonoma

2016-11-01

This artist is a Michigan born folk musician and a former WYCE intern and programmer. There is truly some talented musicianship on this album, notably the banjo, fiddle, and guitar. Brett Martin Hoerner was inspired by his travels to places away from mainstream society that depend on the conditions of nature for daily living. His experiences manifest in his album. It takes you on a journey and you feel as though you are a fellow companion on the artist's trip through the west while enjoying their campfire songs and stories. Only downside is that the vocals do get a bit fuzzy when they peak at certain times. Tracks 1, 2, and 7 stood out as the most fun to listen to for me.
