Thats Where Its At! is Michael Jerome Brownes latest collection, focusing on soul music through the lens of a traditional blues player. Recorded largely live off the floor in Sherbrooke and Montréal (Québec) and Hamilton (Ontario), Michaels fingerstyle guitar and warm, unaffected vocals are front and centre, accompanied only by John McColgans funky drumming on five songs.
Thats Where Its At! is the new album on Borealis Records, available February 8, 2019. This album focuses on the connection between blues and soul, the stripped-down accompaniment consisting only of Michaels guitar, with drummer John McColgan on five tracks. Vocal guests include Harrison Kennedy, Roxanne Potvin and Eric Bibb. Five originals are mixed in with songs from Sam Cooke, Bobby Blue Bland, Al Green, and Stevie Wonder, as well as two spirituals from way back- the roots of gospel and soul.
To celebrate and share this outstanding new recording, Michael Jerome Browne will be on tour throughout Canada in the coming months, starting with industry showcases at both Blues Summit Nine in Toronto and Folk Alliance International in Montreal.
