"Delicate Eyes" by Brian L. Hughes (Folk Artist from Seattle, Washington (WA))

"Delicate Eyes" is the latest offering by folk singer/songwriter Brian L. Hughes. Mr. Hughes is a born lyricist and self-described "hopeless romantic." This CD is full of love songs sung in a style reminiscent of folk music of the 60's and 70's. Brian's voice calls back memories of Dylan and Johnny Cash and is perfect for these songs! The poetic lyrics are set very simply with a single vocal line and acoustic guitar - an artistic choice which matches the simplicity of the message of these songs. Even the recording and mixing which is done by the artist adds to the "grass-roots Americana" feel of this album. The beautiful "Breath of Our Design" is an example of the fine writing that characterizes Mr. Hughes' songs with lyrics that resist and wrap around the traditional 8-bar phrase. Folk music fans will love this music from the heart! Pick up a copy today!
