Everybody's Talkin' (Ceili Music, 2002)

Paul Brewster

Reviewed by George Hauenstein

Paul Brewster is a bluegrass veteran. His resume includes a lengthy stint with the Osborne Brothers and more recently, a decade-long association with Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder. His debut on Skaggs' label is a fine showcase for his smooth tenor.

Covers include the title track, a pair from the Don Williams' repertoire, "Lord I Hope This Day Is Good" and "'Til The Rivers All Run Dry," Bill Monroe's "Kentucky Waltz" and Kris Kristofferson's, "Darby's Castle." Brewster himself wrote five of the tunes, including two great gospel numbers, the up-tempo, "Is It Finished," and the soulful, "Saviour, Lord And Guide." Two of the finest tunes are "Slowly I'm Falling To Pieces," (with some great harmony from Dolly Parton) and "Don't Go."

Brewster is ably backed by his Kentucky Thunder bandmates, including Skaggs on mandolin and vocals. Though not a household name, Paul Brewster's warm and pleasing vocal style ranks among the best in today's bluegrass and makes this CD well worth the listen.
