Real deal.

Heartfelt, soulful, gritty vocals and piano from Mississippi native Eden Brent. Beautifully produced by Colin Linden to have that real old school analog vibe. This is the kind of music that makes you move and makes you smile. Don't miss Ms. Brent!

Eden Brent and Paul Oscher: Two Performers’ Distinctive Expression of the Blues

By John Morthland, Contributor

Before moving into 2011, I wanted to address a pair of albums that I couldn't work into any columns late last year, when they were actually released. On the surface, relative newcomer Eden Brent's Ain't Got No Troubles and veteran Paul Oscher's Bet on the Blues couldn't be more different: Oscher is the down-home blues purist, while Brent blends and weaves the form into music that is bluesy, but not necessarily blues.

They Say All Music Guide

Eden Brent hails from Greenville, MS, a place steeped in the Delta blues, but she’s only 300 miles from New Orleans, and it’s that city’s carefree rhythms and happy-go-lucky attitude that informs the music on Brent’s second album. Brent is a piano player with an impressive groove anchored by a strong rhythmic left hand and a playful way with the high end of the keyboard. Her vocals are just as strong, with a smoky, sultry feel that often brings to mind Janis Joplin, but a mellower Joplin who doesn’t have to strain for the high notes or growl to get her point across. She’s also a first-class songwriter, using the blues as a jumping-off place for her ironic musings on the familiar subjects of good times and no-good men. She cut this album in New Orleans and is joined by some remarkable players, including ex-Meter George Porter on bass, producer Colin Linden on guitar, and ace Americana drummer Bryan Owings. Together they romp through a varied program that includes “Someone to Love,” a funky you-done-me-wrong rhumba driven by Brent’s rolling New Orleans piano and a vocal that dismisses her ex with an offhand elegance; Colin Linden’s “Later Than You Think,” given a jazzy ragtime treatment with Brent’s earthy left hand and Linden’s guitar trading solos before she takes off on her own mellow excursion; “If I Can’t,” a throwback to the ’20s played by Brent and Linden with a funky, ragged charm; and a rousing juke-joint take on her own “Let’s Boogie-Woogie,” a showcase for her impressive piano skills. – j. poet
