"A hymn to and a cry for the American West..."
-Brian Doyle, Portland Magazine
"Much like an archetypal ski bum, Brennan's songs flee from structure, full of asymmetrical verses and irregular line lengths, and avoiding rhyme like it's avian flu. Brennan's clearly following the speak-singing storytelling style of Greg Brown or Tom Waits...If you can't afford your own mountain cabin, this album will take you right there."
Cut live at 8500 ft in a log cabin, at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon in the Wasatch Rockies. This record is 100% Acoustic. No headphones. No overdubs. Only mics.
Little Cottonwood is an aural collection of short stories. This is your Sunday morning record.
Shortly after Telluride Bluegrass Festival selected Brennan as first alternate in their songwriting competition, he headed to Alta, Utah to cut "Little Cottonwood," and is releasing it nationally in a grassroots partnership with Berkeley-based Clif Bar, as a part of the Keep It Simple philosophy of their new Clif Nectar bar.
