Ten Mornings

As a member of the Brindley Brothers and as a solo artist, Luke Brindley has built a respectable reputation as a singer and songwriter with an intuitive pop know-how and a keen melodic sensibility. Here he reinvents himself by opting to play a supporting role in a trio more concerned with conjuring Jayhawks-esque folky pop. The songs are mostly of the singalong variety, with harmonies consistently in full bloom—and although they can sound a wee bit precious at times, their charms are undeniable. The group also excels as songwriters, with “Know Your Love,” “Hudson River,” “Virginia” and “Let Me Down Easy” coming across as both agile and ageless, even on first hearing. For Luke Brindley, Ten Mornings represents a grand reawakening.
