Graham Brown is a Vancouver based roots rock veteran honing his craft over an incredible 20 year discography that spans several cult bands (Jr. Gone Wild, Brilliant Orange, Happyman), major labels (BMG, A&M), coveted indies (Zulu Records, Not Lame), and incredible reviews from roots/Americana media around the world.
At the legendary Cavern Club, Liverpool, Graham was the highlight of a Bongo Beat showcase and garnered rare praise and a live broadcast over BBC Liverpool with noted DJ/writer/roots music historian Spencer Leigh.
The prestigious Americana.UK site gave this album 4 out of 5 stars ("There's good songwriting and playing here and the album as a whole has an effortless sound to it").
Rootstime (Belgium) namechecks Crazy Horse, Nick Lowe, Dave Edmunds and Rockpile in its 4 1/2 star review (out of 5).
Graham's grit-fueled harmonica, concisive guitar work and hook laden songwriting are this year's revelation in Americana.
For 2010, Graham is touring across Canada and Europe with his rough-hewn band of Prairie Dogs; tearing up the landscape with his patented brand of Western Canadian fervour.
"Summer is here, so it's probably about time you started auditioning contenders for albums to listen to with the windows open Sunday afternoon. May we present Contender # 1 , weighing in at 36 minutes, Vancouver's Graham Brown & The Prairie Dogs with Do What You Should..." Matt Hutchinson - Americana - UK
