“[In her playing,] an intense involvement is revealed as the music appears to wash over her. She sings of experiences way beyond her years, old songs from Appalachian sources, stories that reflect a more difficult way of life.” — John Cohen (Musicologist, photographer, filmmaker and founding member of the New Lost City Ramblers)
“Nora’s playing the fretless version of the banjo is more in tune with its African ancestry. It allows a seamless glissando, a spirited game of snakes and ladders, doggedly climbing and then slipping easily back to the start.” —UK Folk Radio
Nora Brown, at 16 years of age, plays with beauty and depth in the performances captured on her new album, Sidetrack My Engine. Recorded in mono, live to tape in a large 19th century vaulted stone cellar, below the streets of Brooklyn, the album combines the raw and immediate quality of a folkloric field recording with the audio fidelity of a studio album.
Nora is joined on the album by Jackson Lynch and Jerron “Blindboy” Paxton, hailed by the New York Times as “easily the most talented young acoustic bluesman to come along in many, many years.”
The album is available via digital download and on 10” white vinyl in a signed and numbered first edition with liner notes booklet, letterpress download card, and custom printed 100% recycled chipboard jackets with art drawn by Nora Brown.
