Brian Cadd Silver CityI thought Brian Cadd’s 2016 album, Bulletproof, was the finest of his storied career. Silver City is just as good.

Produced in Nashville with Aussie ex-pat Mark Moffatt, this Americana album is the record Cadd was always destined to make, with its obvious antecedents being Axiom – the trailblazing country-rock band Cadd shared with Glenn Shorrock – as well as the legendary Flying Burrito Brothers, which counted Cadd as a member in the ’90s. The songwriting is exemplary – Don Henley would be proud of Everybody’s Leaving.

“Another morning, another story,” Cadd sings. And his remarkable career continues.

Silver City is out Feb 1 via Fanfare/Sony.
