Findlay Brown – Songs Of Inspiration


A wistful, romantic and heartfelt collection of oldies here from folk troubadour Findlay Brown. Great to see sounds like this getting some recognition. As an aside – be sure to seek out the remixes done for Findlay Brown by Pilooski, Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve and Mickey Moonlight. All are golden.

“I started listening to a lot of stuff which I knew so well but almost took for granted – songs you never paid serious attention to because they are so well known. Songs like My Girl, Be My Baby, Stand By Me. I start listening to them in a different way, and working out what was so great about them. I’m not saying the songs I’ve written as a result can stand up next to them, but I’m not ashamed to try and aspire to those standards.” – Findlay Brown
