Brad Colerick drew a line in the dirt 20 years ago when he gave up making records to make music for commercials. With the release of Cottonwood last year, he crossed that line and now takes a big step forward with his follow up CD, Lines in the Dirt. With contributions from Suzy Bogguss, Larry Klein, Herb Pedersen and April Verch, Dirt fulfills the promise of Cottonwood. Boasting nine compelling originals and two well-chosen covers, Colerick takes the listener on a journey through his life and his stories. The playing is sharp and crisp, the songs deep and affecting. Colerick delivers another round of intimate and thoughtful vocals for an album bound to please any fan of honest music making.
