Singer Songwriter, Brad Tucson returns with a fourth Solo Album called “Tucson”. Of course this reference to Tucson, AZ but the album is also a sepia-toned vision of the west. A painting based on Ballads, South-western vistas en Mid-western prairies.

An album not so much about Tucson itself, but what the geographical spot means for this Californian based artist. Reflecting on how his grandparents left Nebraska for Arizona, his parents are making the same move now, this is about saying goodbye to old friends and saying hello to new ones. But Colerick might be Californian based; his roots are still in Nebraska. Songs like Late “Winter Snow”, the bluegrass tune “Brakeman’s Door” or “The hands of Time” are excellent examples of all this. Amongst all this you also find yourself a handful of excellent country tunes and some nice ballads. Tucson is a fine example of a singer songwriter album full of roots en country influences.
