Seattle Pi Quicksand Review
June 12, 2013
“Hundreds and probably thousands of CDs are released each month. Here are a few that may have slipped under your radar.
Brendan Kelley may be young (21 years old) but he is already a music veteran. His musical journey has taken him from Massachusetts, to Austin, Texas. and to Nashville, where he recorded his new album,Quicksand. While he is at heart a singer/songwriter, his music has a little bite to it as it moves toward rock and roll. He is an excellent guitarist for his age and the title track is an example of his slide guitar expertise. The hardest rocker on the album is “Live My Dreams,” which is a direction he should explore more often. “Pass Me By” is an acoustic ballad where his fine voice is on display. Quicksand is an excellent release from a young and developing musician.”
