Cursery Rhymes

 

is the latest full length solo album by Kym Brown, recorded mostly

at the studio of producer Lord Fader (aka Lord Veda) in London.

Brown's production work under Fader's mentorship conjured a rare alchemy that would manifest in this delightfully dark-ish pop oddity.

 

Other notable contributions include mastering and mixing by Grammy award winning Irish engineer Richard Rainey (U2), instrumentation by John Fortis (Ellie Goulding), additional mixing by Gareth Parton (Foals) and Canadian producers John Ellis & Mark Henning. (see below credits)

 

Pre-released on itunes autumn 2015, the album received it's first airplay by renowned London tastemaker Eddy Temple Morris. Officially released in Canada Jan 2016, the album was featured "CD OF THE WEEK" by Canadian rock critic veteran Tom Harrison (The Province, 05/01/16),  and made it's first Canadian radio appearance on Vancouver's CITR FM 02/02/16. At present the album is receiving global airplay from college and independent radio alike.
