Just The Way That It Goes

Isaiah B Brunt

Independent Release 2015

Review by David Bowling


Producer and former studio owner Isaiah B Brunt has traveled from his native Australia all the way to New Orleans to record his new album titled Just The Way That It Goes.

He is basically an electric blues story teller. He pays homage to  classic American blues but his slide technique and use of a wah-wah pedal propel the sound into the present. He may not be flashy but he is a master technician who is able to convey emotion and a personal connection though his music. Bassist Richard Bird and drummer Mark Whitaker are a competent rhythm section and provide a solid foundation for his guitar expertise.

Tracks such as “Lovers Blues,” “She’s So Fine,” “The River Runs High,” and “Never Give Up” are aggressive pieces of fusion blues.

Isaiah Brunt may be a long way from home but he has embraced an American music form with Just The Way That It Goes.
