Acclaimed singer/songwriter Pieta Brown will release her new album Postcards on March 10th via Lustre Records. True to its name, Postcards explores the role of distance and isolation through collaboration in which Brown enlisted a guest artist for each track via mail. She released the first single "Street Tracker," premiered by Guitar World, which features guitar legend Mark Knopfler who completed the song in London.
It was in hotel rooms across the country that Pieta wrote most of the songs onPostcards. Like any touring musician, Pieta was on the road to survive, balancing the rewards of performing music for a living with the challenges of trying to stay connected to loved ones and other artists while in motion. So, in order to keep in touch, she decided to send out "musical postcards." These were stripped-down, acoustic shells of the new songs she'd written while traveling. In addition to Knopfler, she sent them to folks like Calexico, Mason Jennings, David Lindley, Mike Lewis, and Carrie Rodriguez among others. Her instructions to each were simple: complete the song and write back.
