“From the beginning you are immersed in a mellow, melodious acoustic guitar driven intro that gives way into a swinging horn section, and eventually a very catchy slide guitar hook. We are greeted by Brent’s subtle yet resonate voice that really carries the tune from start to finish with it’s rich, deep tones, noticeably in the chorus, where his voice seems to really take over. “My New Life” branches out with very rustic sounding violin and banjo hooks, and a chorus that could’ve come straight out of an old country ballad. “Second Line” gets back to the horns with a fun start and stop verse, which builds into a horn driven chorus that shows off Brent’s very full voice while still maintaining a bit of restraint throughout. All in all, “Not How We Dream” is an impressive debut release, which is stylistically straight-forward yet instrumentally diverse, showcases a very talented voice, has a high production value, and is great for a laid back summer afternoon.”
