REVIEWS

Pacem is one of those albums that works on the listener from the inside out. The more I listen, the more I am astonished by its depth and intricacy. The album begins with a Chant of St. Ignatius extolling the divinity of all things and ends with a lyrical, plaintive folk song. Between these two pieces are masterfully constructed songs, stream of consciousness epic ballads, and a piano instrumental where Brown gently demonstrates his virtuoso talents and interpretive depth. ”
Ira Israel, Huffington Post

‘Keeper Of The Flame’ and ‘Here Comes My Love’ are everything you’d ask for in classic folk/pop songs with sentiments of hope and happiness. “Here Comes My Love” especially feels like a warm hug…”
Cassandra Popescu, CanadianBeats.ca

“Part of what has always made Brown an MVP on the scene is his generosity, and on what is ostensibly a solo record he often surrenders vocals to his peers: Fenner, Corley, Suzanne Jarvie, and, on the opening track “Prayer of St. Ignatius” (“The Prayer for Generosity”), classical singer Sherry Zbrovsky. It’s the most musically diverse collection Brown has ever put out, and it’s a welcome return from a songwriter who has a lot to give.”
Michael Barclay, Radio Free Canuckistan
