AHOY and WELCOME!
NEWS: I'm delighted to announce "Popmatters" is premiering the new album RUN TINY HUMAN now with exclusive streaming! Get on over there and listen and read the nice chat I had with Jedd Beaudoin, too. My thanks to both Popmatters and Jedd.
"Popdose ", meanwhile, is featuring an exclusive premiere of Kristiana Weseloh's haunting video of Wedding Song (Bag of Bones) off RUN TINY HUMAN. Krissy set the song perfectly, and I'm grateful to her, Popdose and Rob Ross.
I can't possibly express enough thanks to Zaph Mann/In Memory of John Peel, John B. Jones of XRAY-FM/Hello Cruel World, Rich Lindsay of KBOO/Radio Lost and Found and Robert Richter/Local Roots all for sharing songs off the new album!
The album release show will be November 9, 2018 at St. David of Wales in Portland, Oregon.
RUN TINY HUMAN will be officially released October 19, 2018 and can be found exclusively on Bandcamp along with my other albums! There were some good, solid reasons I moved the release from summer to fall, but I mainly realized I hate summer and that the album (and I!) are way better suited to autumn.
My wonderful clever sis is helping me (ok, doing the lion's share of the work) to overhaul this website. It'll magically switch over at some point, any day now, wait for it! My undying thanks to the excellent Kim Tyburski for creating this site here for me all the way back when I put out Ormolu.
I especially appreciate the help of Howard Wuelfing re: the sharing/promoting part of the album, which I'm, personally, particularly rancid at. Thanks, Howard!
A huge thank you to my longtime, highly valued partner in toil, Jeff Stuart Saltzman, and my dear bandmates, Jeff Langston (bass--Antony & the Johnsons, Mo Phillips), Ben Landsverk (viola, fuzz guitar, vocals--Wonderly, Hawks & Doves), Leigh Marble (guitars--Leigh Marble). Also, to guests Justin Harris (bass, bari sax--Menomena, Bloc Party); Gayle & Philip Neuman (De Organographia--trombones, clarinet, chalumeau, cornet, recorder); Mark Powers (drums--Floater); Joe Mengis (drums--Eels); Katie Taylor (vocals--Opera Theater Oregon); Lisa Stringfield-Prescott (vocals--Ages and Ages); Jim Brunberg (and fam! vocals--Wonderly, Box Set); Jade Maniscalco (vocals). Double thanks to Jeff Stuart Saltzman (Cerebral Corps, Sunset Valley) for letting me coerce him into also playing synths, guitar, and muttering.
PLEASE NOTE: Can't say it enough: all my stuff is available for purchase exclusively on Bandcamp. I made the decision to ditch all other online outlets/digital distribution, including iTunes and Amazon, when I put out 'Falimy.' Stupid, you may say, but it made me feel better for some reason.
Coming up: A new video for the new album by my sis, Katie Taylor! Stay tuned.
Posting stuff on the FB. Come on over!
That's about it for now. Except to say, without your support, it'd be very lonely out here. Thank you, one and all.

"The Rachel Taylor Brown Music Page." Thanks, Zakk. :)
p.s...That two of my songs were included in the Loud Family/Game Theory legend Scott Miller's book, "Music: What Happened?" is probably one of the things that makes me the most proud ever. Scott Miller died Monday, April 15, 2013. I will always be grateful to him, and to Sue Trowbridge for sharing my music with him.
