This week’s Tuned In Tuesday is brought to you by Newfoundland born, Halifax based singer songwriter Don Brownrigg. Yet another artist that I saw at East Coast Music Week and absolutely loved. His stage presence had the audience laughing with his stories, even if his band wouldn’t let him tell many of them. My favourite song off of his album ‘It Takes All Kinds (To Make This World I Find)’ is by far “Just Breathe”.
It has such a relaxing sound to it. You can use the song to live up to its title by just letting yourself breathe to it – to take a minute and just relax. The music is soothing and allows your mind to just wander for the four or so minutes. There’s a raw emotion in the song that just makes you want to delve further into his story and album.

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
