I’ve been very, very excited to make a mention about a very, very talented singer-songwriter from the Bryan-College Station area — Ian Nelson. Ian possesses an innate ability to craft songs that are not only unique in their styling and nature, but that also tap into the earnest emotions of the heart. It’s been a long time since I’ve heard someone that is this fresh in their music career sound as if they have been on the road, cutting songs for years. Yes, his music is that good. He draws instant comparisons vocally to an early, Greenwich Village Bob Dylan, while musically, channeling Nebraska-era Bruce Springsteen with stark, haunting blues. Ian has a yet-to-be-named album on the way that I’m pretty geeked to hear, and you can be sure that you’ll get the details of it right here as they come along. He’ll be playing two sets at the Frame Gallery (216 N. Bryan Ave.) from around 7-9:30. I promise you, you won’t regret being there!
For those locally, if you haven’t had a chance to check out First Fridays in downtown Bryan, well then you’ve just been missing out. Most of the businesses, restaurants, galleries, and pubs downtown will have lots of great things going on, and are open late. Check out the First Fridays schedule here.
P.S. This is my last post until after I take my LSAT on Saturday morning, so wish me a speedy recovery!
