The 5 Browns

Saw their CD on display in Borders and was intrigued by the idea of them. Five brothers and sisters who are Juilliard-trained, piano-playing geniuses. Now typically I’m not much one for classical music. I like it every once and a while, but eventually it all begins to blur together, and I can’t distinguish one piece from another. I don’t have an iPod, and I don’t like to listen to the radio because there is so much talk and so many commercials…so I listen to CD’s. As such, I like the songs on an artist’s CD to have distinctive sounds so I don’t get bored. I like versatility. I visited the website of The 5 Browns, and it seems like critics agree they have it in abundance. I listened to a few tracks on and a couple on their website, and I think they could conceivably win me over. I love ‘new discoveries’, be it in books, music, restaurants, or ice cream varieties—I like to latch onto ‘The Next Big Thing’ as much as everyone else does and pretend I was there at the onset. So…I might just have to buy one of their CD’s and see if they can win me over. Five wholesome, fun-loving, talented siblings—what’s not to like? Besides, they’re homegrown—from Houston just like me.

I will confess that I did tell my husband I wished I had their Amazon rating…
