Winners of the 2022 Talent Is Timeless songwriting competition, Brightwell & Moran (previously known as Radio Stranger) are back with “Bare Boards” via Jam Records London.
The American acoustic duo had its start in the city of Portland, Oregon. This track was produced at the legendary Abbey Road studios, and it has a magnificent fusion of folk, country, and Americana sounds. A burning intensity permeates the pair’s playing and words. The resulting song is packed with dramatic highs and lows, and it grabs you from the start and doesn’t let go. Beautiful voices from two of the industry’s most promising newcomers are backed by pulsating guitar rhythms and bursting blasts of mandolin and fiddle.
Together, Kelly Brightwell and Woody Moran carve out a niche for themselves in the business. They have their own distinct sound while also paying homage to legends like Dave Matthews, Paul Simon, and Patty Griffin. They’ve also been compared to today’s scene titans like The Shires. They’ve made no compromises in their quest to satisfy fans of high-quality folk and country music, and their latest effort is a significant stride for the genre.
