Brando Quin opens up once again and draws us into his rich Irish/English American heritage giving us yet another award winning album of unique, original, expressive and harmonic American-life Folk/Rock.

The Award Winning CD contains eleven original songs written and composed by Brando including, "The Sofa League of Heroes", "The Perfect Three Love Rules" and "Beautiful Giselle" as an aditional bonus feature Brando sings, "I Can't Make You Love Me" written by Allen Shamblin and Mike Reid for Bonnie Raitt's 1991 award winning album, "Luck of the Draw". Bonnie Raitt is one of Brando's longtime admired Musician/Singer/Songwriters, licensing provided by ICG, BMG and ALMO Music Corp.

"Brando Quin The Journey" opens another chapter in Brando's life that captures the fallen dreams, lost hopes and yearning truths of American life experienced during Brando Quin's remarkable forty five years of travels through America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Mr. Quin's Folk/Rock music is acknowledged by fans and musicians as original, unique and powerfully expressive. His vivid portrayal of an American working/struggling class life, conveys the dashed hopes, loss, and heartbreak implicit in living the American Dream.

"Brando's vocal performances are strong?Something about him reminds me of some kind of Bob Dylan meets Johnny Cash hybrid..." --Those Damn Twins, Seattle Washington

"Brando Quin The Journey" marks the return of Brando's classic form; desperation, honesty, humor, arousing integrity and fragility. The album is a continuation from Brando's debut award winning CD, "Brando Quin My Life" released by Glaxicon Music in 2006 which was nominated for and won the following awards for the week of 5 Feb 2007 at Garageband; Track of the Day in Experimental Rock, Best Drums in Experimental Rock, Best Lyrics in Experimental, Best Beat in Experimental Rock, Best Mood in Experimental Rock, and Most Original in Experimental Rock.

"Brando Quin's songs exemplify his own personal Irish/English American ethics, philosophy and determination which says, "If you get knocked down ten times, you get up eleven." -- Poetry vs. Time

"Distinct and Different...As Brando begins his song you are reminded of Neil Young and Willie Nelson telling a simple but credible tale. The ordinary stuck in life circumstances. You know immediately that the songwriting is original and intelligent. As soon as you get used to his voice, a female voice enters the mix. The suprising duet with contrasting but blended vocals of a male and female duo make his songs distinct and different. Michele Sarrett's voice creates an eery feeling of an individual journey in an uncomfortable situation. She reminds you of Lucinda Williams or the female singer in Cowboy Junkies. People traveling from town to town as ordinary life goes by is real, sad and keeps the listener an interested audience. These songs are an unusual mix and the skilled bass player assists in creating a specific mood."-- CapitolBasement, Seattle WA

He's Just 18 - A sad but true patriotic tribute to the boys of Americas military from WWI-WWII-Korea-Vietnam-Kuwait and Iraq.

The Average -$$$

Moving Forward to Nothing - Suicide among Americans is at its all time highest, and Brando is all too familiar with these depressing feelings one can hopelessly express.

It's All About Me - A parody of playful words written after Brando watched an interview by Tyra Banks the supermodel now talk-show hostess.

A Four-speed Ford, Grandpa and Me (Americana Folk/Rock) - A tribute to Grandfather's who taught their children to drive on dusty trails and back country roads not by sending them to drivers ed classes.

Unresolvable - A lost in America tribute to the homeless and destitute on our streets.

"The Perfect Three Love Rules" - A song about youthful love and exuberance as it follows the meeting of a young man and woman, through dating and then eventually marrying...ooh la la ooh
