Review | Tom Brosseau – North Dakota Impressions


Out now via Crossbill Records

Rating: 7.5/10

By Kieran Webber

Tom Brosseau‘s third installment of albums based on his memories is a beaming ray of americana folk that is truly magical. The rustic approach backed by it’s simplistic delivery creates layers of emotive beauty that is spellbound and mesmerising.

Through the album you are subject to an amazing array of imagery of small town America, fields of green as far as the eye can see, dusty boots and harmony. Through ‘North Dakota Impressions’ you are given a pleasent but personal look into the life of Tom Brosseau, particularly within ‘A Trip To Emerado’ a personal account that is more of a reflection than a song.

Through the album Tom tugs and pulls on your heartstrings with his beautiful songwriting and rustic deliverance, whether he is singing about taking the right path, heartbreak or that lust for adventure. This album although released in autumn is perfect for winter days, days where you stare solemnly out your window as you watch the rain fall whilst contemplating life.
