Gaz Brookfield – Be The Bigger Man

Frank Turner only keeps the very best musical company and recent support act, Gaz Brookfield, is no exception.

Swimming in folk charm before docking on ports of punk disarray, Gaz Brookfield is a refreshing attack on the senses. Be The Bigger Man is an excellent example of this brilliance. Dangerous lyrical content is tackled with delicacy and finesse, then balanced atop fluid, acoustic hollers.

Folk music really works when its foundations are based on storytelling and Gaz Brookfield is a master craftsman of this art. Inviting and mesmeric, this west-country artist knows when to carefully thread a plot point or twist a conclusion. Subdued and building before a vocal outpouring of anger, he walks a fine line between angst and beauty, a line he toes with absolute discipline.

Be The Bigger Man can be found on Gaz Brookfield’s fantastic second album, Tell It To The Beer.
