On March 9 Blue Ceiling Records will release The Meantime, the beautiful new CD from Randall Bramblett.

The CD was produced by Bramblett, who performs primarily on acoustic piano, organ, and lead vocals. The CD features 12 original tracks, including some of Bramblett's earliest songs such as "Sacred Harmony," "Witness For Love," and "One More Rose" as well as newer, unreleased compositions. A sultry blend of ambient folk, jazz, traditional piano and seductive vocals, the music on The Meantime is downright romantic and mesmerizing in the vein of Norah Jones or The Blue Nile.
On this recording Bramblett is accompanied by Gerry Hansen on drums and percussion and Chris Enghauser on upright bass. Special guests include Andy Carlson (violin and viola), Cora Kuyvenhoven (cello), Adam McKnight (backing vocals on "Driving to Mongomery"), Betsy Franck (backing vocals on "In the Meantime"), Tom Ryan (baritone sax), and Kevin Hyde (trombone). Strings were written and arranged by renowned producer/composer, Steve Dancz.
Bramblett will tour in support of The Meantime, including a listening party performance at The Rialto Room in Athens, GA, on Saturday, February 13. The show will benefit the University of Georgia Music Business Program.
