Death of the Toy Soldier
-RUMBLEFISH MEDIA PRESS RELEASE: With a deep, resonant voice like Eddie Vedder's and an intimate songwriting style like Elliott Smith's, Carrboro, North Carolina's Brendan Rice bridges the gap between singer/songwriter territory and that of rock and roll. The dusty tracks on Death Of A Toy Soldier have the storytelling specificity of Bruce Springsteen's acoustic folk, but the roots-rock edge of a band like Creedence Clearwater Revival. With blistering guitar solos that express the songwriter's anxiety or anger and acoustic tracks that ache with romantic regret, Rice has created an intelligent, evocative collection to perfectly score any scene of masculine vulnerability. -SONGS OFF 'DEATH OF THE TOY SOLDIER' LICENSED BY MTV.
