ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
\"Helping people understand the things they can\'t see\". Braille has used that one sentence to explain the meaning behind his name for the last 7 years. Before going by Braille, he went by many other random names that never stuck, and before that he was just Bryan Winchester - born and raised in Portland, OR. At age 13 he started making bedroom tapes, and from that moment he never turned back. The poetic nature of his lyrics and concepts intrigued listeners from the beginning. It was Braille\'s faith in Christ (discovered through hiphop) that inspired the directions he took in content. In his music he often expresses things of either a \"spiritual\", \"emotional\" or \"personal\" nature. Visual lyrics that paint pictures of the unseen has become a trademark stamp of Braille\'s style. Another trademark is his passionate and un-structured delivery. These characteristics have almost placed Braille in a category of his own. Not sounding like other artists, but just standing alone as himself. Nothing more, nothing less.

So far in Braille\'s young and extensive career he has already accomplished a lot. In 2004 he was named \"lyricist of the year\" by Sphere of Hiphop and his album \"Shades of Grey\" was crowned \"album of the year\". In 2005 he was named \"one of the next 100\" Artist\'s to watch by URB Magazine. His single \"Hip Hop Music\" went to #2 in 12\" single sales in Japan and #9 @MP3.com for his album \"Shades Of Grey\". This year he also opened concerts for James Brown on several occasions, including performances at the B.B. King Blues Club in Time Square New York and at the Benidorm Futbol Stadium in Spain, with a crowd of 16,000 in attendance. His 2005 tour schedule also placed him in front of crowds in Japan, Germany, the Netherlands and all over the U.S. including the Vans Warped Tour.

Beyond being an artist, Braille also runs his own label called \"Hiphop Is Music\". In 2004 he released his Sophomore solo album \"Shades of Grey\". The record included contributions from artists such as 9th Wonder (who has also produced for Jay-Z), Rob Swift (former member of the X-ecutioners), Supastition, Pigeon John, Manchild (of Mars Ill), Illmind, Kno (from Cunnin Lynguists) and the list goes on. In the future, Braille hopes to use the Hiphop Is Music label as a platform for himself and other artists to shine and share God\'s love to a universal audience. Braille is determined to continue growth regardless of circumstances - destined for longevity in a competitive industry that often forgets about the integrity of the music and the effect it has on the people who buy it.

Peace and GOD bless

Nothing Short But A Well Put Together Album
Shades of grey is nothing short but a well put together album and it wouldn't be a surprise if it remains in regular rotation in your audio system.The elements are there that make up an above average hip-hop record such as lyrics that has spiritual substance with honesty being on point minus the profanity yet still reflecting a commonality that backpackers and everyday hip-hop purists could identify.Production is solid with diversity soundwise but still keeping it hip-hop to the core.This is nice one to include in the collection.Go cop it!

shades of grey
i'm someone who has rediscovered their love for hip hop and the power of Word...i really dig braille's style and message, his reality, and his grit...he speaks of God, but doesn't make it flowery, because true Life isn't like that...i dig it a lot...great supporting artists as well as beats!

original, different in a good way
The songs are all very concious about things that are going on in the world. This is smart rap, it isn't all about the guns and how big are the rims on his car. This hip-hop has spirit, it's as if he has really grown and wrote these songs about his new found wisdom.
