When I was younger I would make as many mix tapes as I could for my travels. Often I would give one to a friend upon request or because they had to hear a song I was in love with. The best ones used to be when I could synch the DJ to announce the song before it started as I placed a recording apparatus next to the radio. Those days are long gone and I wanted to create a B-sides album that had a mix tape feel.

A Tall Tale on Johnson Road is the second studio album by singer/songwriter Brett Fuentes. In his last album, Systematic Chaos, Brett captured the alternative rock music he had grown up listening to from his teen years. In A Tall Tale on Johnson Road he has turned to those influences of Blues and Classic Rock that have always been endeared. This concept album ventures into a story of Johnson Road and the drifters there. It delves into faith and whatever is to come beyond death. Brett Fuentes can be heard and downloaded from various websites including I-Tunes but by purchasing this CD you delve into an experience containing lyrics and artwork that influence the music.

Systematic Chaos is Brett’s first studio recorded solo album. He began working near the end of 2005. Engineered by Grammy Award winner, John Seymour, the result is an elegant clash of musicianship and the true art of recording. Trying to find oneself regardless of the systematic propaganda perpetuated by the powers that be. There is a consistent idea of unlearning yourself from Religion, Education, Government, Society and Family, to establish a core identity. Systematic Chaos is a rare and truthful glimpse of what we all experience within the highs and lows of life but somehow and without waver, find peace with oneself and the world surrounding. It is truly an album for your collection.

Freedom EP was an idea Brett had for a very long time wanting to always record Richie Havens eponymous song. There is also an acoustic live version of Doublespeak calling back to his original EP release for Systematic Chaos. Brett Fuentes has said that Freedom represents his movement away from his music towards a new direction. Enjoy.
