North East Rising Sun marks Brooksie Wells' return to her folk roots - a carefully chosen collection of well-crafted songs with complex harmonies and insightful lyrics.

Brooksie's fingerpicking style sets the tone on North East Rising Sun for a plainspoken road trip full of sharp turns and long looks in the rear view mirror. A small band of excellent players, including GRAMMY-Nominated Frank Solivan, accompany her on the ride providing support, rhythm and comfort.

Brooksie's first stop on the record is North East Rising Sun, the title track - mandolin leads and lush harmonies take us on a memorable drive down a very well-travelled east coast highway. "Where do I belong?" is the central question of the song. In Silver Spoon, money and privilege do not lead to happiness and this simple guitar and vocal are reminiscent of old folk records from the 60's and 70's.

Shame Houses and Can't Fix Crazy are bluesy, guitar-driven outpourings of lost love. A Mardi Gras horn adds flavor and color to the duet No Notion. Brooksie's only cover is a quiet rendition of Rodney Crowell's Shame on the Moon which sounds so new when sung by a woman.

North East Rising Sun is produced by Brooksie Wells, co-produced and engineered by Billy Gewin, mixed and mastered by Gary Gordon, and is graced by outstanding musicians including GRAMMY-Nominated Frank Solivan on mandolin and fiddle and Brooksie's only son, John Bridstrup, on drums and percussion.
