Brian is guest for release concert at Söder Teatern performing select songs together live for titled album; 
Out Of The Bell Jar (Ladybird Music).
“Out of the Bell Jar comes from Sweden, with a deliciously deft vocal vibe, Dylanesque lyricism and truly inspired, understated fretwork supplied by the singer Isabella Lundgren ably assisted by US-Swedish bluesman, Brian Kramer (lyrics by Isabella/music by Kramer).  With a delightful, sparkling guitar lead and backing throughout, Lundgren not only crosses musical boundaries and divides but confronts and collides with them head-on, with shades of blues, soul and Americana all rippling along at every twist and turn. A delightful bit of work worth discovering for lovers of good, old-fashioned songwriting, harmonic, melodic beauty and searching soul.”
