Kenton Hall is as empathetic as they come. And it reflects in his compositions. Hall is a Canadian author, musician, actor, and former front person of UK band ist. He first branched out as a solo artist in 2020 and debuted with Careful How You Go. Dumb as A Brick features in the Idiopath album published under the name, Kenton Hall & Necessary Measures. The artist’s music is, the most part, autobiographical, making it the perfect therapeutic vehicle. Blending folk and classical styles, his music is affecting in its delivery and beautiful in its relatability. 

The release of the Idiopath album is paired with that of Omniopath album, both a triple album of 36 songs each. While the former is performed by him, the latter is the reinterpretation of the former by other artists. Together, they form a swirling whirlpool of soul acoustics that you just can’t get enough of. 

Dumb As A Brick glints beautifully with acoustic guitar melodies. With the vocal expression tied to the mourning cello underpinnings, the song emulates the melancholic disposition of the heart-broken. We see pops of mirthful melodies that carry over the valleys of ponderous vocals. The artist uses myriad textures to dimensionalize the complex subject of heartache. And with its cinematic style, it is truly a spectacle. Don’t forget to check out the rest of this mesmerizing album! 

The track is available on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
