At the age of 21, Severin Browne (brother of Jackson Browne) became the first white folk singer/songwriter on Motown’s blooming white roster. After releasing two Motown LPs in the ‘70s, Browne abandoned record making for 20 years. Back in action, his latest album, “This Twisted Road,” is a reflective collection. The finger-picking lullaby “Do You Think I’ll Go to Heaven” reminds listeners of their ambivalent acceptance into the afterlife but balances the unsettling mortality question with a soft and gentle sway. “I’ve lived a simple life but I got no education, and I never took a wife. I watched a lot of TV and I drank a lot of beer. Do you think I’ll go to heaven when I’m done with all my years?” Browne sings. The Los Angeles musician performs as part of Kiki’s Acoustic Concert series. [ZS]
