Grammy Award nomination - Best Musical Theater Album, 2016

"Martin is an accomplished banjo player and the sweetly melodic music he writes with Brickell sounds completely authentic."
- Variety

"The shining achievement of the musical is its winsome country and bluegrass score (by Martin and Brickell) ... the songs, yearning ballads and square dance romps rich with fiddle, piano and banjo, beautifully played by a nine-person band, provide a buoyancy that keeps the momentum from stalling."
- The New York Times

"... aspires to the kind of emotional sweep and folksy wit we associate with Golden Age musicals, from Rodgers and Hammerstein classics to Meredith Willson's The Music Man ... in what may well prove to be the richest Broadway season for new musicals in decades, this gently shining Star holds its own."
- USA Today

Following two collaborations of bluegrass music, Steve Martin and Edie Brickell embarked on an ambitious project to write and bring to life a Broadway musical based on their 2013 Grammy-winning album Love Has Come For You. After an extended run of previews and workshopping, Bright Star opened on Broadway in March 2016 to glowing reviews and sold out houses. This is the original Broadway cast recording.

"Edie and I wanted to create something that would resonate with all kinds of people. A genuine story with strong melodies and real emotion. I’ve been playing the banjo and writing music my entire life and bringing Bright Star to Broadway is tremendously exciting."
- Steve Martin

"The first movie I ever saw in a theatre was The Sound of Music. It was so powerful. I loved that every song was something you could sing, with simple, beautiful melodies. When we started to write our musical, I thought, I would love to write songs that bring such joy to people."
- Edie Brickell

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
