IV Edition [edit]
by Braille | Genre: Rap/Urban | Release Date: April 15, 2008

April 15th (TAX DAY) 2008 marks the official release date of Braille's forth solo album "The IV Edition". Although Braille has remained independent through most of his career, he embraced the opportunity to partner with Syntax/Koch for this landmark record. "The IV" (pronounce I-VEE) represents the roman numeral four (forth album), as well as a slew of other acronyms and metaphors used to describe the vision behind the music. The record plays like a celebration soundtrack touching on a wide variety of topics including marriage, death, temptation, and growth. Within the "celebration" theme Braille pairs himself up with a different producer for each track. The cast includes friends, artists Braille has been a fan of and even some international artists that he met during his travels. Some notables on that list include OhNo (Stones Throw), Marco Polo (Rawkus), Rob Swift, Speech (Arrested Development), DJ Spinna, Kno (CunninLynguists), S1 (Strange Fruit Project), Ohmega Watts (Ubiquity) and J-Zone.

THE CURE FOR COMMON ILLS | Posted September 29, 2008
Continuing a 13-year career, music mogul Bryan Winchester (aka Braille) hits the pavement again for his fourth solo release. The IV Edition speaks to societal issues and the needs that each of us face in life, while keeping with Braille’s personal and honest approach to songwriting.

The title track offers a call to action for listeners, stating that we can each be an “IV” that delivers the remedy for social ills. Later, “The Cure” explains that the remedy goes beyond the basic needs of life in the physical sense, but extends into our spiritual lives and our need for grace, forgiveness and redemption that can only come from Christ. Braille also includes personal verses about his recently passed father and the importance of family.

Musically, Braille mixes things up nicely, pulling from beatsmiths such as Marco Polo, The Are and fellow Lightheaded crew member, Ohmega Watts, among others, as well as including guest verses from the likes of Mr J (The Procussions), Speech (Arrested Development), Theory Hazit (Scribbling Idiots) and others. The result is a sound that appeals to fans of all varieties of hip-hop music and lyrical content that reaches listeners from every walk of life. –Brenten Gilbert
