Today we start of with a beautiful touch of pure Americana.
For Brigitte DeMeyer, it was only a matter of time. She was already one of the most discussed artists in the Americana movement. Her work stirred accolades in national media.
She was tapped to open shows for Marc Cohn, Dan Fogelberg – and Bob Dylan. She wrote songs as weavers thread tapestries, her most vivid colors being a Southern feel, a churchy soulfulness in her vocals, and a way with words that bore comparison to literature as easily as to the best contemporary lyrics.Brigitte has been favorably compared to Bonnie Raitt, Shelby Lynne and Sheryl Crowe and her most recent album is maybe her most accessible.
So maybe she can achieve some of the fame of aforesaid young ladies.
Check out some of the tunes from that album, Rose of Jericho, and see if you don't agree.
