Brindl @ Novato HopMonk Open Mic 5/29/13

The campaign is making good progress !!! … A BIG thanks to all the people who have generously supported the project so far!  I’ve been having fun running around to gigs and open mics talking to folks about the project and feeling engaged and inspired. I got to stop in at the HopMonk Novato Wednesday night hosted by the wonderful Dennis Heneda. There was a steady stream of sets by some amazing musicians…and I got to play 2 new songs that will be on the upcoming album (“Love It Up” and “Space & Time”) to an energetic crowd hooting and hollering along in encouragement. If you want to contribute to the project there is still time!

After many months of work, I am proud to announce my album pre-order/fundraiser campaign is live on Indiegogo!  I am excited to reach out to you — my beloved tribe —  to share my enthusiasm and vision for this upcoming album project.

This summer I will be recording ten brand new original songs on guitar, baritone ukulele, piano and B-tar (custom made 4-stringed instrument) written over the last two years. I will be collaborating with engineer/ bassist Ben Bernstein (Courtney Janes, JL Stiles) at The Petting Zoo in Oakland, CA and a team of awesome local musicians to help me bring these new songs to life! Musicians include Ben Hulan (Courtney Janes) on mandolin, Mike Stevens (Red House Painters, Cyndi Harvell) on drums, Max Delaney (Elliot Randall, Jeff Campell) on guitar, Sharon Drake on violin (El Radio Fantastique), and more! The album will be released Sept. 2013!

I will be posting videos of the new songs as we go along, as well as periodic updates on the campaign! I will also be playing a series of shows during this time, I would love to see you out!

The Lost Church 4/18/13 Photos

photoA very special night at The Lost Church with JL Stiles and Jim Bruno. This venue is small and intimate, tucked away on a quiet side street in San Francisco, and hard to believe only a block away from the busy 16th and Mission BART station. These nights feed my very soul: a thoughtful, listening audience and getting to hear songwriters who I would have gladly paid to come see.  JL Stiles had an acoustic trio rocking three part harmonies and Jim Bruno played his lyrically lovely originals. (And thanks to Brett Cline for MC-ing and creating such a great space for music and performance.)

Review of Hotel Utah Show (2/21/13)

Brindl @ Hotel Utah

Excerpt from review of Hotel Utah show on 2/21/13 by Millard Fabbro

“…Brindl went on. As a last-minute quick sound check, she strummed a couple of chords and moaned into the microphone. No “TESTING 1-2-3,” uh-uh, nope, she moaned–a lingering sort of “oh-ohhh-oh-ohh.” Not a consciously sexy sort of moan, mind you, but simply a fragment of one of her songs (I guess). Wow. She did it twice. Then she sang and played a song–solo, on acoustic guitar. Brindl’s music doesn’t just affect your ears. It ENWRAPS you. That hard bench you’re sitting on starts to feel like a chaise lounge. Saturated by a soothing female voice from which all concussive consonants seem to have been removed, the air becomes vaguely amniotic. Addressed to a man, the words of the song assured him that love was coming his way. (Brindl is not shy about writing songs about intimate relationships, but she does not specialize in heartache; her songs are life-affirming, love-affirming.) Read more →

Stay Classy San Diego

lestatsSo-Cal heat wave.  Lestat’s is a neat venue: a small room with old theater seats and a marquee with red and black letters.  I play all the new songs I have been saving for a real listening room. It feels like exhaling a deep breath.

I play the two new ones I have written on a guitar my friend Simon helped me make. We call it the “B-tar”, it’s 4 strings, tuned to some kind of open B flat tuning right now.)  My beloved nephew who is a college student at UCSD is in the audience. I’ve known him since the day he was born. He has just lost his father to a long fight with cancer, strangely enough we both lost our fathers at the age of 24.  I play an early song written about this particular kind of loss.  I am not sure if it is the heat, the tension in the room, the events of the week, but I feel over whelmed and almost dizzy with the energy, like I may swoon.

Touring forces music out of it’s comfort zone. It tests it’s strength.  “There is no such thing beneath the heavens as conditions favorable to art. Art must crash through or perish.” (Sylvia Ashton-Warner) Even in the face of extreme weather, emotional distress, poverty, sleep deprivation, lack of food, a broken heart or tired soul — music prevails. In an instant on stage my feet grow roots, my head is a crown of light from the sky, and the moment envelops me — shot back into my body and out of body all at the same time. I have a sense of the organism that I am; shuttering like a host body to this mystical and delightful process.  I do the drive home alone, pushing my little rental to the limit up the 5. San Diego to Marin, 10 hours, 3 bathroom breaks, Led Zeppelin turned up to 11.
