Bronwynne Brent

Three hundred different acts showcased at the 2014 Folk Alliance International event in Kansas City where the standard of musicianship and creativity on display was quite overwhelming.

Soon, delegates and fellow musicians could be found in huddled groups talking enthusiastically about Bronwynne Brent as someone who stood out above the crowd due to the standard of her superlative song-writing and the hugely appealing quality of her voice.

Born and raised in the Mississippi Delta she possesses a from-the-very-soles-of-her-feet earthiness that is irresistible and draws you in.

Long before that big industry gathering, the grapevine had begun to tingle following ‘live’ appearances around the country, and after she released her stunning debut album, Deep Black Water, in 2011.

Leading US music critic Jordan Richardson called it "an exquisite record of soul-spilling radiance," while No Depression spoke about it being something to treasure.

Those Folk Alliance delegates had gravitated her way as if there was some magical magnetic pull that set them all on the same (right) path.

In recent times, Bronwynne was been building a faithful following on this side of the Atlantic too, championed by “Whispering” Bob Harris who invited her in for a BBC Radio 2 studio session after repeatedly featuring tracks over many months.

He says: “I absolutely love her music!”

In 2015 AND 2016, Bronwynne ended each year voted Best Female Performer in the annual Readers’ Poll at the hugely influential AmericanaUK website.

On the back of a sold-out show at Celtic Connections Festival, she found herself performing to capacity crowds at some of the best venues in the UK and selling out her show at the Top Secret Blues Festival.

At the start of 2017, she was invited by Roddy Hart to join him for his Quay Sessions event at BBC Radio Scotland. Two thousand hopefuls applied for a ticket to be in the audience in the pre-show ballot.

Many reviewers have expressed the view that the true-grit determination in her writing and delivery brings Billie Holiday to mind.
