This is recording number six on a continuing journey that has seen Brigitte DeMeyer develop a growing reputation as a performing artist both across America and Europe. She displays a wonderfully natural feel for soul-steeped, blues-infused roots music and on this release has been delving deeper into southern musical territory.
DeMeyer has a strong partnership with guitarist/songwriter Will Kimbrough, with whom she has toured and collaborated since 2010. The songs she has been writing, primarily with Kimbrough are a rich blend of fingerpicking, blues inflection and acoustic soul. The songs stem from DeMeyer and Kimbrough’s musical chemistry, and are brought further to life with her sultry vocal delivery that reminds me of a Bonnie Raitt/Mavis Staples groove, combined with Kimbrough’s strong playing. Soulful, sweet and with more than a little honey on the side.
