Review for Brigitte DeMeyer:

Brigitte DeMeyer is a storyteller. She is the blues personified. Each lyric drips with emotion, curiosity and imagination. 

The acoustic soul artist is now ready to share a new batch of stories--inspired by the inimitable spirit of the South--with the release her new album Savannah Road, out Tuesday, April 29, on indie label BDM Music, with distribution by The Royal Potato Family/RED Distribution. The 13 songs on Savannah Road reel you in after the first note, and then there’s the immediately alluring sound of Brigitte's voice--smooth, soulful and warm. Savannah Road is raw, stripped down and the lyrics read like a novel about life, love, yearning and mystery.

“Savannah Road is probably closest to the sound I've been looking for my whole life,” explains Brigitte of her sixth album. “It came about organically. It wasn’t forced. It is stripped down and spare. You can hear my voice better, and in turn, the lyrics and stories better. It's more intimate. More pure.”
