Brandi Adams, local bluesy folk-rock singer-songwriter, is pleased to announce she is releasing her first album Thursday, July 12th. The CD Release parties will be Thursday, July 12th at The Ugly Grouper, 5704 Marina Drive Holmes Beach, from 5pm-8pm and Friday, July 13th at The Freckled Fin, 5337 Gulf Dr #600 Holmes Beach, from 8pm-midnight. She will be accompanied by Trevor Bystrom, Kristie Armas, and James Hershey.
Originally from Ohio, Brandi sang in church growing up, and sang every word to classic country and Creedence Clearwater Revival in the back seat of her grandma’s car. In her twenties she spent some time studying in Gulf Shores, Alabama learning everything she could from musicians in that area. She has been a local for 5 years, during which time she sang with The Venturas, Russ Adams, and Dan Ryan of Memphis Rub.
Brandi’s motivation and drive became unstoppable with the birth of her son Gavin. She would be awakened at night with the song ideas in her head. Her songs have many colors. From a piano power ballad, a backyard country sing along, and a lullaby, to a rock anthem with rhythmic call backs, there is something for everyone.
The title track of the record, beYOUtiful Life, is an anthem and a call to rise up in gratitude in the midst of life’s storms. The stories on this debut album take you on a journey of perseverance and ensuing passion in the heart.
Brandi shares the beYOutiful Life message through her boutique-like graphic shirts and other merchandise. The beYOUtiful Life logo is penned by her stepmom, Celia Messer, freelance artist in Columbus. Ohio.
