Brigitte DeMeyer: Rose of Jericho

A rootsy, soulful singer-songwriter’s fifth

On her fifth album, singer-songwriter Brigette DeMeyer shows off an impressive range of styles. There’s the rootsy gospel “One Wish,” the road warrior’s country-rock lament “This Fix I’m In,” the trad-jazz “Alright A-Coming,” and the irresistible New Orleans-styled “Say Big Poppa.” Each provides a different angle on DeMeyer’s on a soulful voice whose edges resound with the character of Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow and (if you listened past her megahit singles), Deana Carter. DeMeyer blends just as easily with fingerpicked acoustic guitars as with twangy pedal steel and the fat tone of a muted trombone. She’s supported by Sam Bush (founder of one of DeMeyer’s earliest musical influences, New Grass Revival), Will Kimbrough, Mike Farris and co-produced by drummer Brady Blade.
