Beat Surrender

Bronwynne Brent- Stardust by Simon April 22, 2014 VIEW 

Really enjoying this album from Bronwynne Brent a Mississippi Delta born singer-songwriter who currently splits her time between Greenville, MS and Austin, TX.  Stardust is Bronwynne’s second album (her debut Deep Black Water was released2011) and features a dozen self-penned songs that showcase Bronwynne’s wonderful vocal which walks the line somewhere between an R’n'B chanteuse and Southern Americana belle – wonderfully emotive with detailed phrasing that really brings her words to life and perfectly fits the essence and themes of the songs, of broken hearts, disappointment, loss and betrayal “I don’t set out to write dark love songs…but I do like a minor key!” – it is after all in the sadness where the real beauty lies.

The album is out in the UK now and plans are afoot for a tour of the UK and Ireland later this year and into next, Stardust was produced byJohnny Sangster who also plays electric guitar on the album and Jon Rauhouse (Neko Case, Jon Langford, Old 97′s) also guests on several tracks playing playing dobro, banjo and pedal steel.
