Brigitte DeMeyer Gets Religion, Hallelujah!

by Steve Horowitz

6 July 2011

 

Singer songwriter Brigitte DeMeyer moved to Nashville from the Bay Area last year. Her new material (her next album Rose of Jericho is due to drop at the end of August) shows the notable influence the Tennessee blues and Southern gospel have had on her. This is especially notable on the rollicking “Amen Said the Deacon” whose snaky chugga chugga rhythms make you want to jump up and testify. When DeMeyer sings about Adam and Eve and getting to heaven, you are ready to take a bite of the apple and learn more. The grit in her voice works to wear down the listener’s resistance and give in to the truth of the song. “Maybe all that churchin’” doesn’t mean a thing, but the Lord can be found in mysterious ways. Let us pray in song, sister!
