ABOUT THE HOST
Brandi is a singer/songwriter whose authentic country roots are intertwined with rock and the blues. She is a natural born performer who comes from a musical Metis family. Brandi is a force to be reckoned with. her rebel spirit is evident on stage and in her music. Her biggest inspirations include Johnny Cash, the Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin and Miranda Lambert.
Brandi is currently on the Indigenous Music Countdown. She is playing live, looking forward to the September 20, 2019 release of her first single, Walk Away. Walk Away will be available on iTunes, Spotify and YouTube on September 20. Be sure to tune into to the Indigenous Music Countdown Saturdays and Sundays at 2 pm on NCI FM.
Brandi recently has been selected as an emerging artist by the Manitoba Arts Network in a series of Concerts in Care for Manitoba Seniors. And, she will be hosting Manitoba Music’s Open Mic Night in December.
Brandi was selected by Indigenous Music, Manitoba Music and the Manitoba Arts Showcase as an Emerging Artist in 2018. Attending the Manitoba Arts Showcase inspired Brandi to write her own music and the confidence to play guitar live. After attending the showcase, Brandi contacted established and internationally recognized Canadian producer, Murray Pulver. Murray’s style of producing matches Brandi’s song writing and personality.
Brandi hopes her first single, Walk Away, encourages people to leave relationships, workplaces and situations that are toxic. She has used her personal experience to write music that is meaningful and helpful to those who need the message of self perseverance.
Her follow up single produced by Pulver is about the types of relationships Brandi had once been in. She no longer is attracted to bad boys and her next single signifies just that. She is currently creating YouTube videos as an author, blogger and singer/songwriter. Brandi blends her writing, singing and speaking into one and all three reach out to her audience and fans.
This spring she played Manitoba Music’s New Night at the Goodwill along with lead guitar player, Jesse Bandura and bass player, Vaughan Poyser. Brandi played the Sakihiwe Festival here in Manitoba and was featured live at the APTN Indigenous Live at the Forks in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
