The Blonde bombshell that invaded our Radio & Tv boxes last year is back with New single TONIGHT (FRYDL425) – 19th April
It is currently on the Radio1 playlist on RTE and BBC Radio2.
Taken from album WHAT DOES IT TAKE? (COOKCD508) – out now!
Nell Bryden, has announced she will be releasing a new digital download single, Tonight (Ash Howes Radio Mix), on Monday 19th April. Her last single, Not Like Loving You, spent an incredible six weeks on the BBC Radio 2 A List, and was described by the Daily Mirror (****) as “a big bold production – keening pedal steels, bright edgy horns and a massed choir – push the incomparable thrill of the title to the fore. Swell” . The original version of Tonight can be found on Bryden’s recently released album What Does It Take?
Critics praised Nell, saying “ Her vocal versatility is supported by consummate songwriting skills … Think of a female Nick Lowe with a better voice” (Uncut) and “An eclectic collection, it takes in country blues, Dixieland Jazz and her warm, rich voice even shows a touch of the Roberta Flacks” (Q).
Bryden is fast becoming one of the most talked about and sought after new artists, building the buzz the old-fashioned way with word-of-mouth endorsements of her live shows. With four international tours (and 500 shows) in the last 18 months under her belt, including tours with KT Tunstall, and The Counting Crows, and a self-released debut single, What Does It Take, spending 7 weeks on the BBC R2 A-list (Second Time Around spent over 2 months on the RTE Radio1 playlist and was Song of the Week on Today FM)- she is definitely one to watch. Bryden also appeared on RTE TV’s the Late Late show on her first single release of Second Time Around.
Following a chance meeting with a US Army colonel at South By South West, Bryden set aside her political preconceptions to entertain the troops in Iraq – not once, but twice –in 2009, and became, in the process, a Forces Sweetheart. Award winning documentary maker Susan Cohn Rockefeller, of the Rockefeller dynasty in the USA, commissioned a team of filmmakers to go with Bryden on her second visit. Entitled Striking A Chord, the documentary provides an insight into how the troops are coping and how they feel at home when music is played, amongst other things. It is due to be released later this year. you can view the trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K54koz429zk&feature=related
