Now onto my favourite Lady of all time..NELL BRYDEN> 


With 350+ shows in the last two years- including four tours of the UK, Ireland, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and Germany – this exciting modern-Dixie singer has “racked up quite the impressive following,” according to Time Out New York. She even made it to the front cover of the entertainment section of THE SUN newspaper in July. Nell Bryden has shared the stage with International acts like KT Tunstall & The Counting Crows, performed on the number one radio show RTE Radio 1 in Ireland with Pat Kenny and Today FM’s Ian Dempsey and has received glowing reviews from BBC Radio Presenters in the UK.  Her residency gigs at Whelan’s (Dublin) in August 2008 ENDED WITH STANDING OVATIONS BOTH NIGHTS IN A ROW!!! That’s how impressed they were! Q Magazine, UNCUT and WORD Magazine have given this lady much adoration and it’s no wonder.

Of late Nell has been in recording with world known producer David Kershenbaum (Tori Amos, Tracy Chapman, Duran Duran, Joan Baez) with releases set for early 2009. The likes of Social & Personal, Choice Magazine, UNCUT, Q and WORD magazine are raving about this lady. With a trip to Ireland & the UK this month and then onto IRAQ & KUWAIT in OCT to perform a list of live shows for the soldiers, it’s quite clear that Nell Bryden will travel to all crevices of the world to entertain. It’s what she was born to do after all…From the age of 4 she took up the piano and by the age of 9 she was a cellist. With a classical singer for a Mother and an impressionist painter for a Father- “Quite a unique offspring was bound to form”.  

Her album, “Second Time Around” is currently getting radio play across the US, Canada (on 84 stations including channels on XM Satellite radio) the UK and Ireland. Returning for some solo shows in Sept she will also be doing a National Radio Tour in Ireland from the 24th to the 30th of Sept.( Including sessions with Today FM, BBC Radio Ulster,  Clare FM, KCLRFM, VIBE, WLRFM and many more.

The release has been climbing the major industry trade charts for the Americana and AAA formats. “Second Time Around” is distributed by iTunes & CD Baby and is being licensed by MTV for their programming. “Second time around” is the leading single OUT NOW. Without further ado, we bring you New York City’s most exciting export Nell Bryden. …
