‘I grabbed Dad’s hair clippers to take control of my alopecia’

Nell Bryden spoke so bravely about her hair loss for the first time over the weekend in the Daily Mail:

Positive face: Nell sees her condition as a ‘wake-up call’ for life

Excerpt: Sitting in front of the mirror in my New York apartment, I saw a reflection I hardly recognised. I looked sick. My hair was so thin, large patches of my scalp showed through. My eyebrows and eyelashes were practically gone, too. This wasn’t me, I thought. It felt like a nightmare. But it wasn’t.

Until this moment, I had never realised how much my hair had been intertwined with my identity.

I picked up the clippers I had borrowed from my father and I raised them to my head. At the moment the buzzing metal hit my skin, a giant clap of thunder rang out. Rain began to fall outside as what was left of my hair fell to the floor.

Just three weeks earlier, I had bouncy blonde locks that I could gather into a ponytail or curl into ringlets. I half-heartedly complained about bad hair days but I never really had any. Sure, I had my little insecurities, like most women, about my thighs and my nose, but my hair had never been one of them.

I was confident, healthy and feminine, and I assumed that I would always stay that way. If you had told me when I was younger that I’d be completely bald by the age of 33, I’d have laughed.

“Nell Bryden is WOW” – Ian Dempsey- TODAY FM

May 25th sees the return of Brooklyn beauty Nell Bryden and the release of her new double A single ‘Buildings And Treetops’/‘If I Forget’ taken from her eagerly awaited second album ‘Shake The Tree’ through a new deal with ADA/Warner Music (June15th).

If I Forget is reminiscent of her Irish hit Second Time Around, with its alluring vocal sassiness (which has become somewhat of a trademark for the New York songstress), it’s catchy chorus and driving rhythmic groove which draws the listener in immediately. Buildings And Treetops is an upbeat and powerful track penned with Nell’s hometown New York in mind. Combining her modern rootsy and acoustic sound, with chocolate box piano keys behind her trademark Gibson guitar, the track features an uplifting and soaring chorus showcasing Nell’s powerful signature vocals at their best.

Nell is currently supporting the legendary Chris Rea on his UK tour, and also has gained the support slot for the forthcoming Duane Eddy tour! Following the release of her debut album ‘What Does It Take’, Nell received National acclaim in Ireland and appeared on Hit TV Show The Late Late Show, not to mention becoming a regular feature on Today FM & Rte Radio1 (+ many other radio stations around the country) for her successful track Second Time Around. Overseas the album remarkably saw six tracks make it on to the Uk’s BBC Radio 2 Playlist!

Constantly going from strength to strength, Nell has performed as special guest on tour with the likes of KT Tunstall, The Counting Crows and with well-known Irish acts-Damien Dempsey, Cathy Davey, MUNDY, Mick Flannery, DUKE SPECIAL & Declan O’Rourke, along with being invited to perform for ESQUIRE MAGAZINE alongside The STEREOPHONICS & STARSAILOR. Nell later secured slots at many high profile events such as BBC Proms In The Park, Guilfest, BBC Maida Vale celebrations and Camp Bestival.

The American songbird has the urban lifestyle in her blood, the country/folk spirit of Americana in her soul, and the great American songbook in her sights.
