Born in Upstate NY in a small town called Potsdam in what many refer to as the North Country, singer-songwriter Angie Bruyere spent her childhood running through the backwoods and roaming the train tracks, living the simple life that inspires imaginations of which lyrics and melodies are made. Settling in Southern California at a young age, Bruyere began a modeling career that took her on a journey around the world...experiences that can be felt throughout many of her songs. Pen and paper always in hand, she began writing poetry and playing her guitar, lending itself naturally to combining her two passions into what has become a body of musical work that she continues grow daily.
Drawing much of her inspiration and influence from such bands as Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty and The Rolling Stones, it wasn't until she discovered her deep love for artists such as Gram Parsons and Willie Nelson that her country, Americana rock style was born. Her unique sound and soul sets her apart from many other artists of her kind as her mesmerizing vocals full of rasp and roughness make her a force to be reckoned with, revealing the authenticity and edge of her Americana / outlaw country ways.
In 2014 Angie released West of The Night featuring singles such as "Mason Jar" and "Goodbyes." Soon after the album's release, Fender highlighted her as Artist of The Month and brought her in to re record both singles in their Fender Sessions Live Jams. "Bruyere's sultry voice stood out, as she possesses a distinctive purr that is both sweet and dangerous at the same time".
Armed with her brand new single entitled "Country Radio", the upbeat track showcases her Americana/Outlaw roots and is the first single off of her forthcoming EP, Blood Like Wine, produced by Jeff Hutchins ( Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Clint Black, Shania Twain). It is a song of lust and longing, an affair of the soul, if you will. Written about a love affair between a girl and a country singer that she's only heard on the radio, it leaves the listener feeling that there may be a bit more truth to this story than perhaps Bruyere would like us to know...perhaps there was a meeting, indeed. And perhaps we know his music well...
Angie's upcoming Blood Like Wine EP was recorded at the legendary Castle Recording Studios in Nashville, TN.
Angie has toured extensively throughout Europe and the US, and has enjoyed performing in many of her hometown's premier venues such as The Troubadour, Pappy and Harriet’s, The Whiskey A Go Go, The Roxy, The Mint, and many more. She's looking forward to coming to a town soon near you in support of her Blood Like Wine release. Thank for listening...hope you enjoy the ride.
