Who's rock, americana and pop all over? Brandy Lindsey

Biography

In her debut album, Who Am I This Time, Brandy Lindsey delves into that question musically and what emerges is a grab-bag of multi-faceted songs. Her music is undoubtedly catchy, emotional and accessible, but upon listening further, the sultry tones of her voice smooths over and camouflage sometimes dark and ironic lyrics. Conversely, other songs on the album hook you in with groovy melodies that are definitely danceable. The singer/songwriter from South Carolina admits her songs are reflective of her emotions and experiences, but she quickly points out that what starts out one way, doesn't necessarily end in the same vein. Similarly, her songs change gears easily from silky ballads to upbeat melodies with hooky choruses. Lindsey centers her music around her observations on relationships, family and the human condition, and as a result, the lyrics become wry character sketches about her. Stylistically, her sound is a mix of the Pretenders and Gwen Stefani with a little Lucinda Williams thrown in. Blending acoustic textures with a beautiful voice that runs from slightly cool to dripping with emotion, she strikes a chord that resonates. Utterly charming, and just a little bit back porch, Lindsey's music is evocative, unforced and makes a connection with listeners.

Lyrics

Somebody to Love

Written By: Brandy Lindsey

I’ve a simple request,
I don’t ask for much.
You say surely you jest,
Well I’m quite serious.

Just give me someone to love.
There’s no need to make a fuss.
Just somebody’s whose sweet touch,
Will fill me up.
Somebody to love.

I’ve a favor to ask,
I know that you’re the one.
It’s the smallest of tasks,
I don’t want to put you under the gun.

Just give me someone to love.
There’s no need to make a fuss.
Just somebody’s whose sweet touch,
Will fill me up.
Somebody to love.

All the Boys

Written By: Brandy Lindsey

Sending you a little note,
But you don’t want to read it.
And out of all the boys,
I thought I’d get your vote,
But you don’t want to read it.

I’m writing you a little song,
But you don’t want to sing it.
And out of all the boys,
I thought you’d be the one,
But you don’t want to sing it.

But baby, I’m still trying,
Baby, I’m still trying. (repeat)

I’m building you a little house,
But you don’t want to visit.
And out of all the boys, you think I figured out,
That you don’t want to visit.

I’m living in your little world,
But you don’t want to stay here.
And out of all the boys,
I thought I’d be your girl,
But you don’t want to stay here.

But baby, I’m still trying,
Baby, I’m still trying now. (repeat)

Sending you a little note,
But you don’t want to read it.
And out of all the boys, I thought I’d get your vote,
But you don’t want to read it.

I’m writing you a little song,
But you don’t want to listen.
And out of all the boys, I thought you’d be the one,
But you will never be it.

Pin It on Me

Written By: Brandy Lindsey

Snow white said,
I’m tired of the kissin’,
I don’t need the help,
And I’m sick of all the whistlin’.
Everybody’s tryin’ to pin it on me.

Cinderella said,
I don’t even care if,
The shoe still fits,
That doesn’t mean I gotta wear it.
Everybody’s tryin’ to pin it on me.

Who said I needed a prince,
A fairy tale romance?
Who said I needed a king,
Much less a diamond ring?

Repunzel said,
I’ll let my hair down,
When I’m good and ready,
(It) doesn’t mean I want you hangin’ around.
Everybody’s tryin’ to pin it on me.

Who said I needed a prince,
A fairy tale romance?
Who said I needed a king,
Much less a diamond ring?

Happily ever after,
Never mentioned the master,
Don’t sign up for the disaster,
Just run.

Who said I needed a prince,
a fairy tale romance?
Who said I needed a king,
Who said I needed anything?
