"Bridget a'Beckett"

“The best debut artist I’ve
heard in a long time.”
- Phil Anquetil Producer, BNA Productions,

"Bridget a'Beckett"

Crystal Voiced, optimistic of heart and looking like she just breezed in from a photo shoot, Bridget a'Beckett is every bit the precociously graceful songbird. Melding ivory-stomping melodies with her warm and expressive voice, the Australian reaches tremendously poignant moments from relatively simple arrangements. - The Sydney Morning Hearld

"Bridget a'Beckett EP"

The silky voice of this girl from Tumbarumba is as lush as her single's
production. Her songwriting has a certainty and sophistication that
belies her bacdkground: there's no country in this articulate selection
of classic piano based singer/songrwriter indie pop. A'Beckett is a
natural storyteller and she delivers those stories with an ease and
delicacy without ever slipping into the colloquial style of Missy
Higgins or the saccharine of Delta Goodrum, both of whom to which she
has been compared (although she shares a producer with the latter.)
Three's a subtle earthiness that grounds it all and makes this EP a
real treat to the ears.

Feeling a bit camera shy


“Few experiences are unique to one person, even though at times it feels that way. These are the moments that I write about in my songs. For me it is like confiding in a friend.”

In 2006 Bridget a’Beckett will release her debut album. Bridget wanted to write an album that you could sing along to, that suited every mood and took you on a journey as you listened to it. What she has achieved is a collection of songs that can be at times achingly evocative in their subtlety, and at other times incredibly powerful and moving.

Bridget’s mother taught her to play the piano at the age of five, she was playing in smoky bars at 10, and began writing her own music by 15. The songs on the album were written at different stages of life through boarding school, first love, yearning to travel, her friends, her obsession with cafes and more.

As a pop singer songwriter Bridget’s songs have relevance to a wide audience who will find in Bridget’s lyrics a sentiment and understanding that is beyond her years.

Live, she has the rare ability to bring a noisy, crowded room to complete silence. Performing in front of an audience is what she loves to do most. “When I am on stage singing my songs I feel a real connection with the people in the room, to me that is what songwriting is all about”.

Her musical influences are wide and varied, from growing up with her parents collection of Billy Joel and Elton John records through to the beautifully crafted lyrics of Fiona Apple, Ani di Franco and David Gray. Whilst she cites these artists for their musical poignancy, she credits Christina Aguilera, Alanis Morrisette and Coldplay for her desire to write songs that ‘start you at a point and leave you somewhere else entirely’.

In the studio Bridget has been working with acclaimed producer Paul Wiltshire. Splitting his time between LA and Australia, he has produced artists such as the Backstreet Boys, Delta Goodrem and Tina Arena. According to Bridget ‘he just gets her’.

2006 is going to be an exciting year for Bridget. “I feel like I have kept my music to myself for long enough and now it is time to let go. I hope people will get as much enjoyment from it as I do.”
