Upon first hearing singer/songwriter Christy Bruneau, she sounds like a cross between Natalie Merchant and Jewel. After spending just over 23 minutes listening to her debut CD however, the listener realizes that her style and playing are very much her own...There seems to be more angst to manifest in a song, and I, for one, would like to hear more.

Biography

Phoenix native and San Diego Music Award nominee Christy Bruneau wrote her first song at 23. Hooked on songwriting Bruneau uprooted and relocated to San Diego, California eventually landing herself just a couple blocks from the infamous Java Joe's on Newport avenue in Ocean Beach where she joined the stage with other aspiring singer-songwriters like Jason Mraz, Anya Marina, and more as well as opening for touring acts such as Xavier Rudd and The White Buffalo.
Over the last decade Bruneau continued writing songs and performing as well as recording with local musicians. She recorded her first CD Angels of Mercy by The Unknown Poets, which brought her success with song placement in films as well as a singing role in the film L.A. Twister. "Christy Bruneau's music relies on dichotomies:her vocals are polished, but guitar work edgy; there is an air of sweetness, but the sultry vocals suggest otherwise...stinging melodies of (songs) "Walk With Me" and "Simple Faith" highlight Bruneau's songwriting" by Mary Montgomery- San Diego Reader. Bruneau's 2nd CD Somewhere in the Middle released in 2010 brought her a nomination for Best Local Recording in the 2010 San Diego Music Awards and can be heard on KPRI's Homegrown Hour in San Diego, Meer Radio's Good Noise in the Netherlands, and Pandora.
