Rising Blues Star
Brigitte Purdy has felt that need to sing about her own inner feelings and emotions since she was a child.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Brigitte Purdy has soon expressed the great desire to become a singer, with a particular inclination to soul, blues and R&B. It didn’t take too long for the American singer and songwriter, thanks to her pure and silky singing voice, to be noticed and asked to perform on the same stage with artists including Walter Trout, Sugaray Rayford, Tim Bogart, Dionne Warwick and Dolly Parton while also having the opportunity to sing background vocals for such artists as The Who and Paul Rodgers.
Brigitte released her debut album, Still I Rise in 2018, and it continues to receive airplay from Blues radio around the globe. The success of the album has given Brigitte new energy and drive
and she has already begun planning for her sophomore album to the delight of her anxious fans.
