About Brigitte

To have the ability to sing is something that many of us are naturally gifted from a very early age. Very few individuals, though, are able to connect such ability to their own emotions and translate them into singing and songwriting.  Brigitte Rios 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 noted and asked to perform on the same stage with artists like Walter Trout, Sugaray Rayford, Tim Bogart Dionne Warwick, and Dolly Parton amongst others. Singing background vocals for such artists as The Who and Paul Rodgers. 

Once the ice of the music business was broken, Brigitte Rios Purdy's next step into connecting completely with music at 360 degrees was starting to write her own songs. Her profound, love and admiration for the late great B.B. King pushed the American artist to compose her very first song called Lucille, Don't You Weep, a blues ballad with clear references to King's most favourite guitar and the intensity of the sound coming from one of the most famous blues guitars of all time.

The song became the perfect platform for the singer and songwriter to combine her wonderful and unique voice with her new found talent as a lyricist and to inspire her to write more songs that would allow Purdy to show her phenomenal vocal skills. Encouraged by the positive comments of the music press worldwide, since her debut single, the American artist has then never stopped writing and recording new material. Another of the original songs coming from Purdy's repertoire, currently on constant heavy rotation on some of the biggest blues/rock radio in America, is her brand new single called Blues Angel. The tune is a superb blues ballad with tinges of jazz, with a flawless vocal performance from Purdy. The Californian artist is, though, not just a great blues interpreter but she has also written and recorded few catchy songs with a more blues/rock approach, like Rise Like The Water and Shot Heard Around The World, part of the original material belonging to the repertoire of this rising star in the music business. 

Many independent record labels are already trying to sign the American artist.
