Brandy Zdan

NYC 2015 / Video

Although multi-instrumentalist songwriter Brandy Zdan calls her new, self-titled album her full-length “debut,” there’s no mistaking this seasoned performer for any kind of rookie. For the better part of the last decade, the native Canadian — now living in Nashville, TN— has garnered acclaim as half of the gothic folk/roots duo Twilight Hotel, with two albums, 2008’s Highway Prayer and 2011’s When the Wolves Go Blind, nominated for prestigious Juno Awards (Canada’s Grammy), as a formidable multi-instrumentalist (touring and recording with the Americana all-girl band the Trishas), and even as a solo artist (with LoneStarMusic hailing her 2013 Lone Hunter EP as “a one-woman tour de force.”) But according to the artist herself, all of that was merely a prelude to the aptly-titled Brandy Zdan, the most focused expression of her musical identity to date.   “Ladies and Gentlemen, consider this video to be a primer in this extraordinary artist. She completely blew us away in New York City,” said Outlaw founder Ryan Spaulding. “And just you wait until you hear her full-length debut, possibly the best thing I’ve heard all year long. Remember the name Brandy Zdan!”
