Brenda Bledsoe resides in Loxley, AL. She has been playing guitar and flute since grade school, and performs throughout the Gulf Coast area, both solo, and with the band GypsySpark. "The greatest gift as a performer is when listeners not only hear, but also feel my songs."
Brenda has been a songwriter for over 12 years, inspired by the places she has lived, and people who've impacted her life. She has a crystal clear voice with an Americana/folk style, and sings with heart-felt intensity. Local fans often refer to her as "Emmy Lou", with soft, soulful vocals. Brenda's musical influences range from Alison Krauss, Stevie Nicks and Natalie Merchant, to John Denver and John Prine. She performs a vast repertoire of both original songs and familiar cover tunes, and captures audiences with her dreamy Native American flute music.
Brenda is currently recording her first solo record, to be released in early 2020, co-produced by her bandmate, singer-songwriter Jimmy Lumpkin. GypsySpark released their debut album, World Shakers, in May, 2019. Please join her mailing list at the bottom of the HOME page for performance times and contact info.
