Brenda Bledsoe resides on a farm in Loxley, Alabama 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's songwriting is inspired by the many places she's 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 and Stevie Nicks, to Natalie Merchant and John Denver. She has performed in music festivals throughout the gulf coast area, and plays vast repertoire of both original songs and familiar cover tunes.
Brenda released her first solo record in August 2020, Feel The World, co-produced by her bandmate, singer-songwriter Jimmy Lumpkin. GypsySpark released their debut album, World Shakers, in 2019, which features Brenda's dreamy flute work. As a talented multi-instrumentalist, she learned to play the banjitar for their 2nd album, 'We Are on a Journey', released in January of 2021.
