In addition to singing lead in her classic R&B/soul band, Brandy also performs as an intimate solo act for corporate events, weddings, memorials, festivals and house concerts. Brandy's solo repertoire features a dynamic mix of covers and originals from a wide variety of genres including singer/songwriter, pop, jazz, soul, folk, country, and blues. In addition to her own originals, she also performs songs from artists such as Eva Cassidy, Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, Adele, Leonard Cohen, Jennifer Warnes, Etta James, Paul Simon, Aretha Franklin, Alicia Keys, Patty Griffin, Jewel, Tracy Chapman, Patsy Cline, and more...

With over 25 years of performing experience as a singer/songwriter and song interpreter, Brandy has appeared in Canada, the US, Latin America, and Portugal where she performed her original song "Just Because I'm Alive" at the 2017 World Basic Income Congress in Lisbon. Originally from British Columbia's Okanagan Valley, Brandy moved out to the west coast at age 17, studied music at Capilano College, and spent the next 12 years performing around Greater Vancouver before releasing her first self-titled independent CD in 1999.  In 2001 she re-located to Regina, Saskatchewan and went on to release an additional four independent CDs over the next decade. Her most recent CD "Real Good Love" was recorded in Nashville with several high profile musicians, including multiple Grammy award-winning saxophonist Phil Kenzie and Bonnie Raitt's long time guitarist George Marinelli. Brandy made some wonderful friends in Regina, but she missed the ocean and the mountains and decided to move back to BC in the fall of 2017, settling in Victoria. In addition to performing as much as possible, she's now writing new material for a 6th independent CD release. Join her newsletter to receive automatic monthly updates on live shows, CD releases, and other career news.
