The beautiful Brianna Carpenter launched her 2nd album “On So It Goes” at the Old Museum last weekend.
It’s a gorgeous mix of songs that showcase this woman’s remarkable talent.
We got to meet her and her band, and had a quick chat before the show.
She told us the story of the album; that it’s been a labour of love. It’s been totally DIY, all written, arranged, produced, recorded, engineered by Brianna at her home studio over the past year.
In addition to that, she and her lovely husband have worked on the cover art, design, merchandising, starting a record label, building a website… you name it, and this incredible team made it happen, including pulling this show together.
The trick, she tells me, is to have a plan. I’m guessing it’s a pretty detailed one, because not only is the album gorgeous, but the presentation of the room, the merchandise that she says she wanted to be something she herself would like to wear, and the obvious camaraderie of the band speak of a diligent attention to detail.
It had always been a goal for Brianna to perform in a room like the Old Museum with a string quartet. Check that one off the list!
They give a wonderful performance, well received by the audience, and doing justice to the beauty of both the venue and Brianna’s songs.
What’s next for Brianna Carpenter? Another labour of love, which will start after performing at the Teneriffe festival and having a break.
