Brenda Lee White

 

       Brenda Lee White is a country artist originally from New Jersey, but currently living on the Gulf Coast of Florida, after moving from Alabama in 2015.  The artist, who has performed extensively in her home state of New Jersey, is stepping onto the national music scene with her first album, "It's Not About Me Anymore".

       "I am unique in my own style, while also showing appreciation for some of the greatest singers of all time," said White.    

       The artist's large repertoire includes new songs penned for her album by respected Nashville songwriters; recent country hits; and classic favorites. She effortlessly brings heartfelt melodies and lyrics to life with soaring vibrato, sustaining power, and gentle inflections. Her "beautifully toned" instrument easily transitions from country to Christian to patriotic - an emotional powerhouse for any occasion.

       White has performed at a host of events. Highlights include the "9/11 Tribute" in Cape May Courthouse, NJ; a welcome home celebration for troops returning from Iraq in Northfield, NJ; an author spotlight event at CLC Book Center in Northfield (NJ); local churches; and venues abroad including Wellington and Cape Town, South Africa. 

       She is just as at home in a concert hall as she is in a restaurant, church, fair, or festival. White inspires show-goers with country power ballads, and inspirational/Christian standards. She adds depth (and laughs) to her shows with her "outgoing, bubbly personality and sense of humor". Her one-of-a-kind musical presentation makes it easier to connect with audiences and make new fans. The artist is building a strong fan base on Facebook and Twitter.

       "Describing myself, I would have to say that I am not the 'usual' stereotypical country singer," the artist laughed, "I grew up in South Jersey, and I don't have that country accent."

       White says she inherited the desire and passion to sing from her mother. The artist remembers sitting for hours playing her parents' old country and gospel records. Before long, she knew the words to just about every classic country and gospel song. "Growing up, my parents loved country music," she continued. "I grew up on their music and became a fan when I was just a little girl. They even named me after the country music legend, Brenda Lee."

       Brenda sang with the praise team at the Community Church of the Nazarene in Northfield, NJ for eight years. That led to a host of solo singing appearances at various churches, weddings, and other venues. Many in the Cape May area are still talking about her heartfelt rendition of "God Bless America" at the town's "9/11 Tribute".

"(Brenda's) rendition of 'God Bless America' was very moving," said Charles M Leusner, former deputy mayor of Middle Township, NJ. "(She) has been blessed with a gift that (she) shared with us on that day."

       While visiting Nashville to conduct research for her new album, she had the opportunity to briefly step into Patsy Cline's shoes by recording the country classic, "Crazy" at the Ryman Auditorium. In June of 2014, she recorded her first album of country songs at Kim Copeland Productions on Music Row.

       White hand selected the songs on her 6 song EP with the help of veteran producer/songwriter Kim Copeland and some of Nashville's top songwriters.  Her goal was to find encouraging tunes of love, hope, and inspiration.

       "These are songs that will touch the hearts of listeners," White said. "I want to inspire the world singing these songs. The lyrics relate to anyone who has ever loved or been in love."

       The gentle ballad "Forever Everyday" allows the listener to see life through the eyes of a child.

       White encourages her fans to believe in themselves with the soaring "I Hope Your Heart Finds Wings".

       "Harmless Heart" expresses the "touching experiences" of a confident, faithful woman who tries to hold onto a man with a broken, untrusting heart.

       Her favorite song from the album, "It's Not About Me Anymore", reveals a deeper love that is directed toward others.

       White plans to sing songs from her album, as well as other great country classics at entertainment venues, conferences, fairs, concert halls, community events, and churches.

       "I've know Brenda since she was a child, but I didn't realize the talent she'd been blessed with until years later when I overheard her singing in the congregation at church," said Mary Lou Homan, director of music ministries for the Community Church of the Nazarene. "She sang so beautifully that you could actually 'feel' the message of the song. Her music truly comes from the heart. I know she will go on to touch the lives of many for years to come."

       "She has a beautiful vocal texture and an effortless delivery that is as smooth as a sip of fine whiskey, and a thoughtful array of songs that reflect some life experience," Copeland said after working with the artist in her Music Row studio. "She understands each song. She makes you believe that she has lived each of them, and it makes you want to hear her stories again and again."
