Namoli Brennet Launched a Kickstarter Campaign (And We Miss Her)

Posted By on Fri, Aug 29, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Although Namoli Brennet no longer calls Tucson home (she's missed and I hope she misses us too), that's no reason to not throw some love her way.

The popular singer/songwriter just launched a Kickstarter campaign to help her record a new album:

One of my absolute *favorite* things in the world is being in the studio - recording, producing, picking up instruments left and right, losing track of time and sometimes even forgetting to eat or drink for hours on end. I've been doing so much traveling and writing over the past few years and have just been waiting for the right time, for some stillness, to sort through it all and see what jumps out.

As it turns out, a lot of meaningful songs. Some I've had the chance to break in live, like "Gabriel", "Babylon" and "Bleecker Street" - to me, those feel like the kind of songs that I had help with, that reached some kind of depth of meaning that is impossible without a little divine spark. Others, newer ones - they all have some of that. Some of them involve me continuing to beat the bejesus out of my guitar, and others have the most delicate, wispy accompaniment. Lyrically, there is a very poetic thread that connects the album - the potential title track, "Ditch Lilies", was inspired by finding these beautiful flowers proudly growing by the side of a gravel road. And there are a lot of stories on the CD that connect with that idea, finding beauty in unexpected places, in people and places that are often overlooked.

So - I'm so excited to dig into this collection of songs and flesh them out, see what they want and need to feel complete. And I'm beyond excited for them to find their way to your ears and hearts and do what they do best.
