Bridget Brigitte runs her own record label (Bionic Sisters Productions) and performs her music on guitar, piano, and harp. She has been compared to Joni Mitchell and her style can be called alternative folk pop rock with splashes of blues and jazz. Alongside her life of writing and languages, she pursues her lifelong passion for composing, and presents some of her work in her independently-released debut CD Where Birds Meet in the Rain and accompanying DVD of videos (2007). Among other venues, she has performed at
LA (US), The Anchor (Canada), Slattery's, The Chancery Pub (Ireland), Le Duplex, and Blues Etc. (France), Latitude 22 (Mexico) and was featured in the World Fusion Divas Concert Series in Hollywood as well as in GIRL and Tsunami (ABC). The night that Bridget performed at a historic Reduce Global Warming fundraiser at Rancho Valencia, more than $1 million was raised. Matching her talents with those of producer/engineer David Chenoweth (Jewel, Body Count), engineer Joe Marlett (Blink 182), drummer Paul Kimbarow (Shanana), bassist Dave Curtis (AJ Croce), percussionist Allan Phillips (Patti Labelle) among others, Bridget offers a unique collection of original songs. Her music videos challenge contemporary cliches and have been shown in the Payne County Film Festival (TV 33, cable 3), Access Central TV(Time Warner), and on Songsalive. She is a regular TV guest on the Shemm Show (Adelphia, Comcast) and has aired her own Bridget Brigitte TV Special on Cox Cable networks. She is also a 2003 Call to Arts/Artists Helping Artists Creative Vision Song Contest winner for her song "I've Got my Rendezvous Too," a 2004 Los Angeles Music Awards Adult Contemporary Artist of the Year nominee (alongside actress turned jazz singer Minnie Driver), a 2005 Women's International Center Spirit Award winner, and 2006 Living Legacy Award Honoree alongside Wonder Woman Lynda Carter and many other luminaries.
Having performed for years in Paris, Bridget has garnered critical acclaim: L'Arc describes her as "a messenger of the new millennium..." The Folk Connection writes that "She combines the energy of Alanis Morrissette with the force of Sheryl Crow, the originality of Paula Cole with the tenderness of Sarah MacLachlan..." She has lent her musical talents to help these organizations among others: The Grammy’s MusiCares, GoGirlsMusic, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Vietnamese American Women Artists, National Breast Cancer Foundation, Artivist Independent Film Collective, and Artists Helping Artists. She is past President of the San Diego Songwriter's Guild, CEO of Women's International Center, Creative Director for 2 Life 18 Help and Rescue continuing Katrina and Disaster Relief, and Advisor for the Asian American Repertory Theater. In addition to her work as a musician, Bridget is a poet and writer whose work has been published widely. She holds a Ph.D. in French and Comparative Humanities and lives in San Diego, CA.
