Make It Real
Bridget's singing career began in Washington, DC, where she performed in Capitol Hill restaurants and with local musical production companies. For the last 10 years, she's enchanted public audiences in southern California with her sultry and clear smooth-jazz renditions and standards. She is currently performing with Grammy nominated pianist Tom Barabas at G5 George's on Fifth, a restaurant in San Diego's downtown, prestigious Gaslamp district. The release of her new CD, Make it Real, in April 2004 includes eight original songs. Bridget began writing lyrics to the haunting melodies created by Los Angeles pianist Garry Galloway and added one of her own songs, Be My Artist, to the CD compilation. The songs created by Galloway and Bridget are compared by some to those created by the famous songwriting team of Alan and Marilyn Bergman. The love songs are what you might expect to hear, sitting on a stretch of island beach: relaxing, contemplative, but with the movement of a sometimes wild and expressive soprano sax, acoustic guitar and piano. The CD includes some of her favorites from Sergio Mendes (So Many Stars), the Isley Brothers (For the Love of You), Herbie Hancock (Harvest Time) as well as the ever popular Night and Day, and a soundtrack favorite by Lauren Wood (Fallen). Bridget was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her interest in music began at age 12, when she studied marimba and eventually performed for numerous public audiences. The release of this CD has inspired her to create music and lyrics for two additional songs, which will be recorded as a 2-track single in the next several months. Bridget currently resides in La Jolla, California with her husband, two children and three dogs.
