Piece of Mind
Sarah Brindell grew up in a purple house on a hill in San Francisco. She was raised by a loving, slightly eccentric family of professional musicians, composers and writers (her mother is in the San Francisco Symphony, and her father is in the SF Opera and Ballet orchestras). During her childhood, she was happily inundated with lessons and performances in classical and jazz piano, poetry, acting, singing, and dance. Currently, she teaches songwriting at Berklee College of Music, and performs all over Boston, MA. She released 'Piece of Mind' in November of 2003. Cameo appearances are made by her mother, Jill Brindel, on cello, her father, Bill Klingelhoffer, on French horn, her aunt Mary Stolper, on flute, and her brother Louis Klingelhoffer, on bass, throughout 4 of the seven soulful songs (+ 1 hidden track!!) on the album. '...if anything is going to put us in the right groove, it's this newly minted diva of funk, pop, and jazz....Brindell's debut CD, 'Piece of Mind,' has been soothing our soul of late.' -Boston Globe '...a throw back to the days of Billie Holiday when the music was metaphor for turmoil and trouble but sounded like honey...Brindell's voice acts as salve to comfort...raw sexual energy dressed up in retro-rhythm and a honey-warm voice can't disguise the core - pure seduction.' -Boston Girl Guide '...to say her voice is flawless would be an understatement...[Piece of Mind] is full of songs that really grab the listener's full attention.' -Best Female Musicians Performing solo, or with the help of an amazing band, featuring Mike Null (Toni Lynn Washington Band) on guitar, Aaron Bellamy (Sam Kininger Band) on bass, and Mauricio Zottarelli (Dig Trio) on drums/percussion, Sarah Brindell continues to share her love of making music, and her ability to captivate an audience, with a community that is steadily growing.
