Oh yeah, I forgot to mention Brandi’s most righteous cellist, Josh Neuman. You can check out Josh in my Flickr photos.
If it wasn’t enough that I absolutely love Brandi’s voice and musical style AND that she’s a disciple of Ray LaMontagne, all my musical worlds collided when I discovered that Brandi recently participated in Mayercraft, John Mayer’s musical cruise. Some of you will recall JM’s lovely “suit”.
Here is Brandi and Josh doing a lovely, late night rendition of Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright:
Man, I love that…It’s amazing how she can make music with just a guitar or with a full band.
And how about this little diddy from the Lido deck:
And you got to love a Freddy Mercury sing along:
Bohemian Rhapsody and Love Songs
If the fates weren’t strange enough, also performing at Mayercraft was new sensation, Colbie Caillat. Here’s a little Bubbly from Colbie on the cruise:
and surprised by The Man hisself, with a little guitar accompniment on Battle:
Of course, it’s apparent that a good time was had by all. I would have loved to have been up on deck in the hot sun, sipping a Pina Colada and being seranaded by one John Mayer. Belief IS a beautiful armor.
