Brandi on Mayercraft

05 Mar

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:

  The Weight

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.

    Hey Girl, long time no comment….still…I lurk.

    I just can’t be silent now because I’ve fallen, head over heels, for Ms. Brandi Carlile…she’s writing my feelings…and her voice and melodies…ahhh…love.

    I just wanted to thank you for introducing me to her music. I’ve been obsessively listening to her for days now. I bought the 2005 self titled cd and will get The Story asap.

    Thank you for giving me a new obsession.

    Bama — That’s the best thing I’ve heard in months. So glad you caught “the virus”. Good to see you.
