Editors’ Notes

Is Brandi Shearer evolving into a late-night chanteuse? By the nocturnal sounds of 2009’s Love Don’t Make You Juliet, she’s on a warpath of sorts with the blues, asserting her most tribal instincts on “When You Wake Up” and serving up Van Morrison-like vocal trysts for “How Glad I Am,” while the band crank up or tune down as the occasion demands. Norah Jones’ producer Craig Street keeps things surprisingly dark, tweaking the guitars and keyboards for an added urgency. Shearer herself keeps a seductive eye on things, presenting herself as an extremely versatile singer who spends most of her time on the wrong side of the tracks and the dark end of the street. There’s a cool slink to the muted groove of “I Don’t Love You,” a psychedelic shriek to “Losers and Freaks” and a gentle sway to the ballad “I Just Want You to Love Me” where the chords come crashing down around her.

Customer Reviews

I have been waiting a year for this record to come out!!

It's even better than I expected. Brandi is on her own now with her own label and the music is so amazing. NPR played "How Glad I Am" all day last Friday. My favorite track on this so far is "When You Wake Up" but every song is great. Incredible work Brandi! Get to work on the next one! :)

I can't stop listening to this album....

Brandi Shearer is the real deal. It is rare to find a combination of a great voice with great lyrics and great production. Each time I listen to the tunes I find something else....so I just keep listening. Worth checking out!

Love Dont Make You Juliet

This is one of the best new singers and her best CD to date. Every cut is memorable with 3 sure hits. "When You Wake Up" is a driving march set by great banjo, sharp percussion and sexy vocals. Ms. Shearer covers the classic of Nancy Wilson's "How Glad I Am" and sets a new standard. She takes a softer approach to the song that gives it a tenderness the original lacked. The title song "Love Dont Make You Juliet" is a haunting song and shows off another range of vocal talent from Ms. Shearer.
