Really enjoying this album from Bronwynne Brent a Mississippi Delta born singer-songwriter who currently splits her time between Greenville, MS and Austin, TX, Stardust is Bronwynne’s second album (her debut Deep Black Water was released in 2011) and features a dozen self-penned songs that showcase Bronwynne’s wonderful vocal which walks the line somewhere between an R’n'B chanteuse and Southern Americana belle – wonderfully emotive with detailed phrasing that really brings her words to life and perfectly fits the essence and themes of the songs, of broken hearts, disappointment, loss and betrayal “I don’t set out to write dark love songs…but I do like a minor key!” – it is after all in the sadness where the real beauty lies.
