Sarah Brindell grew up in a purple house on a hill in San Francisco. She was raised in a family of professional musicians, composers and published writers. She began dancing at 3, playing piano at 5, and singing at 14. To this day, she is a constant performer. Behind the piano or keyboard, she performs a melodious blend of soul, jazz, Bossa Nova, pop and R&B that continues to captivate audiences around the world.
Recently, she has joined forces with an astounding rhythm section: The Nates, comprised of the classy bootie-shakin stylistics of Nate Edgar on bass, and the sweet wave-like groove of Nathan Sabanayagam on drums. Guest appearances are made by Jeff Lockhart, Mike Keenan, Matt Jenson, and Sam Kininger the funkmaster of the alto sax. They emerge in 2008 fresh out of Chillhouse Studios in Charlestown, MA, where they just finished working on their new EP, Dandelion. To listen to audio samples or buy the CD, click here.

"Have you ever wondered what honey sounds like? Brindell is a soulful, sexy siren from the same beehive as Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and Erykah Badu. Behind the piano, she performs a melodious blend of funk, jazz, and soul that is a remedy for the ear - and the sweet tooth, too."

"...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."
"...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."
