Television and Broadway star Brandi Burkhardt is widely known for her breakout role on Hart of Dixie and her leading role in as Sophie in the Broadway Production of Mamma Mia, but here Brandi shows off her sweet silvery soprano and powerful belting, in a colorful, disco-twisted play of light and dark in her new solo debut EP TRANSPARENCY. Bringing the drama in the title song, this album is a blend of New Wave Pop reminiscent of Blondie and ABBA, along with dark soulful ballads. Touching on the female experience of fun, fantasy, there is also an undercurrent of the familiar foreboding those boxes put around smart successful beautiful women. It’s a genuine look behind the mirror.
