Edie Brickell & New Bohemians

Edie Brickell was born in 1966 in the Oak Cliff section of Dallas. She attended Southern Methodist University for a year and a half before mustering the courage in a bar one night in 1985 to get up on-stage with a local band, the New Bohemians. She joined the band and wrote songs over the next year as the band changed and evolved. They finally settled on the personnel of Brad Houser (bass), Kenny Withrow (guitar), and Matt Chamberlain (drums) before taking off for Rockfield Studios in Wales to record their debut album. That album, Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars, released by Geffen Records, revealed Brickell to be a songwriter with a unique perspective and a singer with an intimate, conversational style. The album was hailed by critics and became a massive hit, selling over a million copies and producing the Top Ten hit "What I Am."

After the disappointing performance of their follow-up album, Ghost of a Dog, the New Bohemians disbanded. Brickell married Paul Simon and the couple had a child. After several years of remaining artistically quiet, she released her first solo album in late summer 1994. While Picture Perfect Morning was pleasantly received, it wasn't a return to the million-selling heights of the New Bohemian zenith. This was fine with Brickell, who had burned out from the press attention and touring that followed Rubberbands' success, and was content to quietly issue the record while focusing on her and Simon's young son. Geffen naturally thought otherwise, but Brickell was resolute. She wouldn't return to recording until almost ten years later. In the interim, two greatest-hits packages appeared: Best Of on MCA International and Hip-O's Ultimate Collection from 2002. Of these, the latter was most comprehensive, drawing on material both with and without the Bohemians and featuring seven previously unreleased tracks.

Brickell finally hit restart on her solo career in 2003 with Volcano (Cherry/Universal). Produced by Charlie Sexton, the LP explored some new stylistic avenues inside the familiar rootsy landscape, and showed off Brickell's newly acquired acoustic guitar skills. She supported the effort with the usual round of late-night TV appearances and a brief tour. In 2006, she reunited with some of the original members of the New Bohemians for Stranger Things, the first studio album from the group in almost 16 years. Tragedy struck the band a year later when keyboardist Carter Albrecht was shot in the head and killed in a bizarre misunderstanding involving his neighbor. Two Brickell projects were released in 2011, an eponymous solo album (her third) and a collaboration with Steve Gadd, Pino Palladino, and Andy Fairweather Low called the Gaddabouts. Love Has Come for You, a collaboration with Steve Martin which featured her lyrics and singing over Martin's banjo-composed melodies, appeared in the spring of 2013. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

This song brings back memories
would love to hear Brickell /Simon collaboratio n
Lyrics make perfect sense to me.
Boy are the comments overblown! I like Edie...but really, she is 2nd shelf female singer.
She was really rockin' when she sang duets with her husband, Steve Lawrence. She had a big single years ago titled Blame it on the Bossa Nova. She had a fantastic booty when singers used to pad their bottoms. She was always on T.V. selling gourmet food called Edie's Gourmet Food. She was way ahead of time before fat people worried about their calories. It's truly an honor to share my comments with her groupies.
If I have an alter-ego it is Edie. Poet, hippie, singer...don ' t I wish I could sing so well. Circle is a great song for friends.
Great tune! this whole album is awesome..thi s is just the only one to hit the radio, disappointin g l y .
good tune what I am..!

Listen closely, Proht. They sure do!!!!
She's beautifully soothing and real. I love to listen to her when I'm blue, when I'm happy and when I'm serene. She brings it all around.
Check out the song, He Said, on Ghost of a Dog. Best song they ever released. No BS, it has great lyrics, she goes off like Janis Joplin and the tempo changes are sweet as well as the melody
shooting rubberbands always reminds me of the youth of my marriage its when i first met my wife, we still have the cassette
one of the most memorable artist in my head ever!!!!! I can always sing a tune and feel myself go for a second...... . . . . . . Edie Brikell you are one of my favs, love and peace******* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Catchy yes, but the lyrics make no sense.

I was 8 or 9 listening to the Rubberbands album over and over. All the lyrics memorized. My life soon moved me to another state with another parent. I was about 15 lying in my sleeping bag at a friends house late one night listening to the radio when I heard "What I am," for the first time in so many years... I can't tell you what that felt like, laying there in the darkness, I think I even had tears, it was like coming home. Now I'm 23 and I still love this album. It's classic.

GOD I havent heard this forever. Cheers! I love it.
I have been crazy about this woman from the moment I first laid eyes on her in a music video. She lights up the world for me. I watched her video from the Windows 95 installation disk hundreds of times and I never get tired of it. I even have it on my website at: http://www.b r o o k s v i l l e b u s i n e s s . c o m / c a l e n d a r 0 3 - 0 8 . h t m l # e d i e _ b r i c k e l l
