Addie Brik Video Premiere
Addie Brik has shared the video to An End To Wind, the latest track taken from her album, I Have A Doctor On Board, which was released on June 2018 on Itza Music.
Hailing from Savannah Georgia, Addie Brik relocated to the UK in 1998. She started writing poetry in her teens, which led her to the prestigious Naropa Institute where she was mentored by Allen Ginsberg and famed CBS journalist, John Steinbeck Jr. Bitten by the performance bug, she joined a young artist’s troupe on Francis Ford Coppola’s lot at Zoetrope with such luminaries as Ed Harris and produced and acted in a production of Sam Shepard’s ‘Cowboy Blues’ there.
Peter Gabriel discovered her demo tape, which led to a deal with Geffen Records with Andy Gill (Gang of Four) producing. Her collaborations and co-writes include work with The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Simple Minds, Plaid, Tarwater, Wendy and Lisa, Sugarhill Gang, Luke Vibert, BJ Cole, members of Funkadelic, Fishbone, Maxim Rysanov, Andrei Samsonov, HB Barnum (Aretha Franklin’s legendary writer and arranger), Kate St. John and John Philip Shenale.
Currently residing in Scotland, the breathtaking landscape there played a major role in shaping the record, “Scotland’s beautiful coastline and dark skies imbued every song on the album. It was written at home in Troon, I’d break up writing days by walking the dog on the beach with Ailsa Craig and Arran off in the distance.”
