Exploring a variety of musical styles is not something recording artists are generally encouraged to do, but sometimes you just can''t help it.
Beginning with the true account of an unexpected and infatuating landing at the Drew, Mississippi
airstrip, base of her parent''s flying service, combining country story telling verses with a sort of bubble gum chorus, Brandi proceeds to an interpretation of a Tracy Chapman classic in a style you might expect to hear a lot more of if Marlene Dietrich opened a cabaret in Rolling Fork .
Raised in Drew, Mississippi, where her mother, Lyle, says that she bounced on ''Pops'' Staples knee, in a house that had previously been the childhood home of photographer William Eggleston, Brandi grew up surrounded by the mystique that has made the Mississippi Delta a cradle of musical passions, explored in the country-blues influenced ''( Mississippi ) Countryside'' .

There is a transcendent logic to this eclectic combination of original and cover songs that has something to do with the way in which an individual life , the history of a region , the history of music itself and the convoluted dynamics of producing an album can overlap and signify in the grand scheme of things .

All of which Brandi seems to take on faith, and in the spirit in which God must have intended it, and has a lot of fun doing it .
