Aretha Franklin, Sade
Her songs are styled with smooth sounds of Sade and the soulful influence of Aretha, but make no mistake, Bridget Marie's creations are all original. "I've always found it easy to express myself on paper but i sing from my heart", she says.
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, a hot bed of musical talent, she began tapping out rhythms on empty oatmeal boxes at age 2 and playing songs by ear on the piano at age 7. By age 10 she was composing her own music.
