about

"Solitary Refinement" "...is the blueprint for everything that Brenda has been through and dreamed of, and lost and gained. You can hear, see, and feel all of that both in her voice, and in the arrangements." says Brian Frederick, Carsey’s current producer and sound engineer on her new record, who’s worked with names like DJ Quik, Whiz Khalifa, Isabella Summers (the Machine of Florence + the Machine) and even the Backstreet Boys on their 20th anniversary record." - Cheantay Jensen for The Edge LB

This album is Brenda Carsey's first full-length studio album. This album can sonically be described as 'Alternative Soul', a genre created by Carsey to describe the strong soulful emotions from her vocals and the wide variety of other musical ingredients of her music. "Solitary Refinement" is a sort of modern twist on a 1970s soul album with rock, pop, and heavy jazz influences. The songs are extraordinarily honest, exposed, and keep the listener guessing. There is a feeling of freedom, poetic lyrics accompanied by fluid melodies, engaging chord progressions, funky rhythms, and a voice filled with passion and soul.
