Who Am I ?


October 2011

1: Who am I?

The Golden Throat of Burlesque.

2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?

I am a “bring the house down” singer in the burlesque and NYC downtown scene. I’m currently juggling several projects–every second Monday of the month I rock out while fronting the band, Ticket to Ride, in Beatles Burlesque at Public Assembly. I am at Nurse Bettie on the LES every other Thursday. And I’m always booked several times a month with Floating Kabarette at Galapagos Art Space, and The Rum House in Times Square.

Also, look for me this October at BB Kings in the New York Burlesque Festival.

3: Where are you from and where are you going?

I’m originally from Baltimore, I live in Brooklyn, and I am going everywhere my heart takes me.

4: Who is your biggest hero?

Mmmm…I’ll take a BLT, please. Wait…what?

5: What book is your bible?

The World Famous **Bob** lent me her copy of Pema Chodron’s Start Where you Are once, and it changed my life. I also like The Velveteen Rabbit.

6: What are some things you love? And some things you hate?

Love: Crisp autumn air, peanut butter, soul, baby animals, kissing, traveling, NYC. I try not to waste too much energy on hate. It’s an energy sucker.

7: What is your raison d’être?

To make love to your eardrums.

8: What is your favorite color?

Pink, I think.

9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

I’ve always had a hard on for Batman. Michael Keaton’s Batman….

10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

Union Square Park. I could people and dog-watch for hours.. and I have. Plus, I love the green market there.

11: What turns you on?

Otis Redding.

12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

Can I get a witness?

Give your regards to Broadway Brassy, the Golden Throat of Burlesque. This could-be love child of Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin is one of the most sought after singers today, captivating audiences with her sassy soul. A demo singer for Motown Records, Brassy made her way to the Big Apple thanks to the help of her hometown hero John Waters. This NYC award-winning chanteuse has graced the stages of Joe’s Pub, The Highline Ballroom, Webster Hall, The Slipper Room and countless others.

Catch her monthy at Public Assembly singing with her band, Ticket to Ride at Beatles Burlesque, Thursdays at Nurse Bettie, or at Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn or The Rum House located in the heart of Times Square.
