"...her voice, spine-stingingly soulful, has a stop-you-in-your tracks essence." - Alex Gallacher, FOLK RADIO UK
"We hear tastes from Natalie Merchant, Billy Joel, and Bonnie Raitt." -Ryan Cassata, ROCK THE PIGEON
"a distinctive sound that is deeply soulful, intimate, jazz-inflected, and sensuous." -Ali McGhee, AVL GRIT

IF I LET YOU IN
‘If I Let You In’ is Brie Capone’s highly anticipated sophomore EP. Delicate like morning light yet as arresting as a thunderstorm, ‘If I Let You in’ is a dynamic collection of songs that showcase Capone’s vocal finesse. Settling somewhere between vintage-pop and soulful alt-country, Capone expresses an empowering vulnerability reminiscent of Joni Mitchell, Adele and Blake Mills. ‘If I Let You In’ is a sonic narrative of Brie's journey to trust her instincts.
Capone’s full band arrangements are both classic and contemporary, drawing inspiration from Dawes and Bon Iver.
Following the release of ‘If I Let You In,’ Capone will tour nationally to promote the EP.
