Song Premiere: Eden Brent — “Jigsaw Heart”

Juli Thanki | May 2nd, 2014

Singer-songwriter Eden Brent has flown under the Americana radar for years, but in 2014, that ends. Her new album, Jigsaw Heart, which comes out next week, is an irresistible, piano-pounding collection that blends soul, alt-country, blues, and R&B.

Brent, who’s also known as “Little Boogaloo,” a nickname given to her during a 16-year apprenticeship with  boogie woogie master Boogaloo Ames, worked with producer Colin Linden (Lindi Ortega, Lucinda Williams) on Jigsaw Heart, which was recorded at Nashville’s old RCA Studio A, now owned by Ben Folds.

This morning, we’re proud to premiere the title track from that record. Listen to the moving ballad below:
