If you want to hear something funky, vibrant and fresh, listen to Edie Brikell's "Volcano", it's Hot, Literally!
Edie is a seasoned enthusiast of life that has recorded many songs and jammed with several bands. Her music is that of someone who has lived both good and tail sides of the coin. And fortunately for us, she has learned to play the guitar and write beautiful songs throughout her journey.
Her music consistently contains real people, real lives and real love.
"Volcano" talks of a young woman with a heart of fire that can magnetically draw you in, but at the same time will burn you if you get too close. Hence the name "Volcano", beautiful to watch from a far, but can potentially be deadly up close. We've all heard of or seen women like that, the lady that won't ride the bus because she's already been where it's going. The lady that paints her own house because it needs to be done. And the lady that has experienced enough life to record several high-quality albums.
One thing I love about Edie's music is that you can hear the maturity in her voice. Most women try to hide the wisdom that they have collected over the years, but not Edie, she let's it show. Edie strikes me as that "Tell it like it is" friend and a no-nonsense lover of many things in her life. As you begin to get a feel for Edie's music, it's easy to wonder if she's not just reading a page out of her diary.
"Waiting on a cool, quiet night" - Edie Brickell(Volcano)
Hey guys, we can totally relate to that line! When a woman is upset you will know it and she makes sure you know it! And when a woman is hurt she can't help, but show it. This is the cool-n-quiet period when she's at her most vulnerable, most sensitive because the build up has been released. The pressure of rejection, disappointment and every other challenge she faces stores up daily until she hits her threshold. Once that last ingredient is added- whether it's that silly comment you made at lunch or a change in temperature occurs, it's hot lava for miles around.
So fellas, treat ya women good because they go through tough shiet everyday just like we do. They may not be driving forklifts or installing power lines, but they could sometimes use that last cold brew in the fridge when they get home. The benefits of treating them well is that you learn to see the smoke signals before the eruption even occurs at it's deepest point. Another thing to remember is that you must never put out their flame, only help them to keep it on a low simmer. And when she erupts-she will, don't put her down because your "Volcano" is only human.
