For the third time in a row (how many artists can claim THAT?), Eden Brent has released an album that’s earned a Blues Music Award “best album” nomination. Previously, Mississippi Number One earned an Acoustic Album of the Year win, then Ain’t Got No Troubles was nominated for Album of the Year. Now, her sparkling new Jigsaw Heart has once again earned her an Acoustic Album of the Year nomination.
Eden’s proven herself in the scene as a triple threat: piano master, soulful singer and superb songwriter. This is a good time, though, to underscore just how much acclaim she’s gotten for her piano skills alone. This is the fifth time in the last seven years that she’s earned a “Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year” nomination from the BMAs — and there are a lot of great piano players out there! Congratulations, Eden.
