Nashville, TN-based singer/songwriter Brandy Zdan has had quite an interesting career – she was a co-founder of the Canadian Roots/Americana duo Twilight Hotel.  After that act split up, Zdan was recruited to be a member of the Austin, TX-based band, The Trishas. She then relocated to Nashville to start a solo career – and her debut full-length effort, which is slated for release later this year and features members of My Morning Jacket as part of her studio band, reveals an artist who has gone though a decided and radical period of reinvention.

Zdan’s latest single “More of a Man,” singing at the song’s get it together fool chorus and hook “ I’m not waiting on you to come around / But when you do you better be more of a man than me” with an understated confidence and strength – the sort that simply says “I deserve a real man who gets what kind of woman that I am.” But interestingly enough, the song pairs that understated confidence with a sound that possesses elements of indie rock, New Wave and country that makes the song sound like a feminist anthem with a subtly coquettish feel.
