DANIELLE BRADBERY SHINES ON RETURN TO NBC’s THE VOICE
Four Years Later, the Season 4 Winner Performed “Worth It” From Brand New Sophomore Album, I DON’T BELIEVE WE’VE MET, live
LOS ANGELES — After winning Season 4 of NBC’s The Voice in
2013, Danielle Bradbery found success, yet she still felt like she
needed to find her own identity. Wanting to take hold of the creative
process on her next project, she took four years to hone her writing
skills and come into her own. The Texas-native showed that
transformative sound when she returned to its stage for a live performance of her album cut, “Worth It,” in celebration of her BMLG Records sophomore album, I DON’T BELIEVE WE’VE MET, that NPR calls “a significant, and successful, reinvention captured in a taut 10 tracks,” available now.
“I am so thankful to everyone at The Voice
and to all the incredible fans that have supported me along the way.
They have stuck with me all this time and it’s incredible,” explained
Bradbery. “I had some growing up to do since I won, so it was amazing to
return where it all started for me, to show everyone how much I’ve
grown, and what I’ve been up to.”
stark difference from the denim and country boots she wore on the show
in 2013, Bradbery re-introduced herself last night singing the track
that Rolling Stone calls “gutsy” and “self-assured.” A long way from the bubbly songs she recorded at age 17, “Worth It,” People
says focuses with “emotion is the focal point,” and speaks to the
confidence the singer found in the last four years. The tune, that shot
to Top 5 on the iTunes Country Songs chart after The Voice performance, demonstrates the re-introductory nature of I DON’T BELIEVE WE’VE MET, that led to the Washington Post to tout Bradbery’s “powerful ballads” in a profile.
It’ is such a perfect song to re-introduce myself to fans,” Bradbery
continues. “I was so shy when I won this show. I needed this song to
remind me to stand up for myself, and I hope it will help fans gain
confidence as they conquer their dreams.”
the first time co-writing seven out of 10 songs on the new album, NPR
recognizes Bradbery has a “newfound diaristic punch.” Her hometown
paper, the Houston Chronicle declared the album is “a rebirth, a
portrait of personal and musical evolution,” that is “one of the year’s
nicest surprises, a cohesive collection of musings on relationships
with nary a wasted moment.”
