Music Week said of The Voice:-“She has the artistry of a Piaf or Garland and is without a doubt an emerging vocal and performing talent!’ Radio Two’s Gloria Hunniford commented “Brenda has a wonderful, powerful voice”. Brenda’s vocal range and engaging personality won further praise through TV appearances on such shows as Wogan, This Morning, TV-AM, The Les Dawson Show and Daytime UK. Brenda’s follow-up album was In Dreams, produced by Pip Williams, and featuring a 60-piece orchestra.
In December 1991 Brenda was selected from 600 female vocalists worldwide to participate in the network US TV show International Star Search. This competition is open to any professional artiste who, to date, has had little exposure in the USA. Brenda proved to be a winner again, winning her category to be named International Female Vocalist for 1992. The programme was aired across the States in May 1992 and was also seen in many other territories around the world. As well as her success on the TV and in concert, Brenda won critical acclaim playing the part of Mama Morton in the highly successful West End production of Chicago. Catching the acting bug, she then went on to develop her one-woman show Just For Joe which toured the country in 2003. Since then she has gone on to perform all over the world as well as at home in concert, and in a string of pantomimes which she always loves to do. Brenda is always in demand to perform away from her home in Scotland but in 2009 she has been seen more on her home soil and has plans to do much more in the future. A new album, Back Home, was recorded during the summer of 2009 and will be released in October. She intends to tour as much as possible in Scotland during 2010 and will be seen again performing Just for Joe.
