Brittany Brodie: See You Soon

There is a growing body of songs about the tragedy that took place on a lonely stretch of highway outside Tisdale, SK–but this one nails it. Linda Ronstadt couldn’t have captured it better, and that’s saying one heck of a lot.

Brittany Brodie: See You Soon

By David Farrell

Brittany Brodie – "See You Soon" (Independent): We first cottoned on to this extraordinary Nashville-based, Mt. Forest, ON singer-songwriter two years ago with the release of the single, “Phoenix.” Her purity of voice is quite remarkable and layer on the fact that this song is steeped in personal tragedy and dedicated to the families affected by the Humboldt Broncos bus tragedy, and you have enough tears to turn a stream into a river.


Co-written with hit writer Reggie Hamm two years ago, she explains in the sell-sheet to this single: “I was in Nashville when news broke of the bus crash …and like all Canadians I was devastated. The next day it came to me, the song "See You Soon" I had written two years ago was going to be part of a bigger plan. This song is for them. Last week we recorded it with heavy hearts. This song is for all of you, I hope it helps you in your healing process.”
