Singer-Songwriter Brynn Cartelli Shares Dream Single, “Gemini”
Famous 19-year-old singer-songwriter Brynn Cartelli is back today with the release of her ethereal new single, “Gemini,” which arrives just in time for Gemini Season. Sonically inspired by Stevie Nicks and Florence Welch, the dreamy pop song explores the dual nature personality associated with the star sign. Listen to it HERE on all streaming platforms. The accompanying music video was also released today, marking Brynn’s directorial debut. Captured in upstate New York, the visual plays in the Gemini Twins zodiac sign. Watch it HERE.
About the new version, Cartelli said, “The song ‘Gemini’ started out as a joke. I thought it would be funny to play into the dual nature stereotype of a song; then I went to London and I finished it.” She explained: “I wanted to draw on the inspirations of the women who inspired me since I was young, like Stevie Nicks and Florence Welch, but in my own pop sphere. I’m so excited to see how much” Gemini” is unlike any of the songs on my first project. [Based on a True Story]. I’m leaning into the witchy energy of the East Coast and scaring Gemini everywhere, which you can also see in the video clip I made myself.”
Displaying a range of skyscrapers, an undeniable presence and an eloquent songcraft, Cartelli tells relatable stories without filter, but with great finesse and fire, as evidenced by his stellar debut EP of 2021, Based on a true story. The EP premiered with “Long Way Home,” which was co-written by Cartelli and Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift, Kylie Minogue) and garnered praise when People named Brynn one of their “emerging artists to watch.” Cartelli also delivered a moving performance of fan-favorite track “If I Could” — co-written with Ben Abraham (Demi Lovato, Sara Bareilles) — on The Kelly Clarkson Show. The song has amassed over 15 million global streams to date.
At 15, Cartelli’s voice captivated viewers nationwide when she won Season 14 of NBC’s The Voice (on Team Kelly) and became the youngest champion in the show’s history. She showcased her signature style on the single “Last Night’s Mascara”, which racked up over 16 million streams worldwide. Along the way, she supported Kelly Clarkson and Maroon 5 on tour. Along the way, she earned a People’s Choice Award nomination and captivated audiences with stunning performances on the TODAY Show, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and more.
