    Ernest Ernie & The Sincerities’ LP Sincerely Yours…Greatest Hits Vol. 1 is the real deal, a bona fide classic vintage of which we are unlikely to experience again in this lifetime. It captures everything the discerning listener loves about big bands, gospel, soul and rhythm & blues. It represents the new sound from the old school, and harkens to a time when musical expression truly mattered. Thanks to Ernest Ernie, it matters once again.

    "We have been fussin' and fightin' for far too long," cautions lead singer Brandi Thompson on "Bad Love." Recorded at Mighty Toad Studios in June, the tune offers a taste of bittersweet heartache amid the upbeat, head-bobbing, toe-tapping repertoire of Brandi & the Alexanders. With a sound nestled between old-school soul and west coast R&B, this 10-piece band is bringing back a classic style with songs about second chances, hard goodbyes and fresh starts.

    Fueled by personal experiences, the powerful, raw emotion with which Brandi wails and writes has been heating up venues across New York City since 2012. From fall of 2013 through the summer of 2014, the band held down a monthly residency at The Way Station, a small performance venue in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. There, they developed originals, instrumentals and dozens of eclectic covers, including TLC's "Waterfalls", The Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" and Allen Toussaint's "Mean Man" to name a few.

    Out of those sweaty, exuberant, packed-house nights, Brandi & the Alexanders built a distinct sound that led them from Brooklyn to venues like Pianos, Rockwood Music Hall and The Bitter End.
