Fans Running Away With Bailey’s “Circus”

April 11, 2011

She gets by with or without a little help from her friends.

But there’s no doubt aspiring Bermudian pop singer Bailey Outerbridge’s debut track “Circus” enjoys a remarkable degree of professional polish thanks to input from some entertainment industry veterans who are among the teen music prodigy’s biggest boosters.

Bailey, just 15 when she recorded “Circus” last summer and shot the accompanying music video at locations around Bermuda, was able to enlist the support of legendary Bermudian drummer Andy Newmark while working on the track — one of more than 30 songs the high school student has either written or co-written.

Aside from Mr. Newmark, guitarist Anthony Krizan — who played with rockers the Spin Doctors — and bass player Felix Krish, who has worked with such marquee acts as Jimmy Page, Alan Parsons and Bonnie Tyler, contributed their talents to “Circus.”

The video — recently uploaded to YouTube — is drawing  a large and appreciative new audience for the young singer.

 

“Circus” and a second professionally recorded song, “Drop Of Poison”, are currently being submitted to various American record labels. 

Bailey, the daughter of Andrew and Phoebe Outerbridge, grew up in the US but has spent all of her life ferrying back and forth between the East Coast and the island to spend time with her father’s Bermudian family.

Music has been part of Bailey’s life since her youngest years. At age four, it was evident she could not only sing the entire “Little Mermaid” score by memory (and on key) but she could also extemporaneously make up songs about her life.

Once she was cast as a Munchkin in the “Wizard of Oz” at age five, she was bitten by the performing bug and has been acting and singing ever since.

In her hometown of Princeton, New Jersey, Bailey sang with the Princeton Girl Choir, studied piano at Westminster Conservatory, performed in various regional and school theatrical productions, and at 13 was invited to sing a solo with the Princeton Symphony Orchestra.

While refining her musicianship and exploring and discovering her own musical style, Bailey also worked with jazz musician Keith Lesnick, and performed as a solo artist at some local venues. Currently completing her junior year at a prep school in Connecticut, Bailey continues to pursue her studies and hone her musical skills.

Her song “All A Blur” appears on the forthcoming “Ride The Wave 2″ charity double-CD, featuring contributions from a wide array of Bermudian performers including Troy Anthony,  Joy T. Barnum and Mishka.
