ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Welcome to the Afterglow is currently available as a download through Itunes, Rhapsody, Musicmatch, Napster and many of your fave sites. Thanks for your patience :) nb


Namoli "darling of the critics" Brennet's second release promises to intrigue and bedazzle you. Admittedly, Brennet's gender identity may not have solidified any in the past 12 months, but her songwriting skills continue to mature and shine on her latest release, 'Welcome to the Afterglow'(Dec. 2003). Transgendered artist Brennet merges folk and electronic influences with soaring vocals and poetic lyrics to create a startlingly honest self-portrait. The stark texture of tracks like 'Trying to Try' contrast with the techno-industrial production of 'Victoria's Secret' and 'Breathe', and the album's closing track, 'We Belong', carries a message of diversity and inclusion: "When the same old voices say/That we'd be better off running away/We belong/We belong anyway."

Namoli recently released an EP (Namoli B-B sides: Jan. 2004) and is currently recording her next CD, scheduled for release in June. Startlingly prolific and always poetic, Namoli continues to surprise and amuse audiences with her intelligence and humor. Her impassioned performances have garnered fans in San Francisco, Portland, Philadelphia and Estonia. (Note to Estonians: Due to technical considerations, Estonia unfortunately was excluded from the last tour but will be kept in mind for future bookings. Thank you for your patience.) Namoli Brennet: coming soon to an Eastern-Bloc coffee house near you.

"Brennet plays and sings with an intensity and intelligence that can't be ignored."

-Performing Songwriter Magazine

"Brennet serenades sweetly while challenging comfort zones of gender and beyond."

-Robin Renee, Philadelphia Gay News

A Fine Album
Amongst my favorites on this album are:
By The Riverside
Maybe I Was
Standing In The Light
Dylan Street
Emma Lynn
Green Light
and We Belong.

Overall one of her best albums.

Dylan Street is really a great song for listening to and getting lost in the singing, the lyrics and
the wonderful acoustic guitar playing.

The message behind We Belong is an important one
to anyone who has ever felt the sting of discrimination.

Emma Lynn sounds like a fine Irish folk tune.

Green Light is a fast paced song with a story and
definitely deserves a listen.


can't get enough !
I have the other Namoli Brennet cd, Boy in a Dress and this one is just as amazing ! What's offered up on Welcome to the Afterglow is truly a soulful gift for each and every person that get's to hear it. I love this cd ! Thanks Namoli ! Keep up the incredible work !

another great album!!!
This is my favorite of the three CDs currently available. The music is so well written and played, and Namolis voice is outstanding. This one is not to be missed.
