Laying R&B grooves under Jazz chords to support Pop sensibilities, Bridgette Anderson isn't merely a vocalist; she is a fierce performer with a purpose. Conscious of the stigma surrounding Pop music and the predominance of male musicians, when it comes to her original project B.A.B.E, Bridgette prefers to perform with Toronto's most sought after female multi-instrumentalists to create a new norm — prominent visibility of female musicians. Her voice has the classic seductiveness of a Las Vegas lounge singer, the raw emotional feel you’d expect from Etta James or Amy Winehouse, a tone described as a hybrid of Leona Lewis and Amel Larrieux, and vocabulary heavily influenced by the likes of Beyoncé Knowles and Christina Aguilera.
B.A.B.E has performed at various festivals and venues in the GTA and Southern Ontario. Some of their favourite performances have been at: Steam Whistle Brewery for the 104th Grey Cup, Toronto City Hall for #LiveFromCityHall & Music 311, Yonge & Dundas Square for Youth Day, Union Station for TD Union Summer, The Rivoli for Indie Week, Revival for Sessions X One Shot, Alleycatz for Uptown Soul, Mod Club, Bier Markt, Toronto Pride, Peel Pride, TD Downtown Oakville Jazz Festival, Canada's Largest Ribfest, Toronto Sessions, Sessions On The River, and the Special Olympics. B.A.B.E will be heading into the studio to record a full length album, STAGES, to be released in 2017.
B.A.B.E is a mixture of edgy, seductive energy that immediately connects with the audience. Add in a pinch of class, and a dash of attitude, and you’ve got one cool band. Definitely worth the listen!

Bridgette and her band B.A.B.E is one of the best up and coming bands out of Toronto. They have a very cool, funky sound; one of the most professional bands I’ve had the pleasure of working with. You guys were great!
