Genevieve Louise Brusie is a singer-songwriter from Boston. Playing the piano since age 5, she fell in love with music and performing through Broadway musicals. She performed in numerous high school and summer shows, including the role of “Leading Player” in Pippin. She also loves dramatic theater, which she explored through trying her hand at directing a short play entitled “The Other Room”, about a boy with autism. Her appreciation for the power of the arts exploded one day following a performance of that play, when several people from the audience sought her out to relate their experiences with autism, and how much the performance had moved them.
She began writing her own music and lyrics at age 12, initially keeping these in a very private notebook. She later began performing these at school coffee houses. In 2017, with the help of her summer musicals director Tristan Bouchard, she wrote, recorded, and produced her debut EP entitled “Seventeen”, available on Soundcloud, Spotify, and iTunes. She’s gone on to write and record over 20 songs, and still counting, and performs her original music regularly throughout the Boston area. She’s thinking about getting another notebook.
Her songs, written for piano, acoustic guitar, and ukelele, tell the stories of relationships, self-discovery, and growing up. Her favorite artists and influences include Sara Bareilles, Dody Clark, Ed Sheeran, “and a little bit of everything”. When she’s not in the music room, you’d probably find her listening to music, sailing, or watching “Sherlock” cuddled with her dog “Oreo”.
