Childhood and youth
Edie Brickell’s birthplace is Texas – he was brought up in the family of Paul and his wife, Larry. Edie was not bored while growing up – he has a sister Laura Strain. The two have always been in a close relationship. Having enrolled at a college, the celebrity dropped out of it for the sake of concentrating more on her music career.
Edie Brickell & New Bohemians
While studying at a high school, Brickell had a close pal who introduced her to the world of music. So, once in 1985 that girl, a member of the music collective named New Bohemians, offered Edie perform with the band at a local pub. The latter liked that friendly musical atmosphere and joined the band to serve there as a lead singer and write lyrics. Shortly after, the group concluded a contract with a recording company, and it was renamed to Edie Brickell & New Bohemians. 1988 brought the musicians their first collection entitled ‘Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars.’ It happened to be an enormous success – and fans especially liked its track ‘What I Am.’ Two years later, the group dropped one more album under the name ‘Ghost of a Dog’, including the song ‘Black And Blue.’
The next group’s biggest hit was published only in 2006 – it was the album ‘Stranger Things.’
In 1989 fans could see Edie Brickell acting in the picture Born on the Fourth of July – she portrayed there a folk musician and sang ‘A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall’ by Bob Dylan as the movie’s soundtrack. In 1990 Brickell performed with the track ‘Walk on the Wild Side’ starring in the movie Flashback.
Speaking about her solo projects, in 1994 she dropped her first collection ‘Picture Perfect Morning.’ In 2003 she added the album ‘Volcano’ to the list of her works. 1992 brought Brickell a collaboration with Bob Wiseman. However, their singles have not been released as the recording firm denied to produce it.
In 2010 the singer joined the music collective The Gaddabouts. It consisted of 8 members, apart from her. The following year, Edie created one of her best songs ‘The Meaning of Life’ which advanced to the top of the Billboard chart.

Edie and Steven contributed to the play named Bright Star.
In 2017 they were seen among actors of the picture The American Epic Sessions.
