We’ve got a PMJ debut today, and wow- this one is impressive! Meet Brielle Von Hugel – a 21 year old singer / songwriter from Staten Island, NY with an incredibly strong, bluesy voice. Watch her transform Selena Gomez’ “Same Old Love” into an entirely new song in this Postmodern Jukebox New Orleans- Dirge- Style remake:

It should be no surprise that Brielle comes from a musical family; her dad sang doo wop with The Duprees. Like many singers her age, Brielle spent a lot of time practicing Christina Aguilera riffs as a kid, but unlike her peers, she was also heavily influenced by the greats from earlier eras – Etta James in particular. Her debut performance of “Same Old Love” shows that she has a rare gift as a vocalist to combine old and new and still connect with an audience.
