You Came From The Light: The incomparable Bridget Barkan slays the fame-hungry vampires mightily on the inspiring anthem ‘F**k You Money’

As the burning fire inside her pulsating veins flowed over massively to perform her strikingly real music again as the world shutdown, Bridget Barkan tells us straight up how she feels about those who just greedily take whatever is given despite the soul-stealing consequences, with a stunning effort that will surely grab your attention mightily on ‘F**k You Money‘.

Bridget Barkan is a wonderfully talented New York-based and multi-hyphenate film and theatre actor, director, poet, activist, and indie RnB/soul singer-songwriter. She is also impressively a teaching artist at Carnegie Hall, working with incarcerated youth and young mothers.

Some have said she is like the secret child of Cindy Sherman and John Waters, raised by the ghost of Janis Joplin.” – Bridget Barkan

Her melodiously elegant yet powerful voice is toned so perfectly, as he slides gracefully into your willing speakers – she sings with such precision and breathtaking meaning – her style is ferociously independent – as she never forgets where she came from.

Her beloved late Father and Uncle taught her so well and she stands for the things that mean something – hard work and being true to yourself no matter what others sneakily offer you – as she refuses that blood money and going against anything that calls her morals into question. She was told when she moved to Hollywood that people would try and grab her valuable soul away so she created a character called Mr. 1985 New York – a combination of her Dad and Uncle –  and shows a fitting tribute here to their everlasting spirit and life-changing advice.

As a singer, she toured the world with pop glam band Scissor Sisters who opened for Lady Gaga, sung with Lily Allen, drag legend Joey Arias and many more.” – Bridget Barkan

F**k You Money‘ from the multi-talented and totally authentic New York-based singer, actress, director and that true all-round entertainer Bridget Barkan, is an monumentally remarkable effort that is one of those pure songs you can’t forget easily. This is the insightful lesson of being rather careful with your hard-earned money – as it is so easy to spend it on things that you don’t really need – or gaining it in ways which will have you avoiding the mirror for a while, as you are so ashamed of yourself.

Your trusty gut is your only guide to true self-awareness and that rare enlightenment, which this world class human has in abundance. This is the only way to be truly grounded after all and after listening to this tremendous track, you will probably feel that this is the elusive anthem, that we all needed to find in 2021.
