Brittany Ann (of Easton, PA) could sing before she could talk, or so says her mother. Growing up, when her father wasn’t serenading her and her sisters, she would sometimes pick up his guitar and teach herself some chords.
She eventually attended the Lehigh Valley Charter School for the Performing Arts in Bethlehem, PA with a concentration in vocal music. Around this same time, she became enamored with legendary song crafters like Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell and continued building on her growing musical prowess. Brittany began penning one heartfelt song after another, weaving the sophisticated folk tapestry that would come full circle in 2010 on The Good in That, her first full-length studio recording, a collaboration with Grammy-winning producer Glenn Barratt.
That recording process, which began in the summer of 2009 at Morningstar Studios in Spring House, PA, allowed Brittany’s songs to take full shape and evolve before her. With the help of some well-established local musicians and friends, she emerged from the experience with a collection of ten beautifully polished and eloquent tracks, which together peer into her widely imaginative, sagacious mind. The Good in That was released in the fall of 2010, and has since received much critical acclaim.
Now a 20-year-old Temple University junior, Brittany Ann has bloomed into one of the Northeast’s most inspiring, ambitious young songwriters, winning over listeners with her trademark ethereal melodies, intricate finger-picking, and "wise beyond her years" lyrics. She has a genuine and endearing stage presence, and a rare knack for connecting with her audiences. Brittany Ann is an artist who is rooted in the folk tradition but not necessarily bound by it, a refreshing and enchanting new voice with much, much more on the horizon. -Kevin Brosky
