Brittany Jean is a singer/songwriter in the Pacific Northwest, currently living in the tiny, apple town of Brewster, WA. Brittany grew up in West Chicago, IL, and her interest in music started at a very young age--piano and voice lessons, children's choirs, youth group bands, youth theater.... And she started seriously writing songs when she was sixteen. Discovering she liked singing her own stories instead of the ones written for characters in plays, she found a passion in songwriting.
Brittany Jean stepped into a recording studio for the first time in October 2012, and she has since released two albums. Whispered Stories was released in September 2013, and it was completed with the help of fans—making her debut album even more special. Brittany’s second album (Leavin' Home) was released in March 2016. From songs about small-town days to songs about trying to find wild horses, there is a more acoustic feel to this album than the first, and Brittany hopes fans love the difference as much as she does!
Leavin' Home includes Brittany Jean’s song “Wildfire", which was written in response to her first-hand experience during the Carlton Complex Wildfires of 2014 (the largest wildfires in Washington State history at the time—a record broken the following year). This song was a centerpiece for the fundraising effort of the Carlton Complex Longterm Recovery Group, whose purpose is to rebuild the 300+ homes that were lost that summer of 2014.
Leavin' Home also includes Brittany Jean's song "Adventure", which was nominated for the Independent Music Awards in the category for Bluegrass Song of the Year in 2016!
Performances ranging from farmers' market sidewalks and outdoor cafes to concerts in theaters and resorts, she's sung all over Washington. In 2016, Brittany started branching out-of-state to sing further from home in Nashville, TN, and Orange Beach, AL, and since then she’s been to Illinois, Maryland, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, and Virginia. Here's a list of all the places she's played!
“I've met so many wonderful people as I've traveled, and meeting you is one of my favorite things!”
Though far from the central hub of country music, Brittany has been able to travel back and forth to Nashville, TN, to record in a city and studio she loves. Recording days at Hilltop are some of Brittany's favorite days (ever), and she's had the opportunity to work with some of the best musicians in the business, such as Jeff King, Joel Key, Danny Parks, Scotty Sanders, Aubrey Haynie... The list goes on.
Brittany Jean’s third album (Wander With Me) is scheduled for release in January 2018, and it is going to be her best album yet!
"I've been pouring my heart into the writing process, and my time in the studio is spent carefully to get every note as beautiful as we possibly can--I can't wait for you to hear it!"
