Biography

Artist bio: 

In an era when genre blending/ bending has become the norm and the computer has become musician's best friend, it's seems as if the stage has been set for an artist like Brittany Campbell to emerge. An award winning singer-songwriter/producer and visual artist, Brittany combines elements of RnB, Pop,Edm, Reggae and Alt Rock while serving fantastical imagery by way of  MUSIC VIDEO!   Brittany got her start in 2011 after her return to NYC. She met with producer/engineer, Rich Keller (DMX, Danity Kane,  Mariah Carey) who helped navigate her through her first EP (NERD).

“I was constantly in the club..It was where I felt free. I would LIVE so hard that one day a drag queen that was hosting a party called me up on stage and dared me to sing..I told him I had original music...but really I had the one song .."Nerd"..I happened to have the track on a CD that Rich had given the night before ,”recalls Brittany. “After I sang, everyone kind of ran up to the stage..I was booked to perform at an even bigger club the next night...it was pretty crazy..Thats what started the whole trip."  Nerd would eventually chart at #7 in Paper Magizine's club playlist and make top 10 on Next magazine's Summer Playlist alongside artists such as Rihanna and Robyn. 

Brittany released  her first full length album (Black Summer) late 2012. After 2 years of touring, international collaborations (DJ Okawari, Gomi) and songwriting,  she followed up with (Heroes) in 2014. That record not only spawned a fair amount of press attention (Hof Magazine exclaming that  “She’s one of those next-level talents who has her hands in everything. And as you can see, she’s fly as hell too. ” and MTVU stating that Brittany "... combines a transcendent voice with a uniquely distinct visual style and attitude...One of our favorite discoveries from the last couple of years." It also was the first record to have airplay on over 200 stations nationwide making top 10 lists on numerous programs.

“Its funny that Heroes hit the radio. It was a very personal project...I just made what liked...it's way more chilled out than my other records. My production had definitely matured in big way and I put extra special care into my use of harmony and vocal arrangement....but the best part of Heroes is the collaborations. Some the illest talent in NYC are on that record...and thats forever."  Evidence of the artist's forward progression—both creatively and commercially—is on full display all over the album. Songs such as Sexy Darth Vader (featuring Redddaz) showcase a darker trap like flow that would intoxicate any listener. The album's title track epitomizes Brittany's talent for fusing together hard beats with oozing syth lines to raise up breathtaking sexy vocals. The rest of the album hails to her Jamaican roots as well as her love of 60's garage rock with her song "Skate". 

Brittany continues to push the envelope visually, now branching into animation which can be seen in her music video for Heroes. This got the attention of super model, Shaun Ross, who praised it for the protagonist's uncanny resemblance to himself. It also has been featured at several animation festivals.
