I am a songwriter with a passion for music. I play guitar,bass,piano and I sing. I find music and songrwriting a great escape and enjoy experimenting with different sounds.

Biography

Growing up, I have always been interested in music. I have played a variety of instruments including: Violin,Cello,Guitar,Bass and piano.
I joined the school choir from a young age and performed many times.

I was about 12 years old when I started to write songs. It was a way of getting all of my feelings out of my head and into the world. As I got older, I gained more knowledge about songwriting and entered WAM Song of the year when I was 13.

I was so happy when I found out that I had gotten into the top five for my category!
I attended the awards night and was amazed at all the different artists and the atmosphere of having all of these creative people in one room! It was a really amazing experience.
Even though I didnt win, It gave me so much confidence in myself and my songwriting started to improve.

Angus and Julia Stone are my biggest influences. I love their unique acoustic sound and how they tell stories through their songs. I think their music is really beautifull.

I believe in being honest in my songs. So when I write, it comes from the heart. My most hidden feelings and thoughts come out in my songs and they really mean a lot to me.

When someone asks me what my songs are about, I say that it can be about anything they want. Because I think music means something different to everyone. And everyone relates to a song in a different way. And thats what I love about music. It all comes down to how you interpret it.

Lyrics

Sinking Ships

Written By: Brittany Freeman

You have pushed me further away,
I’ve tried to help in every way,
The loss is there buried deep,
Grief takes over in my sleep,
This is not who I remember,
So different from last November,

I’ve given it all, my heart at stake,
But all you do is take and take,
Your bringing me down like we’re two sinking ships,
And they still don’t hear the cries from my lips,

It never used to be this way,
Your bright colours faded grey,
The pain is there buried deep,
Grief takes over in my sleep,
This is not like last December,
This is not who I remember,

I’ve given it all, my heart at stake,
But all you do is take and take,
Your bringing me down like we’re two sinking ships,
And they still don’t hear the cries from my lips,

I’ve lived through your darkest days,
I have seen your broken ways,
Been putting you back together,
Picking up the pieces forever,

I’ve given it all, my heart at stake,
But all you do is take and take,
Your bringing me down like we’re two sinking ships,
And they still don’t hear the cries from my lips,
