Biography

There is no style of music that Brittany hasn't sung. She has sung in cover bands for the past eight years, which has required her to sing R&B, Jazz, Country, Rock and everything in between. That being said, it is hard to pinpoint her to one style because, simply put, she sounds like no one else. A fan once said, "Her voice is soothing, strong, and has a touch of "sand" but most of all, her voice is different." Her influences include Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, Sara Bareilles, Faith Hill, Whitney Houston, Sheryl Crow, and many others. She appreciates all styles of music, but she tries to copy no one. Originality is important, and that's what you will find with Brittany. The songs she sings are musically creative, poetic, but with enough pop-value to please the masses. Brittany's sound is truly fresh.

Lyrics

Missing Me

Written By: Susan Shewbridge

ON THE TRUNK OF MY CAR
WE SAW A SHOOTING STAR
AND I THOUGHT THAT GOD
WAS TALKING
YOU WERE ALL THE MAN
I'D NEVER HAD
AND ALL I'D EVER WANTED
THEN ALL I EVER WANTED
COST ME ALL I HAD

IF I'D NEVER MET YOU
I WOULD STILL BE A GIRL TOO
HOPEFUL, FEARLESS
A GIRL WHO STILL HAD IT ALL TO LOSE
IF I'D NEVER LET YOU
SHOW ME WHAT I WAS MISSING
I WOULDN'T BE MISSING....ME

YOUR LINES SO REHEARSED
DIDN'T GET ME AT FIRST
BUT SOON I WAS YOUR CAPTIVE
I BECAME WHAT YOU NEED
HOW COULD YOU LET ME BLEED
I NEVER QUESTIONED YOUR
MOTIVES
I REMEMBER WHEN YOU TOLD ME
YOU WOULD BE MY ONE AND ONLY

IF I'D NEVER MET YOU
I WOULD STILL BE A GIRL TOO
HOPEFUL, FEARLESS,
A GIRL WHO
STILL HAD IT ALL TO LOSE
IF I'D NEVER LET YOU
SHOW ME WHAT I WAS MISSING
I WOULDN'T BE MISSING...ME

AND NOW I'M ALONE
AND I WISH I WAS BACK HOME
AND I WISH THAT DIDN'T MAKE ME
SOUND CRAZY
I'D GIVE ANYTHING
TO BE BACK IN A DREAM
WITH PRINCE CHARMING

IF I'D NEVER MET YOU
I WOULD STILL BE A GIRL TOO
HOPEFUL, FEARLESS
A GIRL WHO
STILL HAD IT ALL TO LOSE

When Love Finds You

Written By: Susan Shewbridge

A LOOK TELLS IT ALL
I CAN RECALL
THE FIRST TIME I SAW IT IN YOUR EYES
I WAS TAKEN OFF GUARD
YOU TOOK THE LID OFF MY HEART
AND I HAD NOWHERE TO HIDE

I THINK I WAS SAYING SOMETHING
'BOUT BEING CONTENT
I COULD SEE YOU KNEW IT WAS A LIE

WHEN LOVE FINDS YOUR SOUL
YOU LOSE ALL CONTROL
YOU CAN'T SAY WHAT YOU WILL OR WILL NOT DO
TWO STARS FALL FROM THE SKY
REACH HEAVEN AT THE SAME TIME
WHEN LOVE FINDS YOU
WHEN LOVE FINDS YOU

I TRIED FOR AN INSTANT
TO SEEM SLIGHTLY DISTANT
THINKIN' MAYBE YOU'D DOUBT WHAT
YOU SAW
IT FELT LIKE DEFEAT
BUT I COULD NOT RETREAT
I GUESS I REALLY WANTED TO GET
CAUGHT
I'M JUST A WOMAN
YOU'RE JUST A MAN
TO NEED AND BE NEEDED
AIN'T SO BAD

WHEN LOVE FINDS YOUR SOUL
YOU LOSE ALL CONTROL
YOU CAN'T SAY WHAT YOU WILL OR WILL NOT DO
TWO STARS FALL FROM THE SKY
REACH HEAVEN AT THE SAME TIME
WHEN LOVE FINDS YOU
WHEN LOVE FINDS YOU

LEAN ON MY SHOULDER
GO AHEAD GET OLDER
NOTHIN' CAN CHANGE
THE YOU I SEE

TWO STARS FALL FROM THE SKY
REACH HEAVEN AT THE SAME TIME
WHEN LOVE FINDS YOU
WHEN LOVE FINDS YOU

I Waited

Written By: Susan Shewbridge

I WAITED
BUT YOU DID NOT CALL
I FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY
HOW WASTED THESE FEELINGS ARE
YOU ARE NOTHING TO ME(YET EVERYTHING)
I AM NOTHING TO YOU

CURSE THAT GLIMMER OF HOPE THAT RISES
CURSE THAT FEELING THAT SAYS I'M DUE
'CAUSE I SEE NOTHING BUT EMPTY PAGES
IN THIS BOOK OF ME AND YOU
DAMN THIS LINGERING ACHE TO TOUCH YOU
DAMN THE WAY I HAVE PLAYED THE FOOL
I HAVE NOTHING TO GO ON HERE
SO WHY DO I GO ON
LOVING YOU
LOVING YOU

I DROVE ALONE
TO LAFFERTY PARK
SONOMA
STILL HAS AHOLD OF MY HEART
PERHAPS SHE'LL MEND ME TODAY
AS ALWAYS
PERHAPS SHE'LL BE THE ONE TO SAY
IT'S TIME TO GO AWAY

CURSE THAT GLIMMER OF HOPE THAT RISES
CURSE THAT FEELING THAT SAYS I'M DUE
'CAUSE I SEE NOTHING BUT EMPTY PAGES
IN THIS BOOK OF ME AND YOU
DAMN THIS LINGERING ACHE TO TOUCH YOU
DAMN THE WAY I HAVE PLAYED THE FOOL
I HAVE NOTHING TO GO ON HERE
SO WHY DO I GO ON
LOVING YOU
LOVING YOU

TIME AND TIME AGAIN
THE WAVES HAVE PUSHED ME TO
THE GROUND
TIME AND TIME AGAIN
THIS FACE HAS BEEN A PAINTED
CLOWN
I'M LIKE A DRUNK WHO FINALLY
KNOWS IT'S TIME TO LAY THIS
BOTTLE DOWN
OR IT'LL LAY ME IN THE GROUND

I WAITED
AND YOU FINALLY CALLED
SOMETHING'S FADED
THIS MIGHT NOT BE SO HARD
AFTER ALL
