Biography

Brittini is a beautiful, young Country Music singer/songwriter who was born with music in her soul. She began singing when she was 2 years old, and by age 8 she was singing intricate harmonies. By the time she was 12, as a member of a mother-daughter duo, a plan had been mapped out to pursue a career in Country Music. Over the next few years the duo opened for superstar country acts including Lonestar, Sammy Kershaw, Billy Ray Cyrus, Kenny Rogers and one of their most memorable performances was as the opener for Diamond Rio at the renowned Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville. They also received airplay for several of their original songs on country radio stations throughout the west coast.

Brittini moved to Nashville in late 1998 and attended Belmont University, widely known for their prestigious music performance and music business programs, with fellow schoolmates Josh Turner, Sarah Buxton and Lauren Lucas. Brittini began doing many solo projects and performances during her time at Belmont and was selected to perform in Belmont’s most prestigious showcase, “The Best of the Best” with alum Brad Paisley, held at the Ryman Auditorium.

Providing her vocal talents for demos in Nashville, Brittini’s voice can be heard up and down Music Row. She is also an established songwriter and has written with many of the greatest songwriters in town. Brittini is a regular in the live music scene, had her own show for 2 years at Douglas Corner called “Black Mondays” and has performed at all the popular local venues including the world-renowned Bluebird Café. Brittini plays the mandolin, which has always been her favorite instrument, but she also plays a variety of other instruments including the piano, flute and guitar.

Brittini signed a record deal with Slugfest Records Nashville/ADA Warner Music Group in late 2007 and was cast in the new unscripted Television Show “BREAKOUT-the road to stardom” being developed for summer 2009. Brittini’s debut record, “Good Happens” was released September 9, 2008 and in true form, she immediately set out on her first radio tour in an alternative fuel vehicle to promote the release of her first single “Good Happens”. “With all the global issues we’re dealing with and the negativity in the news everyday, I wanted to put out an upbeat record so that I could get out there and help people focus on the good that happens all around us everyday…its there, but sometimes we just don’t see it. I want my music to help make people smile, even if it’s only for the few minutes that they’re listening to my songs. I think that being positive and hopeful is what helps us get through hard times.”

Brittini landed a song in the new movie and soundtrack “New in Town” starring Rene Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr. (in Theaters January 30, 2009) and her first single and music video for “Good Happens” is getting rave reviews. In fact, the video landed on GAC's Top 20 Countdown and is in full rotation on GAC and CMT Pure!

Brittini hopes to be a positive role model and wants to be a good example for her generation; to encourage her peers to follow their dreams no matter how big or impossible they seem. Brittini is a “different” kind of Artist who adds a new element to Country Music; one that blends “hope-filled” songs with her vocal range and mixed influences- ranging from Patsy Cline to Michael McDonald- all together.

“I want my music to speak to others the way the music I love speaks to me. It can bring light to your darkest day; hope when you feel lost. Music moves us, and can move us to make a difference. That’s what I hope to do and inspire others to do as well.”

Her debut record “Good Happens" on Slugfest Records /Nashville is available now. One listen is all it takes. Come along for this exciting ride!
