Brittney Grabill is a singer/songwriter with a full-throttle alto voice that fills melodies with taut and trembling emotion. Currently living in Los Angeles while writing for a new album and performing from her latest pop/folk album, Candy.

Biography

Here is a twilight voice, like liquid silk from a heart-filled Alberta girl.  Brittney Grabill is a pop-folk singer/songwriter influenced by artists such as; Adele, Sara Bareilles and Corinne Bailey Rae.


This young woman is finding her genre and voice in an ambitious pursuit to taking her music to a higher level. She is currently building her fan base across Canada and western USA, and raising goose bumps as a solo sensation with her songs that just won't sit still.

Neither for that matter, will her career. Brittney just released her half crowd funded, half Rawlco Radio funded first full length album, Candy. The launch of which included an online scavenger hunt, with the winner receiving a copy of the album, custom candy and a handwritten lyric book. This was followed by a digital tour, releasing live performance videos for the album songs.  

Candy is currently available on iTunes. Other recent career highlights include: performing at the Winnipeg Folk Festival 2014, performing at Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto, ON for GoodLife Fitness, and being a finalist in the Calgary Folk Festival songwriting competition. The media has been paying attention too with interviews on Alberta Primetime and Shaw TV.

Brittney has donated all of her earnings through iTunes from her original Autumn`s Song, from her debut EP Dreams Are All You Know, to the Stollery Children`s Hospital where she had major back surgery at the age of thirteen. She went back to the hospital in May with Alberta Primetime to do an interview, raise awareness and sing to some of the kids who were visiting at that time. 

Brittney's favourite part of being a musician is hitting the road to perform and meeting other industry professionals. In recent times, however, she has been expanding her reach on an international level. Brittney started in Phoenix, AZ and ended in Pasadena, CA on a small solo tour. This opportunity presented itself when Brittney sent out her music to a large number of venues to build her fan base and resume.

You can be assured that Brittney Grabill will give it her all every time she gets up on stage. Her full set of original songs and her twists on many cover songs is sure to entertain. It's all in the voice, a full-throttle alto that fills melodies with taut and trembling emotion. 


Lyrics

Candy

Written By: Brittney Grabil,Scott Greene

Summer time round the corner got me hoppin’ to the candy shop

Lookin’ for a boy to buy me an ice cream from out on the dock

Poka dot dress your cornered to be lockin’ your eyes on me

Once you have a taste there is no return guaranteed

Pardon me if I seem to be rubbin’ up on him

It makes me happy, The jewels that he hands me, Tasty new ring pop

His Jelly Belly, Sour fizzy heart

I crave for him when we are apart

I can’t control all my kisses

He’s so sweet should I be suspicious

Stumble and I loose my grip ‘cause his lips are like sugarcane

Well I’m learnin’ pretty quick just how a two timer plays the game

Mama say that I warned her and he ain’t good company

I kinda like the chase and he promised that we’re meant to be

Pardon me if I seem to be rubbin’ up on him

It makes me happy, The jewels that he hands me, Tasty new ring pop

His Jelly Belly, Sour fizzy heart

I crave for him when we are apart

I can’t control all my kisses

He’s so sweet should I be suspicious

His Jelly Belly, Sour fizzy heart

I can’t let him get very far

I can’t control all my kisses

I do predict, I’ll be his miss’s

OH...

Pardon me if I seem to be rubbin’ up on him

It makes me happy, the candy, the taffy,

What would I do without

His Jelly Belly, Sour fizzy heart

I crave for him when we are apart

I can’t control all my kisses

He’s so sweet should I be suspicious

His Jelly Belly, Sour fizzy heart

I can’t let him get very far

I can’t control all my kisses

I do predict, I’ll be his miss’s

Autumn's Song

Written By: Brittney Grabill

Autumn's Song

I have been so lost, Tracks I never thought Iʼd cross

Now your here right beside me, Godʼs angel here sent to guide me

I got more than what Iʼd ever thought

I have been through a heartache or two, Picking up whatever is left behind

No more of being left here part way, As people we learn the hard way

When in doubt, I look at you

And this... Moment here, I got you in my arms

You kiss... Me on the nose because you missed my lips

Itʼs this

You make me learn so much more, You were what Iʼve been here waiting for
Itʼs not what you can say, That takes my breathe away

Itʼs a brand new feeling, a brand new start

And this... Moment here, I got you in my arms

You kiss... Me on the nose because you missed my lips

Itʼs this

Free

Written By: Brittney Grabill

Tides in my head bound my songs to you

Visualize the night will soon come true

Givin’ up is not something that I’d do

Serve my crave for what justice can prove

A look at my face and everybody knows

A change in my thoughts you reap just what you sew

Hear the words as I fall and loose control

Remember where you came from

I’ll serve life what I brought

I’ll pass down what I’ve been taught

For you, for me, we are free

For you, for me, we are free

Look upon the sun and what the world can do

Finesse and depth describe a taste of truth

Do you ever wonder what’s in it for you

Worry is the start of solitude

Goodbye

Written By: Brittney Grabill,Scott Greene

I’ll be that one, you can call anytime you want

Distance may take us apart, I’ll be missing you with all of my heart

What you found in her, I can tell that its love from your voice,

You don’t have a choice

Celebrate the feeling, don’t run away

Next time you call I’m sure I’ll be ok

Goodbye my love, Goodbye my best friend

Goodbye my deepest secret now I don’t have to pretend

And I’ll be ok, every wound has a chance to mend

Goodbye to our time together has come to an end

You remember that song, we sang back in high school, 2

become 1

It’s nice to hear your laugh, this conversation isn’t easy to have

Oh, Since you have to go now, I heard her say your name

This is what’s taken me too long to say

Goodbye my love, Goodbye my best friend

Goodbye my deepest secret now I don’t have to pretend

And I’ll be ok, every wound has a chance to mend

Goodbye to our time together has come to an end

Goodbye my, goodbye goodbye my love

I never wanted to have to say goodbye, you’re all I know

That’s why I have to try

One last thing before you hear me say goodbye

I need your love like I never needed love ...before

Goodnight

Written By: Brittney Grabill

On a sick day like today

Who would’a thought You’da come my way

Bring your energy in that face

You’re here

I can’t help but it cuddle up

What was that you put in that cup

Is that for me, oh, it’s tea

I shut my eyes momentarily

Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight

Caught you starrin’, lookin’ my way

I said “hey,” you laugh and say

“I miss your voice,” well it wasn’t my choice

To loose it my dear

I cant sleep, I cant dream

You’re the distraction so it seems

I have good company and I’m thankful

‘Cause you’re here with me

Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight

In the morning Im feeling ok

Where’d he go, I thought he’d stay

Then I hear footsteps coming near

Then he walked out to ask my dear

How was your night Goodnight Goodnight

Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight

I`m Going For It

Written By: Brittney Grabill,Scott Greene

A piano that never gets played, A pair of wings that never felt the wind

Lust that never fell into love, A dream that never left within

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha ha

Persistence is what brings me here, I know just what I want

Luck of the draw maybe what you saw, I assure you that its not

You may think I’m a girl who’s got a plan, I’m red handed, I’m caught

Unseen to most but I know that I’m close

Dreams are all you know

I’m goin, I’m going for it

I’m goin, I’m going for it

I’m goin, I’m going for it

La la la la la

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha ha.

A piano that never gets played (It wants it bad)

A pair of wings that never felt the wind (It could have had)

Lust that never fell into love,

A dream that never left within

Our minds have acres of diamonds to find but life gets carried away

Bridge my head to my heart, make my way, this I got to say

I’m goin, I’m going for it

I’m goin, I’m going for it

I’m goin, I’m going for it

La la la la la

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha ha.

I’m going, I’m going for it.

I’ve Moved On

Written By: Brittney Grabill

So you think I am persistent, Hard headed, you’re not wrong

You know I’d go the distance if you choose to love me for long

I’ve been blinded by your love, oh darlin’ don’t get me wrong

When I say I’ve moved on

I knew that you were danger, Stupid cupid is the same

So baby just remember these words when you hear my name

The moment doesn’t last in time for you to see it through

Yes indeed, I’ve moved on

Time magnifies all of your smooth disguise's

I’ve got some place to run, I said I’ve moved on

Ladies keep in mind that I thought he was the one

I hadn’t seen the signs of all of his own fun

I was ruined when I found out he was hiding someone

She and I’ve moved on

-

Time magnifies all of your smooth disguise's

I’ve got nowhere to run, I’ve been stuck for too long

Now that I’m a villion of mankind you see

In the city that I live in I found my destiny

To begin a move for women who are just like me

Oh please I’ve moved on

I’ll take a stand and walk on by

No more wasting all my time

I’ve moved on

Lipstick

Written By: Brittney Grabill

One for my sugar and one for the night

Ain’t I about to find Mr. Right

Pop a bit of perfume – my dress fit on tight

Oh I got a rouge lipstick for tonight

Ha Ha I got a bit of a temper,

Want you so bad, I’m gonna do whatever

Na Na Not a chance to hide in the crowd,

Grab you for a swing, spin me round and around

La La la Lipstick on your collar, better clean you up

Before Connie starts to holler

Ta ta Tie in place and hat on just right

No one will know where we’ve been tonight

One for my sugar and one for the night

Ain’t I about to find Mr. Right

Pop a bit of perfume – my dress fit on tight

Oh I got a rouge lipstick for tonight

Da Da Dancin’ got us carrying the beat

We all like to move and know exactly where to meet

Ka Ka Kind of you to grab my hand on chance

Hoping I would like to teach you how to dance

B B Back it up, Bring it my way

Stop when you hear the announcer say

“Sh Sh Sugar shimmy, Light it up so sweet

Let me feel the beat underneath your feet”

One for my sugar and one for the night

Ain’t I about to find Mr. Right

Pop a bit of perfume – my dress fit on tight

Oh I got a rouge lipstick for tonight

One for my sugar and one for the night

Ain’t I about to find Mr. Right

Pop a bit of perfume – my dress fit on tight

Oh I got a rouge lipstick for tonight

Stay

Written By: Brittney Grabill

Who knows what we’ve been up to for all of these years

Who knows where all I’ve been gone to face all my fears

During that time I made up my mind about you

Wait, before you escape, I’ve done something wrong

I haven’t seen you for so long

I can tell something’s wrong

Here come into my arms

I’ll write down this song

Been away for too long

No matter what we stay...

Stay

I can’t count all the times I’ve fallen for you

Why did I doubt myself when I knew you wanted this too

Now’s our time to take place, Align ourselves with fate

We can bring faith and escape into a place

Oh, Come with me my love

I haven’t seen you for so long

I can tell something’s wrong

Here come into my arms

I’ll write down this song

Been away for too long

No matter what we stay...

Stay

I choose

Your love – no danger

Your warmth – no stranger

Can you carry me through

I haven’t seen you for so long

I can tell something’s wrong

Here come into my arms

I’ll write down this song

Been away for too long

No matter what we stay...

Stay

(Daddy Says) You Better Run

Written By: Brittney Grabill

Uh Oh, You better run, better run, from what you have done

See me there, tease me, How do you know I ainʼt the one

You better run..

Daddyʼd always say if a boy ever looks your way,

Heʼd bring a gun to school that day, thatʼs what heʼd say

Heʼd make the boys cry, I never knew of such a guy to get past his way,

Until that day

Uh Oh, You better run, better run, from what you have done

See me there, tease me, How do you know I ainʼt the one

You better run..

You see, I never wanted what we used to be,

You know to flaunt it there in front of me

How am I supposed to breathe at fourteen, I knew where my life was headed too,

Never really involving you, But who canʼt dream

Uh Oh, You better run, better run, from what you have done

See me there, tease me, How do you know I ainʼt the one

You better run..

Oh yeah.

Uh Oh, You better run, better run, from what you have done

See me there, tease me, How do you know I ainʼt the one

You better run..

Look what you’ve done...

Boom Betty Betty

Here’s a real big F--- you, With a smile on your face, your so damn cold

You got a lot of ranting to do, Those letters you trace your name in bold

What’s your explanation? Like you might finish, this race is old

But forgetting about something, are’nt ya? When your dreams are all you know

There goes Boom Betty Betty

It’s time to go and get it

Your hearts wrapped in it,

You see there’s Boom Betty Betty

She's hard working and ready

It’s time, grab your money

Go Boom Betty Betty yeah.

Betty’s got a lot of ranting to do, Her name was warn down, Struck by you

Just give her what she proved, She was young, and Stubborn like you

Something turned her back around, She's not cutting corners, she's getting out

Well it’s show time, Grab you case, Breathe, Relax, Its time to make your place

There goes Boom Betty Betty

It’s time to go and get it

Your hearts wrapped in it,

You see there’s Boom Betty Betty

She's hard working and ready

It’s time, grab your money

Go Boom Betty Betty yeah.

La da da da da

Bridge:

There goes Boom Betty Betty, She's not sure if she's ready

Her legs ain’t so steady,

Her name is Boom Betty Betty, She's a crazy little lady

Its time to play it baby

There goes Boom Betty Betty

It’s time to go and get it

Your hearts wrapped in it,

You see there’s Boom Betty Betty

She's hard working and ready

It’s time, grab your money

Go Boom Betty Betty yeah.

it’s true

That’s her cue

Go Boom Betty Betty

I Like You

Written By: Brittney Grabill

I heard this story, It tried to warn me

But instead, I shot for the moon

And now I know this, After our first kiss

I can tell you want me too

Do you mind if I stay here

And whisper in your ear... I like you

I got a little time to play with you, Everyday I do

I feel a couple of rhymes I wanna sing to you, Here’s to you

Oh yeah.

It’s laid out on the table, so If your able,

To sing along, I’m feeling happy nothings wrong

I’m sure you’ll get this, Wont regret what we let this

Me and you thing, were feeling the song

Do you mind if I stay here

And whisper in your ear... I like you

I got a little time to play with you, Everyday I do

I feel a couple of rhymes I wanna sing to you, Here’s to you

Oh yeah.

I got a feeling that I want to be with you,

Seems like you like me too

I like you....

Live or Die

Written By: Brittney Grabill

I got a little something you may not want to deal with

But I got a little frustrated with you not settling in

Oh, I got this hyper active tongue when you need to be dealt with

Will you stop what you’re doing because you’re gunna want to hear this

Oh, I need something more from you, I know something you can do

Take me away from all the things that we know

This life can bring us doubt, more or less lets figure it out

But I need to do what I’m here to do, where’s that support from you

I got this thing called pride, a promise to live before I die

I want you by my side, Live or die

Ah ah ah...

You got this little bit of something Iʼm wrapped up in

While you know exactly what you do

You got this little grin, I canʼt stop looking in

While you go and say those things again

I got this thing called pride, a promise to live before I die

I want you by my side, Live or die

Ah ah ah...

Sometimes the truth is hard to bare, I wonʼt be looking back because

Iʼm not scared, Iʼll be prepared

I got this thing called pride, a promise to live before I die

I want you by my side,

I got no time to figure out what your speech was all about

So are you in or are you out?

I got this thing called pride, a promise to live before I die

I want you by my side, If today we.. What if today we died.. If today we died

Oh yeah.

I got this thing called pride, a promise to live before I die

I want you by my side, Live or die

Ah ah ah...
