I can’t tell you how excited I was to be personally introduced to the music of Brittany Campbell. Such a dope girl. I mean, just crazy amounts of talent. Here’s her inspiring story…

Brittany Campbell is a Singer/Songwriter/Producer and Visual Artist from New York City (yeeee!). Born and raised in Brooklyn, Brittany got her start as a child performing in several operas at the Metropolitan Opera and on Broadway. She discovered a love of pop music in her high school years. In 2011, she was taken under the wing of award-winning engineer Rich Keller (Ruff Riders, Mariah Carey) and began working on her first project “NERD, which was the product of both Brittany’s love of pop and her introduction into New York nightlife. The club scene changed how she perceived music all together. Her music became more playful and bigger. Her influences derived from producers such as Red One, Dog Chow and artists who dominated the club plays such as Robyn, Lady Gaga and Kelis. “NERD” was self-released in 2011 and ranked on the regional club charts at a whopping #7.

‘Black Summer’ would be her next project. At this point Brittany was more or less homeless and would cease the opportunity to record wherever her friends would let her crash. She was no longer working with a musical partner at felt as if she was starting all over again. Heartbroken, beyond music, Brittany began exploring other other outlets outside of music to express herself. She had always drawn and even began to paint in college. It was the summer of 2012 and she wanted to be heard, make some kind of wave. She began to graffiti. She first started with little stickers and worked her way up to big pieces, then walls. Her art caught some attention and she began doing some commission work. While this was happening, she completed her first full-length album ‘Black Summer’.

‘Heroes’ is her third self-released project and sophomore album.  She produced the album in its entirety. It’s filled with guitars, strings, live drums, and huge harmonies of Beyoncé proportions. Inspired by the hipstery sounds of New York Trap, Pop, RnB and Reggae, it’s a fantastic listen all around. We’ve got some cuts off the record for you below…
