One major objective in music is to reach the heart. With such
relatable and soul-inspired lyrics, that’s exactly what Brittanie’s
music does. Through a variety of major influences spanning from
artists such as the legendary Nina Simone to the soul stirring Adele,
singer/ songwriter/composer Brittanie Thomas brings an organic,
soulful, and refreshing sound to today’s music.
Raised in a musical family with parents who are both musicians
themselves, Brittanie naturally sung throughout her childhood in the
church choir, as well as with her two sisters on some occasions.
However, it was not until her freshman year of college that she really
developed as a songwriter and soloist. For what she simply thought
was a form of journaling, Brittanie started writing of the emotional
and spiritual journeys taking place in her life. Her artist motto has become,
“I sing because I have to; I write because I want to.” This one
line sums up the responsibility she has for utilizing her God given
gift of singing, but furthermore emphasizes the greater passion that
she has for inspiring others through her lyrical content.
Brittanie’s debut single, “I Need You” was released in October 2012.
Her debut album entitled “Two Chords and a Pen” is set to be released
in the winter of 2013. You will be sure to hear music infused with
the sounds of neo-soul, gospel, rhythm and blues, and many other
popular genres. While it may not always be an easy task to frame the
