Intuitive, Dynamic and Saucy, American singer/songwriter and guitarist Brittany Allyson is an award-winning multidisciplinary performer with a voice to silence the chaos and pull you into the present moment. Inspired by the playful, golden tones of Ella Fitzgerald and Barbra Streisand and influenced the nuanced storytelling of Joni Mitchell, Sade, Billy Joel, Maxwell, Jason Mraz and many others, Brittany bares her soul with each note sung and intentional lyric written.
As a Musician, Brittany appears as either an acoustic solo act or with a varied ensemble of dynamic Jazz musicians, also known as: Brittany Allyson + Special Sauce. Comprised of "100% Special Ingredients," Britt's Special Sauce keeps each performance fresh with improvisational instrumentation slathering her songs with the sauciest of sounds!
As an Actress, she has starred in National Commercials (AMAZON ECHO, KROGER, WA LOTTERY), Equity Productions, and several New Broadway Musical Workshops with Texas Musical Theatre Workshop (Founded by THE PROM Broadway Producer Natasha Davison). Originally from Houston, Brittany is a professionally trained vocalist with a BFA in Acting from St. Edward's University in Austin. She is the recipient of the 2014 Austin Critics' Table W.H. Deacon Crain Award, the nominee for the 2014 & 2015 Austin Critics' Table, Broadway World Austin and Central Texas Excellence in Theatre Awards for 'Best Leading Actress in a Musical'. Currently based in Seattle, she is a proud cofounder of Filament: A Collab Lab, a site-specific lab theatre company.
In 2017, Britt began fusing her original music with her theatrical training in creating and directing a "pop-up" dance-theatre concert, entitled: HERe* [hidden in the mask]. After locally touring the production, HERe* was invited to perform at Seattle's iconic Microfest Music Festival & Bumbershoot Music Festival.
Britt says her songs come to her along her personal (and never-ending) journey of self-empowerment. She hopes the musical messages she shares serve and encourage you while celebrating the joy that is music.
In response to the stay-at-home lockdown, Brittany Allyson partnered with friend and fellow Jazz Vocalist/Songwriter, GG Rogers, in creating a virtual weekly songwriting challenge entitled the #SaturdaySongAssignment on Instagram. Each Saturday of Quarantine, participating artists upload an original song inspired by two random words selected by the hosts.
