Dynamically sensitive and saucy, American singer/songwriter 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, Kate Bush, Prince, Maxwell, Norah Jones, Labi Siffre and countless 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 an ensemble of improvisational powerhouses that help flesh out her Jazzy-Pop Alternative sound to include groovy bass lines, tantric rhythms, soaring strings, atmospheric synth, intricate keys and tasteful horn lines. When not performing her original music, Brittany can be found singing with various musical acts, including Seattle's Reposado (Tequila Funk), Secret Sound Adventure, Ollella, The Ancient Robotz and at jazz jams throughout the PNW.
As an Actress, she has starred in Equity Productions, National Commercials (AMAZON ECHO, KROGER, WA LOTTERY), and several New Broadway Musical Workshops with Texas Musical Theatre Workshop (Founded by THE PROM Broadway Producer Natasha Davison). Holding a BFA in Acting from St. Edward's University in Austin, Texas, Brittany is a professionally trained vocalist originally from Houston. 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' for her performance as Mary Flynn in Stephen Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along. Since 2016, she is a proud cofounder of Filament: A Collab Lab, a Seattle based site-specific lab theatre company focused on creating accessible professional theatre productions and workshops.
In 2017, Brittany began fusing her original music with her theatrical training in creating a "pop-up" dance-theatre concert, entitled: HERe* [hidden in the mask], choreographed by Sophia Franzella. After locally touring the production, HERe* was invited to perform at Seattle's iconic Bumbershoot Music Festival.
In response to the stay-at-home mandate of 2020, Brittany partnered with friend and fellow songwriter, GG Rogers, in developing a weekly songwriting challenge called the #SaturdaySongAssignment on Instagram. Each Saturday of Quarantine, participating artists uploaded an original song via IGTV inspired by two random words selected by the hosts.
