*In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Brittany Allyson partnered with fellow Jazz Vocalist & Songwriter, GG Rogers, in creating a virtual weekly songwriting challenge called the #SaturdaySongAssignment on Instagram. Each week of Quarantine, they write one original song inspired by two random words. Almost 52 Song-Weeks strong, explore Brittany's most recent acoustic creations via her Instagram IGTV @BrittanyAllysonOfficial.
Intuitive, dynamic and saucy, Brittany Allyson is a captivating multi-disciplinary performer with a voice to silence the chaos and pull you into the present. Influenced by the golden tones of Ella Fitzgerald and Barbra Streisand and the storytelling of Joni Mitchell, 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 and spicy with improvisational instrumentation slathering her acoustic tunes 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 and 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'. Additionally, she is a proud cofounder of Filament: A Collab Lab, a site-specific lab theatre company based in Seattle.
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.
