BIO

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, Labi Siffre, 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, 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 Microfest Music Festival Bumbershoot Music Festival.

 

In response to the stay-at-home mandate of 2020, Brittany partnered with friend and fellow songwriter, GG Rogers, in creating a weekly songwriting challenge called the #SaturdaySongAssignment on Instagram. Each Saturday of Quarantine, participating artists uploaded an original song inspired by two random words selected by the hosts. With 52 original songs written, follow & explore Brittany's most recent acoustic creations performed the week she wrote them via her IGTV @BrittanyAllysonOfficial.


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.
