“There’s been a development in my writing process. I wanted things to be a bit more percussive and fuller-sounding,” Brit explained from her Charlotte, N.C. home. “I’m a huge fan of Florence and the Machine, and I love Sia’s stuff.”
“I've also always had extremely eclectic musical tastes,” she said. “The constant that runs through is that very rarely do I find songs truly interesting and moving without some sort of lyrical component that kind of jolts me.”
Settling in Charlotte after college, Brit absorbed sounds from the area’s vibrant indie-folk scene, which were reflected in her two albums to date (2016’s Let Me Hang the Moon and last year’s Make Something Beautiful).
But a reconnection with her love of ‘90s alt-pop and a transformational collaboration with New York producer Scott Jacoby (Coldplay, Vampire Weekend, Sia etc.) spun Brit’s Seashells & Stories EP into a more distinctive and three-dimensional expression. The collection artfully mingles acoustic and electronic elements, while Jacoby left every nuance of Brit’s dynamic, soulful timbre and profound lyrics bare to the ear.
