Brittany Bosco

 

Brittany Bosco is not an alien as far as we know

Even if she can get away from her sound it’s rooted in something more like Sarah Vaughan earthiness than Outkast outer space since the age of seven.  “Black Keys” from her newly released spectrum EP sounds like a hip-hop-era Vaughn with lush vocals floating over the jazzy electro beats

“Her voice is impeccable,”  Bosco describes her admiration for Vaughan’s ability to convey so much emotion through vocal manipulation “And that’s what I want my music to depict the spirit of Sarah, but I have my own style”

While Bosco vocally portrays lines to some other-worldly themes, it  certainly inspires her to form her own Funkyolon destination, she invites listeners to Spectrum’s intro “Like Janelle [Monae] has Metropolis, and Erykah Badu have Vortex [Tour] this is their world and I just wanted to create my own.” When you come to my show please visit Funkyolon – it is the continent that led to the “City Of Nowhere” It’s just more conceptual if people are more familiar with a place ”

Bosco majored in fashion design at Atlanta SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) she is also part of the Big Up collegial collective of music and design students who independently produced and packaged Spectrum

“It’s prejudging a genre-bending mix:” 8-Trak “combines serious soul singing with athrobbing Caribbean light and jazzy horns “City of Nowhere ‘bragging whispery R & B vocals over a laid-back electro-beat and” Black and White “puts Bosco’s bluesy tone front and center in a sparsely heartbreaking piano

” I’m trying to create my self tie my own sound “Bosco says” I’ll tell you verbatim what is happening in my life but if you listen you actually catch the pieces of what’s happening with me and also in me ”
