“Falling into a rhythm with my audience by making live loops on the spot has got to be one of my favorite parts! I love creating beats and bass on my guitar to play over, it definitely makes my acoustic set a lively and energetic experience!” – Brittany Sword
“My insecurities, get the best of me. Screaming louder than my toughest argument.” – “Say Things” by Brittany Sword
Brittany Sword (pronounced brit-n-ee sord) is an American Indie Pop Singer-Songwriter with a world twist. Her music dives deep into self discovery, it seems to be a mantra of sorts for her both musically and personally. Many times life has thrown her into battles that seemed impossible to conquer but, with God and her music, she was able to make it through. Though some of her songs deal with heavy subject matter, her light and positive personality paired with her percussive guitar style playing, makes for an other worldly and upbeat performance you can get lost in.
In most of her music you can hear the stories of self reliance, love, fighting losing battles, rising back up and finding peace again. Her unique writing style stems from a mix of sultry jazz, blues, alternative rock, pop and folk, these influences come together to form her down to earth style. Brittany’s multi-instrumental background melded with her charming charisma, creates an enchanting listening experience you can feel whether it be at home or live in concert, you won’t forget her.
Though Brittany, had only just begun her solo career in May of 2019, she has already hit the ground running. With concert dates and recording sessions on the books, 2019 shaped up to be a successful first year! She has recorded and performed for several years with her husband Cory Bedford, in the alternative folk duo “The Stress Vine”. She still enjoys writing and recording with The Stress Vine and is also excited to have the opportunity to show case her solo material on stage.Brittany Sword’s first single “Say Things” (available for free download at https://signup.brittanysword.com/joinnow) deals with her own struggles of perfectionism and perceived lack of abilities. The lyrics paint a picture of battling with a nagging voice in her head that says “give up”. But, the fight is won in the chorus’s ending lines about “waking up” and speaking out against the untrue negative thoughts. “Say Things” is only available to email subscribers.
“Brittany Sword” is her given name. She had been singing into her hairbrush since she was 7 and started writing lyrics at age 12. As early as she can remember, Brittany would create entire symphony pieces in her head as she’d run in the yard and play in the woods. Writing music had always came very naturally and she knew creating music was her calling in life. Her influences are vast, from Ed Sheeran, Fleetwood Mac, The Cranberries, Highly Suspect and many more. Brittany is a lover of music and art with her favorite style of art being abstract and poetic.
