Brittany Sword (pronounced brit-n-ee sohrd) 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 rhythmic style guitar playing make for an other worldly and somewhat upbeat performance you can get lost in. In most of her music you can hear the stories of self reliance, fighting losing battles, rising back up, losing a sense of self in the processes 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 concert experience you don’t want to miss.
Brittany Sword, began her solo career, in May of 2019. With concert dates and the release of her debut single on the book, 2019 is shaping 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’s first single “Say Things” set to release late Summer/early Fall of 2019, 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” will be available on all major digital and streaming platforms.
After months of mulling over her stage name (which at first was her nickname Brittie) she decided to change it to her given name “Brittany Sword”. Her influences are vast, from Nora Jone’s, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Evanescence, Highly Suspect and many more. Brittie is a lover of music and art with her favorite style of art being abstract and poetic.
