Where is the “love”? Love - a word used so loosely and seemingly with very little meaning in music and relationships these days. Rising independent artist Brittany Bloom hopes to bring the love back to music, R&B, and relationships with her recently released, single “You”.
This southern sweetheart was born and raised in Florence, South Carolina where she began singing as a tiny tot in her church’s sunbeam choir. She feels that she got her singing pipes from both sides of her family. She admires her Aunt “Pie” who performed with the legendary Niles Rodgers and the band Chic. Bloom states, “Even though I was from a small town, I knew that singing for a living was possible since I saw firsthand how my Aunt made it to the bright lights and the television screen. She made me feel like I could make it too!” She has been making her living as a professional singer since 2012, traveling all and singing with various bands and artists.
Bloom started songwriting at the age of 13, when her sister discovered this hidden talent of hers. Her sister was impressed with her lyrics and voice and pushed Bloom to pursue her dreams even though their parents were very skeptical. Bloom used her 20 year old sibling and a few of her sister’s college friends as an audience for the first few songs she wrote. After impressing them, even with their notable age difference, Bloom definitely gained the courage she needed to pursue her dreams of singing for the masses as a career and no longer a hobby.
Brittany Bloom has been performing on stages all across the world including Atlanta, NYC, Las Vegas, Nashville, Hawaii to Dubai, Asia, Mexico and many more. Bloom has been holding down her career as a professional singer for the last five years, sharing stages with multi-Grammy Award winning artists and American Idols. She has performed for huge stadiums, festivals, cruise ships, clubs, lounges and more, even performing at pre-Oscar events in 2017.
Bloom has had some heavy hitters join in to help create her debut single – the leading track from her upcoming EP scheduled for release in Fall 2018. Multi-Grammy Award winning producer Alvin Speights notes, “What’s unique about her is that she doesn’t sound like any other artist. She has her own sound and that’s important.” Speights was the mixing engineer and he also recorded some of her vocals. Another Multi Grammy Award winner Glenn Schick, mastered this song. Bloom is also a songwriter, and wrote this song upon finding a new love after having a few failed relationships.
Since moving to Atlanta and having the opportunity to work with many industry executives along with prominent musicians, she has been introduced to a wider scope of music which has influenced her sound. With her first promo tour scheduled for North America, Bloom is sure give you variety and is excited about showcasing her sound in the next upcoming singles.
