Brittany Campbell Drops, “Matter”

Brittany Campbell is an award winning Singer, Songwriter, Producer, Animator and Actress. Getting her start from an early age winning a singing competition that led her to join the Metropolitan Opera, Brittany has graced Broadway stages in productions such as Hamilton. Brittany’s debut album Stay Gold was self-released in 2018 year to rave reviews. Showing off her arsenal of emotion-invoking R&B lyrics and vocals on Stay Gold, the album caught the attention of tastemakers like Bandcamp who said “Campbell’s music fills the space between public relationships and intimate narratives, voicing the fears, promises, reservations, and revelations of the innermost heart to the unnamed lover/s addressed in her songwriting.” Campbell is also in the band Mermaid with girlfriend Candace Quarrels, recently featured on NPR’s Tiny Desk Top Shelf curated by Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard.

Her newest track is a protest song and also a self-illustrated video called, “Matter.” The song itself begins with some beautiful, emotion filled guitar finger picking, that is paired with her amazing vocals. The video features various drawings of recent victims of police brutality, and has some incredible animation. This song is another track to help find change in a world that needs it! Check out the video below.
