ALBUM OF THE WEEK
Brittany Bosco - Spectrum 2.0
Almost without warning unheard and unseen, Brittany Bosco has created a growing revolution amongst her peers and her contemporaries in Atlanta’s growing, cultural music scene. The Savannah native took the reigns of the pulse coursing through the veins of underground music with her release of the The Spectrum EP in 2008, and has continued to ride this pulse, making it’s vibrations and sound audible to those in the mainstream industry. The recent release of her debut video, “Blues for Blue/Black & White” , as well as a string of performances on both coasts, displays Bosco’s ability to captivate audiences and break boundaries of age, genre, sex, and race. California to Chicago, New York to North Carolina, Bosco’s ability to bend genres and captivate the hearts and imagination of her multitude of supporters is evident. Within a years time, Bosco has received major media recognition, and her fan base has grown exponentially. She has no plan to stop anytime soon.
There are few things more exciting, moving, thrilling, and mind-altering than witnessing the vocal talents and showmanship displayed at a Brittany Bosco performance. The professionally trained songstress, and self-proclaimed “actress” combines these unique gifts and truly exhibits traits of the greatest entertainers of our time. Bosco’s well-rounded taste in music, which includes contemporary alternative artists as well as legends of sound from the 1930’s, 40’s, and 50’s, combined with her love for true showmanship has made her an unstoppable force, oozing with raw talent and charming personality.
Now, with the release of her next compilation, "The Spectrum Re-Release", followed by BLACK in the fall of 2009 Bosco and The Big Up! creative collective continue to develop the Bosco brand through innovations in both music and design. Brittany Bosco is genre-bending, thought - provoking, inspiring, quirky, passionate, and honest. A diamond in the rough, a truly authentic artist creating her own waves within a sea of mediocrity. Take a look. Take a listen.
