Brittney Crush

Follow Musician, Actor and Vocal Coach Brittney Crush through a musical timeline of her journey as a young ambitious Hartford creative to now creating a global name and brand for herself in Los Angeles.  Before moving to California, she served as a vocal instructor and summer choir teacher at The Artists Collective as well as teaching underprivileged youth at places like CRT, The Boys & Girls Club and more. This Hartford native has had solo performances at The Crypto.Com Arena, was recently spotlighted on Revolt TV, and has been invited to perform with her electrifying band at festivals and well-known music venues around the country such as the Taste of Soul festival in Atlanta, New York City’s SOB’s and others. Being that her foundation is in Theater, she’s recently had the opportunity to be in shows like Grey's Anatomy, VIDA and BET’s Games People Play. We are excited to know that her journey started right here on this very same stage back in 2000 when her mother signed her up for The Hartford Children's Theatre. This is truly a full-circle moment and we hope you enjoy this intimate musical experience.
