It encompasses joy, pathos, banality, great beauty, serenity and frenzy, nearly all of the elements I'm looking for to continue my work."

Bi TYRANT - Brittany Anjou
Keyboards / Comedic Jazz

Brittany Anjou is a Brooklyn based composer, vocalist, and piano focused multi-instrumentalist. Exploring everything from Duke Ellington to Bikini Kill in her repertoire, this creative, versatile, and virtuoso performer hails from Seattle and loves being on the road. She has just released the critically acclaimed Enamiĝo Reciprokataj via Origin Records. The album has reached 144 on the Jazz Week Top 300 chart and is getting radio airplay nationally and internationally. Channeling Duke Ellington to Bikini Kill in her repertoire, this creative, versatile, and virtuoso leader is one of a few to study, record and tour music with godmothers of punk, The Shaggs. She has also had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Wynton Marsalis, Ernestine Anderson, Clark Terry and Elysian Fields. When she isn't playing original jazz, she fronts five piece death metal band Bi TYRANT on vocals, original music from which she often circulates into her solo and trio shows as a pianist, keyboardist and vibraphonist, which she ties together with political comedy about bad psychic dreams, daily anxiety, and forever saving Planned Parenthood.
