Brittany Anjou is a NYC based composer, pianist, vibraphonist, multi-instrumentalist, punk singer, jazz educator and improviser. Exploring everything from Duke Ellington to Bikini Kill in her solo repertoire, this creative, versatile, and virtuoso performer hails from Seattle. Starting from the age of twelve Brittany has performed in award winning jazz ensembles throughout the U.S.A., Europe and Middle East. She has performed with artists such as Wynton Marsalis, Ernestine Anderson, Clark Terry, Elysian Fields, and The Shaggs. In February of 2019, Anjou released a 1960's style jazz piano trio album of originals entitled Enamiĝo Reciprokataj (Esperanto for "Reciprocal Love") on the Origin Records label, which received wonderful reviews on Downbeat and All About Jazz, claiming her a “virtuoso”, and her album “highly sophisticated” and “contender for the year’s strongest debut”. Graduating from New York University in 2006 under the mentorship of Stefon Harris, Don Friedman, Ralph Alessi, and many others, Anjou has worked relentlessly in acoustic live music. Anjou was a key support musician in the mid 2010’s revival of 1960s all-girl outsider music band, The Shaggs, and supported Dot Wiggin in the studio recording 2013 album, Ready! Get! Go!, released on the label Alternative Tentacles. Anjou directs, arranges, orchestrates, and composes for many artists professionally, including her own ensembles, The Brittany Anjou Trio, L.A.R.C.E.N.Y (25 piece chamber orchestra), Bi TYRANT (experimetal), Ghanaian Gyil Gala with Alfred Kpebsaane, and BEWAA, her original ensembles featuring Ghanaian xylophone. She is working on an album titled Nong Voru (“Fake Love” in Dagara) with Ghanaian master xylophonist Alfred Kpebsaane. Currently in residence at the Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmed Cultural Center opera house in Kuwait, she works as a freelance composer, session musician, educator, headliner, and support performer.
