Classically trained and raised on rock, Brittany Garrison has taken every opportunity to expand as an artist. Coupling a voracious delivery and honest lyrics, Garrison connects with fearless intensity. Just nineteen, she is no foreigner to exerting her creative energies in the studio or on the stage. Having honed her craft in her father's recording studio since she was just a child, Garrison released her debut album of original rock music in fall 2001 at the age of 15. The release, Cloud Nine, earned Garrison significant regional radio success and television exposure in New York, Pennsylvania, and Canada, launching her into the public eye and resulting in a loyal and widespread fanbase. Since her first release, amongst various notable appearances, Garrison has taken time to reload her guns, creating a fierce composite of maliciously delicate songs. Fan reaction to her new material has been escalating as Garrison elaborates on universal experiences such as revenge, hope, victory and loss.
Even with an arsenal of strong songs and an army of support behind her, Brittany Garrison has still battled unique challenges that arise from being a rock artist in a rural area with a predominantly country/western and gospel atmosphere. However, Garrison has always had a way of meandering through a crowd and walking out with followers. In 2002, Garrison was contacted by a country radio station and asked to write two songs to submit to the renowned Colgate Country Showdown. "We know you aren't a country artist," stated Rod Biehler of WZKZ, "but you have what it takes to do this. We want to see you try." Garrison rose to the challenge and within weeks she found herself warming up country legend Lee Greenwood for a crowd of over 10,000. She returned once again the following year to perform with Emerson Drive and Rebecca Lynn Howard.
With a totally new market showing interest in her work, Garrison had more support than ever. In the spring of 2004, Thom Hazaert of Corporate Punishment Records in Los Angeles (Rikets, Shenoah, Switched) was in Cleveland, Ohio scouting talent at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Battle of the Bands and was encouraged to look into Garrison by members of the event's winning band, Heavy Depth Perception. It wasn't long before Hazaert was co-producing Garrison's material alongside she and her father, Michael Garrison. Soon after, the late David Reilly, former frontman of industrial grunge band God Lives Underwater, was added to the mix. Combining Brittany Garrison's melodic and poetic songwriting approach with the hardcore, industrial and prog-rock styles of Hazaert, Reilly and Michael Garrison, respectively, created a killer sound immersed in hooks and dramatics.
Brittany Garrison is stomping on new grounds everyday. She's taking her unique sound to new heights and there are no intentions of stopping as she firmly states, "I have a story to tell and a rage to rant. Expect that from me, definitely."
