Brittany Gillstrap

Performed in Sofar Minneapolis, Washington D.C. and Cincinnati

22 year old singer-songwriter Brittany Gillstrap, was in a pop band before adulthood, and last year released her first solo full length album, entitled What the Sailor Sees. Her tunes bring to mind the catchiest hits of indie staple favourites Ingrid Michaelson, Feist, Regina Spektor, and Jaymay. Her inquisitively playful nature is the balance to her experience and years of practice, and that voice is something to be reckoned with. She likes to listen to Sufjan Stevens and The Beatles, and goes swing dancing in her free time. She's inspired by quaint, hidden places, travelling, ukulele's and guitars, all sorts of music, new and interesting experiences, and all sorts of people and cultures. "I write what I feel, what I want to do, and where I'd like to imagine myself". She says. "My soul purpose in life is to capture the heart, and wonder of the world around me, and share that joy to people through my music."
