  • Album Announcement!!! :)

    Over the last 6 months or so, Will Copps (willcopps.com) and I have poured our hearts and souls into a project. We could not be more proud of the music we have worked so hard to create on this album. Being 4,097 miles apart originally seemed lik…e such an obstacle, but in actuality- it gave us an opportunity to work even harder to find and create a musical environment that bleeds the essence of true inspiration, honesty, and friendship. We are thankful, pleased, and honored to present this video announcement of our album title and release date :) Enjoy!

  • April is NEXT MONTH! :)

    Will Copps and Brittany Jean recorded an album. This album will come out NEXT month! (April 2014) We cannot wait for you to hear it!! Until then, here is our official press photo. Our photo shoot process was almost as unique as our album….we had to figure out how to take a photo of us when we live over 4,000 miles apart. Clearly, a bit of magic took care of that :) Before our album comes out, here are a few more things to look forward to:
    -The reveal of our album name

    -The reveal of our album cover art

    -The release of our promo video

    -The release of our first single

    -THE RELEASE OF THE ALBUM :)

  • BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS

    Excited to share that a new album by Will Copps and Brittany Jean will be released THIS Spring. The unique 8 track album was written and composed half a world apart (Brittany in VA, Will in Germany). Its sound is unlike anything we have ever done- a sound that could be described as the genre of “FOLKTRONICA” (google it?)… Exactly one month from today we will be revealing our promo video and album title! We cannot wait for you to hear, or rather experience our new music!!

    This past January, I also had the pleasure of finally tracking my solo album at Pick Up Productions in Maryland. The album: Songs for Someone Else. It is just about finished and I will release details about that album at a later time…my priority is the project listed above :) Both are beautiful, different, and exciting! :)

  • #songsforsomeoneelse

    As always, it’s been a while…for the last couple of months Brittany has been working solo, Will has been doing awesome art-related things in Germany, and Brian has joined the circus. Despite being so busy with all of our own projects…Will and Brian have managed to exhibit one of their art collaborations in the midwest (I can’t remember if it’s Kansas or Oklahoma) and Will and I have been working through email on some interesting music projects.

    I, Brittany, have been working on putting together an album of songs I have written over the last year…I had decided early on that when and if I finished, I would title the project “Songs for Someone Else” for reasons that I will explain at another time…I have been quietly been hinting at the album title in twitter and facebook posts, not that anyone would notice…but I am excited to figure out how to get all of these tracks recorded and compiled into a final album. The album will be folk-rock in genre….it will be painful and beautiful as all wonderful things are?! :)

    Peace, love, rock and roll ;) -Britt

    A sneak peak from my most recent photo shoot!

  • “Britney Jean”

    Yes, that’s right…I just heard the news….Britney Spears has titled her newest album “Britney Jean”…..I respect her but at the time I don’t know exactly how I feel about this. Honestly, my first reaction was “FML” …. but maybe this brings some possibilities, look for a future duet featuring Brittany Jean and Britney Jean?! I am dreamer folks.

  • Ramble on…

    My favorite Led Zeppelin song…and my ultimate favorite song of all time: ‘Ramble On.’  I remember the first time I listened to Led Zeppelin II, it was in the fall of my sophomore year of high school….at the same time I was discovering Radiohead’s KID A and Martina McBride. I love that my taste in music makes no sense. Anyways, as the summer is ending and fall is approaching, I am comforted by this great song once again. The band has been through a lot of changes, the biggest being that our drummer has moved to Germany for 3 years…although we will continue to collaborate on projects within and outside of Brittany Jean, I (Brittany) will be writing and performing solo for a while. It is sad because we really miss our band being together, but with these changes come a lot of opportunities…and so I say to myself “ramble on…” :)

  • This might be a bad idea….

     

    Will (drummer) and Brittany randomly decided to get together this past Saturday (April 13) and quickly film a simple, outdoor acoustic music video. We usually have crazy ideas, so naturally we decided to go ahead and try what seemed to be the strangest one…this involved Will looking quite ridiculous walking backwards while holding both an audio recorder and a video camera in his hands (he is AWESOME!!) Meanwhile, Brittany tried her best not to laugh every time Will almost walked backwards into a tree or branch. The guitar and vocals were done live (as you can tell by the sound of the leaves and branches we are stepping on as we go). We nailed the shot in under an hour and we were pretty pleased with the results!

    Click HERE to watch the Foxboro music video!!!!

    The song performed is called Foxboro…it’s working title was “Calm My Heart” but evolved into Foxboro after we decided the word “calm” looked like “clam”…which led us to the word “clam chowder”….which led us to think of New England…which led to the name Foxboro, which is a city in Massachusetts. Truly “Brittany Jean” of us.

    The meaning of Foxboro: The story behind Foxboro, is the idea of a love story that starts in this life and continues to the next. Brittany has an odd, sometimes “morbid, yet hopeful” fascination with such ideas of love transcending through time. This song poses one of her biggest questions: What great love from this life on Earth will YOU see waiting for you if and when you reach the gates of Heaven? Will it be your first love, or will it be your last? Embarrassingly, Brittany admits that she often imagines the last scene from the movie “Titanic” when Rose dies and meets Jack at the staircase of what may be assumed as some kind of afterlife or Heaven. So, what happened to her lifelong husband, why isn’t he meeting her at the staircase?!?! Great question, stupid reference.

     

    Foxboro (Lyrics)

    On the other side of this,

    I feel your warm breath

    Steal a kiss, behind their eyes.

    In another life,

    Will I see you

    Standing by the doorway, baby

     

    There will be no seas between us

    There will be no seams to keep us

    Take my hand, is this just how it was supposed to be?

     

    But I love you with divided heart

    I love you with a love apart

    But I fear, there’ll come a time for this to end.

     

    On the other side of this,

    I speak to crowds

    I weave, I scream your name out loud.

    In another life,

    Will we run away?

    Through Heaven, Hell can’t stay

     

    Oh, be calm my heart

    Just like my father taught me to

    It’s much to bear

    We both got into to here

    Is this just how it’s supposed to be?

     

    I love you with divided heart

    I love you with a love apart

    But I fear, there’ll come a time for this to end.

    Oh, but I love you with my broken heart

    And I love you with a love apart

    And I fear, there’ll come a time for this to end.

    Oh, be calm my heart

    It’s time for this to end.

    Oh, be calm my heart

    It’s time for this to end.
