“Reminiscent of recent feminist-inspired albums by Sara Bareilles and The Highwomen, the bulk of Britt Connors' third album is the politest musical 'screw you' ever recorded. Her lyrics are incisive and the range of musical styles on show is impressive.” - Adele Buck, Novelist
Britt Connors grew up surrounded by music of all kinds: the folk, rock, and jazz of her parents, the classical of her grandparents, and the pop of 80’s and 90’s radio. As such, the music she writes and plays is as eclectic as her background. After graduating from Ithaca College with a degree in vocal performance, she devoted herself to learning guitar, crafting her first songs, and finding her place in the Boston music scene. Along the way, she met and married celebrated drummer Mike Connors, who has played in her band since 2008. Her three albums, The Bad Side of Good (released under her maiden name of Sawdon), Warmer Season (under Britt Connors and Bourbon Renewal), and Longitude have celebrated her wide-ranging interests and influences, slipping nimbly and authentically between soulful ballads, pop-rock, and gospel-infused Americana. She's currently recording her fourth album (to be pressed on vinyl) and is celebrating her first pop/rock single release ("Take Your Own Ride" - out Feb 23- a song that is about being done with constant people-pleasing, about recognizing one's own power, and about taking back that power) with her stellar band of Boston greats, including Andrew Stern (guitar), Ed Lucie (bass), Bethany Weiman (cello), James Rohr (keys), and horn section led by Jerry Sabatini (trumpet). They will be playing a Release Party show at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge, MA on Friday, March 1st. When she’s not playing and singing, Britt can be found teaching Pilates in the restored carriage house she shares outside Boston with Mike and Ringo the Wonder-Cat.

“When you have a wonderful instrument as supple as Britt's mellifluous voice, it is a luxury that allows you to apply it to a wide array of styles. With a writing flair for beautifully lyrical compositions, it takes the possibilities even further. On her recently released third album, "Longitude," Britt Connors and the vehicle of her voice roam all over the map.” - Nate Dow, formerly of The Boston Herald
