Artist of the Month for May, 2012.
singer/songwriters quest for fame and fortune so
dominates their reasoning that lost in the pursuit,
is the music itself. Brittany Opperman, a talented
young artist from Gettysburg, PA is so grounded
by love of GOD, family, and country that composing
and performing is as natural as inhaling and exhaling.
Her first public performance was a duet with her
Mamaw singing “Born Again” as a three-year
old at a barn revival. Her family, it turns out
is rich in talent including a great uncle that performed
at The Grand Ole Opry and a second cousin with a
production company in Denver.
The completion of her self-titled EP in the spring
of 2012 is the culmination of twists and turns that
is life. Every person has a story. Brittany chose
lyrics and music to propel her, not let disappointment
and difficulties define her. Don’t let her
demure stature fool you!
Inside is a determined songstress, methodically
pouring her experiences upon paper. The fruits of
that labor becoming melodies that stir our collective
souls. For instance, “Anymore” and “Love
Was…” are haunting sonnets of love lost
and the ensuing pain. She deftly switches gears,
lifting us with “Slow Song” and “Fallin’”
that remind us the heights and depths of true love
far surpass the shallowness of counterfeit affections.
Ultimately we are ALL judged NOT by what life throws
at us but how we respond.
You see, it’s not about where we are going.
It’s about being together in the moment and
embracing it. Life indeed is but a vapor, here for
a short time then vanishing quickly. Brittany looks
forward to meeting and performing for you soon.
Buckle your seat belt and enjoy the ride!
