Our Song of the Day is Find Your Music from award-winning, singer-songwriter, Brittany Elise. The fun, feel-good track was made to echo around the summer airwaves, and is off her forthcoming album, set for release later this year.
Brittany says, “[Find Your Music] was written to be a feel-good reminder that although we sometimes get caught up in life’s stressors, life is too short to worry. We have to remember not to put too much pressure on ourselves, just do what we want, and be who we want to be, even if it’s outside what people expect from you.”
Find Your Music was recorded in Brittany’s studio in Queensland and produced at The SongStore in Victoria with Adrian Hannan.
Brittany says, “The recording process was one of my favourite parts of this song because I decided to take an online course in music production after covid-19 shut down the world. I set up my own studio at home to ensure I could keep writing, recording and releasing music, then I teamed up with Adrian to create a fun, feel good sound.”
Her first album Something More (which she launched in Nashville and at sold out shows throughout Queensland, NSW and Victoria) debuted at #2 on the Australian iTunes Country Charts and #20 on the all genres chart. Its subsequent singles Another Day, Something More, Pit Stop and Dorothy May also charted.
Her previous single, A Simple Plan reached #1 on the 2020 Australian iTunes charts. The song was written for Mr. Keith Payne, Australian Victoria Cross recipient and released at his Civic Reception in Queensland, to mark the 50th anniversary of his action in Kon Tum Province Vietnam.
Last year, Brittany was shortlisted as a Finalist for the Patti McKinnon ‘Up and Coming Artist’ Award at the ICMA Australian Awards. In 2021, she started the initiative of ‘Raise Your Voice’, a show empowering local female singer-songwriters, whilst bringing local community women together.
