ABOUT BRITT NICOLE
Grammy nominated artist-on-the-rise Britt Nicole is the new breed of popstar – a trailblazing musician focused more on her mission than her position to reach her millions worldwide with songwriting so authentic and so void of manufacturing it feels alien. The gold-certified Capitol CMG recording artist has accomplished what industry critics would consider wildcard success for a crossover artist, scaling categorically Christian music up Top 40 charts; and she’s just getting started.
Born Brittany Nicole Waddell on August 2, 1984, half an hour north of Charlotte in Kappapolis, North Carolina, family members will tell you she came into the world singing. Her adolescent years were full of the arts; from singing at churches and in choirs, dancing ballet, jazz and hip hop, to picking up piano and guitar. After finishing high school Belmont University in Nashville came calling with a full scholarship into their music program, and Britt had a decision to make. Ultimately deferring to what she believes was a divine calling and redirection, she turned down the prestigious offer to embark on the often long and grueling road of making it as an artist. Quick to pound the pavement, Britt called churches in the area and started booking herself at small venues around town. By the time she had her self-marketed independent CD release party in 2003, there were over 600 people lined up at the door, hours before show time. The aptly titled album, Follow the Call, still under her given name, led to her first management deal with Vertical Entertainment, development deal with Word Records, and record deal with Sparrow Records in 2006. In the years that followed Britt released her debut album Say It, sophomore album The Lost Get Found, found herself topping the radio charts and earning a GMA Dove Award nomination for Female Vocalist of the Year.
In December 2012, Britt signed to Capitol Records and released “Gold” as her debut single for pop radio and married producer, writer and now manager, Joshua Crosby. With a re-release of Gold in April 2013, she found her mega hit in movies like Twentieth Century Fox’s “The Other Woman” starring Cameron Diaz, ultimately landing Britt her first Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for Gold and her first headlining tour (“You’re Worth More Than Gold Tour”). Britt just released her fourth studio album, Britt Nicole on October 7th, appeasing her bevy of growing fans who have long-suffered the wait since Gold. The “pop artist with a message” with career sales exceeding 800K, continues to appeal to the digital-savvy Gen Y-ers while making the kind of music you want your daughters to listen to, zeroing in on precisely that, the message, in her highly-anticipated 14-track deluxe compilation of high energy tracks, catchy hooks and ballads. Her career is on the upswing, but she has prioritized maintaining a connection with her fans, reading their stories, hearing their hearts, and allowing their stories to play a key part in shaping her hits like “Gold” and many of the new tracks on Britt Nicole. “A lot of girls come up to me with their heads down [at my shows], and I can just tell that they’re feeling broken” she says, hoping that they arrive feeling one way “but leave feeling like there’s hope.” That’s the big picture for the Britt.
