Brianna is a 17 year old singer/songwriter/musician and Potomac Records recording artist based in central Virginia with the style and charisma of someone twice her age. Her mother was an orchestra musician and singer during her high school years and constantly sang to Brianna during pregnancy and virtually every day after. Brianna attributes much of her ear for music and talent to her mother!
While playing violin for four years in the school system she discovered a love for piano. Of course that was not enough for Brianna as her love for music continued to grow, so she began learning to play the acoustic guitar. Three instruments was a little much to juggle with her school time so she reluctantly decided to put the violin on the shelf for a while. Brianna’s next project will likely involve learning to play the mandolin.
Brianna broke into the entertainment industry as a solo artist in 2013. She spent almost every weekend of the summer and fall playing music to the delight of her audiences. She played at numerous festivals, Constitution Day @ James Madison’s Montpelier, and was a regular at restaurants in the Central and Northern Virginia area. Brianna was awarded a scholarship to attend the Steve Kaufman Acoustic Kamp in Maryville, Tennessee where she was exposed to Bluegrass music and the fun of playing with a multitude of different people and instruments. Brianna has been performing to audiences from Myrtle Beach, S.C. to Central Pennsylvania. Brianna was a local semi-finalist in the Country Music Showdown at the Fredericksburg, Virginia competition at the age of 13 and was a finalist in the 2015 local competition. During 2013, Brianna performed at fundraising events in Charlottesville, Manassas and Woodbridge, Virginia to benefit burned children and Toys for Tots. Fundraising events in 2014 include Friends of Wounded Veterans,
