Sounds | Britney Spencer, Sober & Skinny


Country en soul/r&b, het ging altijd goed samen en doet dat nog steeds. Getuige deze ultra-oorwurm van ene Britney Spencer. In alle eerlijkheid, het nummer is zo 'country' dat we er de soulstempel nooit zouden bijgehaald hebben zouden we niet weten dat de jongedame Afro-American is. Jaja, ook wij doen wel eens aan stereotypering. Voor knappe oneliners kan je al evengoed terecht bij het genre: “You over-drink and I overeat, we under-think everything”. Sober & Skinny is een countryparel die put uit een rijke geschiedenis en toch volledig hedendaags klinkt. Toppertje!

Brittney Spencer is a singer-songwriter with a free spirit and a love for molding life, truth and wild imagination into songs. Her love for storytelling drove the Baltimore native to Nashville in 2013 with dreams of singing and writing country music. She's since toured and performed as a background singer for such artists as Carrie Underwood & Christopher Cross all while establishing herself as a songwriter in Music City.

In late 2020 Spencer began her ascent to stardom with the release of her debut EP which garnered rave reviews from the likes of Maren Morris, Amanda Shires, Billboard and American Songwriter. Morris even went so far as to name check Spencer as an artist to watch during her 2020 CMA Female Vocalist of the Year acceptance speech. Brittney is now part of CMT’s Next Women of Country class of 2021 and was named an Artist to Watch in 2021 by Spotify and Pandora.
