Brynn Elliott – Making Music With Philosophy
“Philosophy and music are two sides of the same coin,” Brynn explains, “Pop music looks for what is universal in the world, providing that place for people to come and relate about the things we all feel, which is what philosophy does as well. My passion for those ideas isn’t going to go away after college – they might just look and sound different.”
Vevo announced the release of Brynn Elliott’s live performances of “Tongue Tied.”
Stripped-down piece of work, listening to Brynn playing the piano reminds of a classic Elton John’s type of mood. Her voice sounds peaceful and comforting, singing relatable lyrics, as she is “articulating how [she feels]”.
The all white staging emphasizes this feeling of calmness and innocence. It even helps you imagine what it’d be like to attend an intimate showcase with the artist.
Brynn’s journey started at age 14, when she determined that she’d become the first member of her family to apply to college. More specifically, Brynn was going to apply to Harvard. She buried herself in schoolwork and extracurriculars to build up her application, all while teaching herself guitar from YouTube videos.
In the past few years, Brynn has gone from writing songs on her bathroom floor to playing over 200 shows and signing with Atlantic Records. “Internet You” is off her debut EP, Time of Our Lives. The album was inspired by her time at Harvard studying philosophy, with each of the five tracks inspired by a different philosopher or set of ideas.
