Born in Newport News, Virginia, Brittany Tiera is the youngest of five girls. Her singing talent was discovered when she was just three years old. Following her dynamic performances in multiple local talent shows, her mother drove her nine-year-old daughter three hours to the Washington, D.C-based auditions for “Star Search,” the largest talent show on national television at the time. Brittany stunned the judges with her powerful voice, beating out 75,000 contestants to appear on the show.
In 2008, Brittany appeared on BET’S “106 & Park,” winning the Wild–Out Wednesday female R&B competition. She later returned to New York to perform at Blaze the Stage and the “106 & Park” Championship. A veteran of ten years at the ripe age of 21, Brittany Tiera released her first mixtape “Love University” online during June this year. “I always ignore the trend and focus on writing and singing what’s on my mind at the moment. If you follow trends your career ends when the trend does. That’s why I tend to ignore what’s popular at the moment,” she says.
“Love University” is a superb R&B and Urban music mixtape with which Brittany Tiera is able to showcase her sensual and melodic voice together with her intoxicating adult groove. Also featured on the mixtape is emerging emcee Regular Rell “Vepco” and production by The Dezperadows, Gumonsole Music, The VIP’s and Koalition.
Brittany also includes cover versions of songs by Usher (“Good Kisser”), Schoolboy Q (“Studio”) and Jhene Aiko (“The Worst”) to further evidence her diverse singing talents. However every track on “Love University”, including the title track itself and “Rewind”, “Footprints” or “Reconsider”, is worth the listen, as each one provides the perfect amount of passion so that, when listened to in its entirety, yields a poetic and intense overdose of a woman who soothes and stimulates listeners with her intensely velvety voice.
The authenticity of her sound and her content are not easily matched in today’s indie industry and her vocals hit all the right spots. Much of her content isn’t dressed up and sugar-coated, it’s real and women will be able to easily relate to it. The way her lyrics and music capture the real and intimate moments of the love experience on “Love University” is a quality to be admired.
“Love University” is an all-around great representation of female R&B, combining sensuality, femininity and genuine emotion to make Brittany’s debut undoubtedly memorable.You can’t skip a track, it’s just a beautiful chill 15-track mixtape that will definitely get you in the mood for that special one!
You can listen to “Love University” and relate to everything that Brittany is saying and be drawn in by the melodic music that is almost as beautiful as her voice. You can actually listen to this from start to finish without skipping which is a rare thing.
Brittany Tiera’s voice is so melodious and expressive that you can listen to “Love University” all the way through and not only enjoy being entertained, but relate to the emotion in her delivery. This will truly be a cool and worthy addition to your music collection.
