JOURNEY 'TIL NOW
NYC-based pop/alternative singer/songwriter and classical vocalist Britt Hewitt grew up in the arts schools of Jacksonville, Florida. She has been singing and writing music for as long as she can remember, and she started to teach herself to play piano by ear at the age of 5. Britt began taking voice lessons and performing for public audiences when she was just 8 years old. By the time she was 12, she had recorded her first demo album, sung on local television, and toured in Greece as a soloist with her school choir. At 15, Britt’s family relocated to Dallas, Texas, where she graduated from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. While there, she studied opera, choral music, and jazz, and she appeared in school productions ranging from Hair: The American Tribal Love Rock Musical, to Mozart’s The Magic Flute. She was among the school’s Jazz Singers, with whom she attained finalist status at The Monterey Jazz Festival in 2016. During her time in high school, she interned at The Dallas Symphony Orchestra, studied at The Recording Academy’s Grammy Camp Nashville, and became a blind audition contestant for season 10 of The Voice (for which she never performed, as the teams filled up while she waited in the wings). In 2016, Britt was accepted to The Juilliard School and began pursuing her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Arts under the tutelage of the late Sanford Sylvan. She played Mistress Quickly in the spring 2018 production of The Merry Wives of Windsor, Miles in the school’s fall 2018 production of Turn of the Screw, and Spirit in their spring 2019 production of Dido and Aeneas. The latter toured in the U.S. and Europe, including the historic Chateau de Versailles. Outside of school, Britt has recently become a member of The New York Songwriters Circle and performed her original work at The Bitter End. She is a My NYC Song Contest 2018 finalist for her song “Left Behind.” Britt credits the unwavering support of her family for her successes thus far, and as she approached her final year of her time at Juilliard, she is eagerly working towards her future as an artist.
