INFLUENCERS TALK: Brianna Colette
How have the many cultures you are mixed with affected your music?
My music is mainly influenced by the diverse group of people I’ve been exposed to all my life.
What role do you see jazz/funk playing in this age of electronica?
I think being a jazz vocalist will have a huge influence in music, when a producer has a unique voice to work with, there is no limit to what they can create.
An influencer, what does that mean to you? What are some essential qualities must you have to be considered one?
As an influencer you have the platform to inspire others to be even more creative and to constantly strive to live outside of the box. Originality, confidence and good energy will set u aside and make u an Influencer.
You’ve played at some amazing venues with renowned musicians; explain your approach in a live music setting?
Live settings are the best! You get to really see the peoples faces you are singing to, not just a sea of lights. When doing a live show i like to talk to the audience- get them nice and comfortable for the zone we are about to go in to.
What’s one thing Nashville, TN has that the big apple can never obtain?
Nashville is where I was born and still have a lot of family and good memories there. New York city will never have the woods i played in as a child or the lakes i fished in with my grandfather. Southern cooking/hospitality can never be imitated. In TN we are born with smiles.
