Brittany Howard first hit the scene in the early 2010s, as a member of the rock band Alabama Shakes. As their lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter, Howard’s soulful delivery can be heard on hit songs like “Hold On”, “Don’t Wanna Fight”, and “Gimme Your Love”.
Born in Athens, Alabama, Howard grew up immersed in ‘70s Rock, which greatly influenced her unique
brand of Southern Rock.
After nine years and two studio albums together, the Grammy Award-winning Shakes went on hiatus. That didn’t stop Howard, who had already formed the bands Thunderbitch and Bermuda Triangle. In 2019, she released her solo debut album, Jaime, featuring the hit single “Stay High”. The album would go on to earn seven Grammy nominations, with “Stay High” winning the award for Best Rock Song at the
63rd annual award ceremony.
