Britt is the pop alias of acclaimed composer and Emmy-winning actor Brittany Allen. She is self taught in music production, and writes, produces, and mixes all of her own tracks. Britt also functions as the editor and main videographer of her music videos.
Allen is the composer of the indie hit What Keeps You Alive, (IFC) the third film she and partner (filmmaker Colin Minihan) collaborated on, which Allen also starred in. The film premiered at SXSW, was named a NYTimes Critics Pick and one of Rolling Stone’s Top Ten Horror Films of 2018. Allen’s score was released through Lakeshore Records and on vinyl by Burning Witches Records, and was featured on Vulture – alongside some of the genre’s top contemporary composers – Entertainment Weekly and CBC Q. Her second feature score, for the soon to be released “Z” won “best score” at the Sin City Film Festival, and will premiere on AMC’s streaming service, SHUDDER this Spring. A recent write up wrote that “Z’s secret weapon is Brittany Allen, who provides a soul-tugging score and created the unsettling artwork for the film’s imaginary friend.” Allen heads to SXSW again this year to support her most recent composing venture, with the film “Selfie”.
Before shifting her sights to music, Allen built a vast resume of work as an actor on both sides of the border. Most recently, she played fan-favorite Popclaw, on Amazon’s hit show “The Boys” from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. She was also opposite Taylor Schilling in “The Prodigy” and in the latest installment of the cult SAW franchise, “Jigsaw”. Her first two films with her partner Colin Minihan, “Extraterrestrial” and “It Stains The Sands Red” premiered at Tribeca and Los Angeles Film Festival, respectively. After starting her acting career as a kid in Toronto, on shows such as Bomb Girls, Schitt’s Creek, The Listener, Falling Water, Taken, Allen’s first big break in the US came when she landed a regular role on the long-running soap opera All My Children. She went on to win an Emmy Award for her work on the show.
Allen is a multi-hyphenate of the truest sense, an artist who is just beginning to show her multitude of colours.
