Performer/songwriter Brittain Ashford grew up in Seattle. Though she always had an affinity for music, it wasn’t until she moved to New York that she began to dedicate herself to the cause.
She starred in the 2017 Broadway hit, Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812, as well as Dave Malloy's Off-Broadway song-cycle, Ghost Quartet. She fronts her own band, Prairie Empire, and will be releasing a new solo album of re-tooled show tunes this summer called Drama Club. The first single from the album, a dreamy version of You’re The One That I Want from Grease, is now streaming on all platforms.
She currently resides in Brooklyn and, contrary to popular belief, does not own a cat.
