In a world when the name "Britney" (in any incarnation) is synonymous with soulless pop music, one Brittany is aiming to take it back, and add a little soulful rock stank to it! That Brittany is Brittany Vanessa, and she's the lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter for the rock group, The Other Brittany. Brittany sat down with us, along with her bassist (and father), DeVon, to talk about what it's been like for her growing up in a musical family, venturing into songwriting and performing, and dealing with insecurities along the way. We find out what some of her musical influences are, what her goals are for the future, and what it's like to perform in a band with her father.
