Brynn Elliott Preps for Homecoming Gig on Oct 23rd
Over the summer we spoke with a talented New England singer/songwriter named Brynn Elliott when she performed at House of Blues in Boston, MA opening for Lifehouse and Switchfoot on the Looking For Summer Tour. During our interview Brynn mentioned that she was planning a headline gig in Boston, MA for the fall. Details on the show have been announced, and it’s coming up on Monday at Brighton Music Hall. For those not familiar with Elliott, she’s a national touring singer/songwriter while also getting a degree in philosophy at the prestigious Harvard University.
Elliott is a refreshingly atypical pop artist whose studies and personal experience influence much of her songwriting process, contributing to a new genre of pop music, Smart Pop. Elliott has played some 70 shows per year since moving to Boston, opening for such artists as Brandi Carlile, Alanis Morissette, and Grace Potter.
Last summer an opening performance for O.A.R. found her performing for thousands of people at Colorado’s fabled Red Rocks Amphitheatre, the last stop on her summer tour, after which Elliott flew back to Cambridge to join her classes already in progress. When I asked Brynn how she was able to balance touring and her studies she told me “It’s very difficult, but it’s good, it keeps me busy and I’m the kind of person who works well under pressure, so I feel like if I didn’t have that pressure of balancing both, I wouldn’t write the kind of songs that I do.” Elliott is set to graduate from Harvard this spring after which her intentions are to remain in the Boston Music Scene going at it full time.

For her upcoming show, Elliott has partnered with charity organization Y2Y Harvard Square. Their official website describes them as a student-run overnight shelter, that employs a youth-to-youth model to provide a safe and affirming environment for young adults experiencing homelessness. Y2Y guests have opportunities to collaborate with service providers, other youth experiencing homelessness, and student volunteers to create sustainable pathways out of homelessness and develop skills for long-term success. Y2Y provides opportunities for both guests and volunteers to become the next generation’s leading advocates for youth-driven solutions to homelessness.
