Brittany Anjou is a pianist, vibraphonist, improviser, vocalist, and composer based in NYC since 2002. She leads the Larceny Chamber OrchestraThe Brittany Anjou TrioBI TYRANT, and BEWAA (traditional Ghanaian xylophone arrangements for double piano and mallet percussion). She performs heavily in NYC venues including Le Poisson Rouge, Rockwood Music Hall, The Owl Music Parlor, Silvana, the Shrine, Nublu, i-Beam, the Firehouse Space, Shapeshifter Lab, and the Stone. She has toured and performed 13 countries in North America, Europe, and Africa. Inspired by Bill Evans and Danilo Perez, she began studying jazz at age 12, eventually studying with Stefon Harris. While living in Prague, she studied with contemporary composer Milan Slavický in 2005. She has studied and performed traditional Ghanaian xylophone repertoire with master xylophonist Bernard Woma since 2006. She loves 20th century composition, 1950's film scores, free improvisation, West African drumming, Balinese gamelan, jazz, death metal, experimental, hip hop, and electronica.

In 2015 she released several original works-in-progress online, including BEWAA Vol. I, BEWAA Vol. II and BEWAA Vol. III: The Threesome Sessions with Mara Rosenbloom, featuring traditional gyil songs. Gyil is traditionally taught by a master who has been vetted by elders to present ceremonial music. The music is passed on to a student who must learn the repertoire on one side of the gyil before learning it on the other side to become a master. Brittany's time studying in Ghana inspired her to create a conversation between jazz and traditional gyil, a project which has been twice nominated for a US Fulbright Grant. Imitating pedagogy which takes place as two musicians sit on opposing sides of the xylophone (a metaphor for how music is passed on), Brittany and Mara's duo piano explorations (BEWAA Vol. III) at the piano soon evolved into BEWAA, whose instrumentation centers around pairs of duos (gyil, piano, vibraphone) within a large ensemble (BEWAA Vol. II) which has presented live in Brooklyn. In November 2015 she scored and performed original music using gyil, keyboards and percussion for a play titled Petrol Station, a work-in-progress by playwright Sulayman Al Bassam of SABAB Theater, produced and commissioned by BAM Arts and NYU Gallatin. 

Her jazz trio, the Brittany Anjou Trio, is currently finishing their debut album, Enami─Ło Reciprokataj (translated from Esperanto to "Enamored Unrequited"), slated for a 2016 full release. Additional works-in-progress include various compositions. She created a solo work of sonic exploration of vibraphone and Kyma X processing, titled Vibraphonic Kyma X Vol. I. She created an electric version of her jazz trio, Brittany Anjou Electric, featuring a quintet with saxophonist Michael Eaton and trumpeter Jackie Coleman. Music for Jazz Orchestra features her arrangements for large ensembles, while the October Sage Sessions captures tender trio improv on rhodes, drums and saxophone with effects and multi-processors. Her band, BI TYRANT, is a riot grrl experimental punk band inspired to voice LGBT and women's rights, currently working on a full length album. Bi Tyrant recently performed live for the #ShoutYourAbortion movement, a safe space event for the #ShoutYourAbortion Vol. I zine release party in Brooklyn at The Living Gallery in Bushwick. 

In 2012 Brittany transcribed the music of the Shaggs, which eventually lead her to meet the legendary Dot, Betty and Rachel Wiggin through Jesse Krakow's Tribute to the Shaggs. She currently co-leads the Dot Wiggin Band, which released Ready! Get! Go! on Alternative Tentacles in 2013, marking Dot's first album since the cult-acclaimed Philosophy of the World (1969) and Shaggs' Own Thing (1972). The Dot Wiggin Band opened for Neutral Milk Hotel's recent 2015 east coast tour.

In addition to developing her own music and those of her students, Brittany enjoys playing music of many living artists. She has worked with many artists including The Shaggs, The Dot Wiggin Band, Elysian Fields, Oren Bloedow, Briggan Krauss, Joan As Police Woman, Holly Miranda, Erin Markey, Hazel-Rah, The Friendly Bears, Monocle, Sondre Lerche, Stick Against Stone Orchestra, Mara Rosenbloom, Eve Ensler, Joseph Keckler, Karen Mantler, Carol Lipnik, DJ Dhundee, Darius Jones, Jean Carla Rodea, Elena Moon Park, Maria Neckam, Terry Dame, Dawn Drake & Zapote, Viva DeConcini, Jesse Krakow, Adam Minkoff, Ravens and Chimes, Okkervil River, and many others.
