Press Quotes

"The Lena Dunham of Jazz. Comedic. Blunt. And about time. The eclectic arrangements of Brittany Anjou are a bouillabaisse of Paris Bohemia, Prague Beatnik, 1980s punk electric funk, 1990s avant-garde jazz, and 21st century feminist poetry. Her circular triads are evocative of Northern Ghanaian Gyil (which she also plays) and Stravinsky; a proper calling of the ancestors to join us in a new revolution to politically castrate everyday sexism, and the Jazz heteropatriarchy. "  - Maya Mesola, Jazz Notebook, NYC 

"Sounds like Ahmad Jamal meets reggaeton." - Ben Perowsky

"Two of possibly the best musicians in Seattle, D’Vonne Lewis (drums) and Evan Flory-Barnes (bass), join forces with Seattle-raised but NYC-based pianist and composer Brittany Anjou. Like Vijay Iyer, Anjou is a philosopher-musician. She obtained a degree in jazz performance and philosophy from NYU, and plays not directly or effusively but reflectively. Hers is a jazz about jazz, a music about music."

 - Charles Mudede, The Stranger, Seattle

"Brittany Anjou explores Ahmad Jamal to Bikini Kill, singing quirky protest anthems between original compositions inspired by Bartok, Stravinsky, Red Garland and McCoy Tyner." - The Royal Room
