With influences spanning jazz, blues, retro soul, downtempo R&B, and even alt rock, singer and songwriter BOSCO began sharing her eclectic alternative R&B songs in the late 2000s. The fittingly titled Spectrum EP from 2008 earned praise from parts of the indie blogosphere and proved to be the second in a long series of EPs from the musician. She eventually made her full-length debut in 2020 with Some Day This All Will Make Sense.
Born and raised in Savannah, Georgia, Brittany Bosco was classically trained in choral and opera music before attending the Savannah College of Art & Design. There, she nurtured her passion for visual arts -- majoring in fashion design -- and formed the Big Up! collective, an interdisciplinary group also comprising fellow SCAD alum Mr. Collins (graphic designer & art director) and the Jack of Hearts (a four-piece indie rock band).
BOSCO's first official music release, 2008's City of Nowhere EP, flew largely under the radar, but her follow-up EP, the creatively packaged Spectrum, made an impression with certain music bloggers and helped her build a broader fan base. The buzz grew even louder the following year with Spectrum 2.0, a digital reissue of her second EP that included bonus tracks.
By that time based out out of Atlanta, BOSCO returned in early 2010 with the stand-alone track "Ragdoll," a rugged blues-rock tune. Unencumbered by expectations, she continued her quest for reinvention by collaborating with Washed Out bandmember Dog Bite for the concept EP Pacer. Drenched in synths, distorted vocals, and reverb, the six-track project found BOSCO at home in the burgeoning chillwave genre. In October of 2011, she delivered the sprawling EP The Scene.
BOSCO made her debut on New York label Fool's Gold in 2015 with the six-track Boy, following it with the more personal B. EP in 2017. The latter featured collaborations with NIIA, St. Beauty, and Anna Wise, as well as input from producers including REO (Beyoncé, Lil Wayne). She launched her own label, Slug Records, in 2020 with the release of her first album, Some Day This All Will Make Sense. ~ Andre Barnes & Marcy Donelson
