Do you have an ear for electro-soul? Meet Britney Stoney. Read on to see what she is looking forward to this year while performing at the Concert of Colors.
Tell me about the music you play.
I started off with just a guitar and my voice, which could be classified as soul, folk or neo-soul. Now that I’ve learned to produce and added a computer and synthesizers into the mix my music has become something I call electro-soul.
What is it like performing at the Concert of Colors?
After attending for the last few years, I’m very excited to be performing at this year’s Concert of Colors! I expect to see a diverse crowd and I can’t wait to share amazing energy with a brand new audience.
Who are your musical influences in Detroit?
Amp Fiddler, Thornetta Davis and the countless powerhouse vocalist all around the city that challenge me to push my own vocal abilities.
Who has been your biggest supporter(s) over the years?
Most definitely my mother who has been my biggest fan since birth. She has always supported and nurtured my creativity and I feel absolutely blessed.
