CAVIART is an urban-funk music duo comprising Dannie Phantom and V-Shawn. Hailing from Philadelphia, the duo met in the high school band sharing production tips and common likes of music.After years of collaboration and college experience Dannie & V-Shawn began to discover their own sound.
The Garden EP is the debut project, wherein all songs are self produced, written and engineered. a year's worth of loving and learning, experiencing and experimenting, and ultimately finding the music within themselves.
One major objective in music is to reach the heart. With such
relatable and soul-inspired lyrics, that’s exactly what Brittanie’s music does. Through a variety of major influences spanning from artists such as the legendary Nina Simone to the soul stirring Adele, singer/songwriter/composer Brittanie Thomas brings an organic, soulful, and refreshing sound to today’s music.
Raised in a musical family with parents who are both musicians themselves, Brittanie naturally sung throughout her childhood in the church choir, as well as with her two sisters on occasion. However, it was not until her freshman year of college that she really developed as a songwriter and soloist. For what she simply thought was a form of journaling, Brittanie started writing of the emotional and spiritual journeys taking place in her life. Her artist motto has become, “I sing because I have to; I write because I want to.” This one line sums up the responsibility she has for utilizing her God given gift of singing, but furthermore emphasizes the greater passion that she has for inspiring others through her lyrical content.
Brittanie’s debut single, “I Need You” was released in October 2012. Her debut album entitled “Two Chords and a Pen” is set to be released in the winter of 2013. You will be sure to hear music infused with the sounds of neo-soul, gospel, rhythm and blues, and many other popular genres. While it may not always be an easy task to frame the artist to one particular genre, what does remain consistent through each melody is the honesty, passion, and love for world music, and people alike.
