You can go see this MVMT member on 11/3 at Boom Concepts (see the flyer!)

Brittney Chantele is a woman of many talents, as she not only is an artist, she’s also a storyteller and activist. She uses her music as a platform to inspire movements and to give people the courage to stand up for what they believe. Chantele’s music not only has infectious music but a very important message behind it. We are extremely excited to welcome the newest member of the MIC MVMT, Brittney Chantele! Let’s look behind the scenes...

Give us your introduction and origin story, please!

Brittney Chantele is a singer-songwriter, storyteller, poet, and activist. She aspires to inspire individuals with her music/poetry emotionally, mentally, and physically. Brittney describes her style as, “movement music,” or, "movement poetry," meaning, it can begin or carry a social movement.

Born in Staten Island, NY, and quickly moving to Pittsburgh, PA where she was raised, Brittney developed an admiration for several styles of music. Some of her foundational artists were Michael Jackson, Nas, Amy Winehouse, Bob Marley and Destiny’s Child to name a few.

Brittney says her current inspiration comes from artists such as Nahko and Medicine for the People, Rising Appalachia, Dead Prez, Kendrick Lamar, Mick Jenkins, & Luka Lesson.

What do you love most about your indie music/creative career?

I love that I speak on social justice and environmental justice issues while incorporating my own personal stories. To me, this is important because there is a specific interconnectedness of daily human life and the current state of the Earth.

What are some of your struggles as an indie musician, and how do you hope the IMBM can help you?

My current struggles are finding producers that I mesh well with that are accessible to me. I'm hoping MIC can showcase my art to potential producers who then may further contact me if they would like to work with me.

Any advice for up-and-comers who want to do what you do?

Go for it! Don't let any negative comments from others hold you back - you were put on this Earth for a reason - if you want to put your thoughts, feelings, and ideas out there via art, DO IT!

What is your indie music/creative career’s Definition of Success, in spirit of the IMBM?

I see success as empowering individuals to start and carry movements to make our communities more peaceful and safe.
