Brittany Flickinger grew up in a small town just outside of Boston but spent a lot of time in the city modeling. Brittany first found her passion for modeling while she vacationed with family in New York City. With singing at the forefront of her passions, Brittany has always wanted to model and began modeling professionally at 18 years old. Brittany freelanced without an agent and actually did pretty well landing gigs for houses like Johnny Cupcakes, Betsey Johnson and Arden B.
Modeling wasn`t enough and she found a great music managing company that put together a girl group with Brittany as the lead. A girl group was something she never saw herself taking part in. After a while Brittany finally said "yea... I`m not really into this music so much. I`m into Thrice, Underoath, a totally different scene and I really want to be in a real band." Next, she found and recorded with Mike Capputo but again, he wanted her in a girl group. That`s when Brittany started looking for a band she could front. She sang in a hardcore band for about two weeks, and tried a jam band to no avail. Then on a whim, Brittany posted an ad online in the Las Vegas classifieds thinking she was posting it in the city of Boston. She struck luck when a pop band responded and showed enthusiasm for Brittany to join the group.
She wrote lyrics to their instrumentals over the internet. Everyone liked what they heard so they kept with it. They suggested Brittany come and try out for a week and see how she liked it. She jumped on a plane a few weeks later not even knowing who they were. To her surprise she ended up doing a three song demo, music video, and a photo shoot with them that same week. "Don`t worry about living here we`ll take care of everything and we`ll be on the road and signed by the end of the year so it`s no big deal." They all became best friends instantly. Everything seemed perfect, it was awesome. As they say, "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."
So she became stranded; no more money, no car, no family. Brittany`s life was back East. She figured she`d forget the band and do her own thing for a while. This is where Paris` show came in. Maybe then, the guys in the band would be ready to do something. However, her band raised an ultimatum, "It`s us or nothing!" The show sounded cute but a little weird to Brittany but since she didn`t have a best friend anymore she figured she`d try for a new one.
While Brittany was gone for the duration of the Paris Hilton show, her former bassist left all of her stuff in the front hallway and the band replaced Brittany with a new girl to front the band singing Brittany`s songs. Uncovering people`s personalities, gaining rivalries, and getting tossed through betrayal really opened Brittany`s eyes. She`s glad to be all the wiser and with her new found wisdom and a head straight on her shoulders Brittany looks forward to future progress in her musical career.
