You may not know of Britney Jane yet. That’s because the R&B/soul singer-songwriter, like many of us, has lived much of her life in the background wanting to break through. The musician has been a backup vocalist for some of Denver’s most prominent up-and-coming acts while spending her recent years feeling trapped in a toxic relationship. All of this while navigating life — and the music industry — as a black woman. Now, Britney Jane has shattered any and all barriers that have held her back demonstrated in the groundbreaking debut single “Blossom.” With the complex and sophisticated song, Britney Jane also has a message for black women — “I really want us to know how special we truly are.”
Britney Jane’s previous romantic relationship took a toll on her mentally, breaking her down into a place of vulnerability. “That love for a woman, for myself… it wasn’t there,” the musician explained. “I became camouflage — I blended into his life and forgot about my own.” From that pain came “Blossom,” an anthem revolving around realizations — the realization that Jane had power, strength and in her own words, “I look too damn good to be dealing with this.” Like a flower flourishing, blooming and photosynthesizing, Britney Jane is going through a period of growth, pouring love back into herself and her talents.
“Being a black woman I feel like there’s a lack of respect for black women and even just women in general,” Britney Jane continued. “I want everyone to be able to connect to my music — not just black women or black trans women — but all communities,” she continued. “We are all queens and we should be valued, protected and loved — there’s nothing wrong with who we are.”
