Britt Connors and Bourbon Renewal


THE BLACK BOX Summer Concert Series presents Britt Connors and Bourbon Renewal,  as an outdoor weekend concert in the theater’s parking lot.  Sponsored by Dean Bank.

Singer/Songwriter Britt Connors was born and raised singing in small-town West Boylston, MA before taking her studies to Ithaca College in NY. But, the lure of the talented Boston singer/songwriter scene and the thought that she may someday try her hand at songwriting brought her to Boston in 2001. Her acclaimed 2010 debut “The Bad Side of Good" was released under her maiden name of Britt Sawdon and blended blues, folk, and country with jazz voicings and pop sensibilities. By the time she released her second album, "Warmer Season" in 2014, she had met and formed her backing band, "Bourbon Renewal," and had written the songs with that sound in mind, with tunes that are alternately rockin', country, sweet, rootsy, and New-Orleans-street-parade. The record needed its own category, so they started calling it "Y'all-Ternative" music. Britt continued to expand into the band's sound, calling on even more of some of Boston's talented musicians for her 2020 album, "Longitude." On this third record, she slips nimbly and authentically between soulful ballads, pop-rock, and gospel-infused Americana, reminiscent of recent feminist-inspired albums by Sara Bareilles and The Highwomen.
