BRIANNA KNIGHT is a new name to us, but her people tell us she’s an R&B, Neo-Soul singer, songwriter and producer from Spring Valley, New York. Ms. K cites her influences as people like Lauryn Hill, Jill Scott and Jazmine Sullivan.
Her recent appearances at the famed Apollo Theatre brought her into contact with FOTY (From Old To Young) Records who specialize in remaking classic hits for a new generation with emerging artists. For their first collaboration, label and artist have chosen to ”remake “The Pointer Sisters’ ‘Yes We Can’. Label boss James Houston says the song was chosen as it addresses some unity issues that are still relevant within today’s society. Ms. Knight turns in a convincing performance on a funky production that is a just a little different to those neo-soul influences mentioned up top!
