Britton & The Sting
Recent Tony Award winner Britton Smith uses his funk liberation band Britton & The Sting to spread the gospel of authenticity and inclusion as the bridge to radical liberation. Britton self identifies as a Black Gay Mega Pastor, set on this earth to dismantle the systems and ideas of oppression that keep us from living our most authentic lives. "Let’s get Drunk and go to Church" - the band’s anthem speaks volumes about their mission and identity. The talented pack of musicians lead their congregation with an electric passion for funk, gospel, soul, and testimony. Their shows feel like church in all of the best ways.
Recently featured in Vanity Fair, Vogue, Fault Magazine, and The New Yorker, Britton & The Sting was also featured in Paper Magazine’s “Bops Only” 10 Songs You Need to Start Your Weekend Right'' list, as well as a featured 2020 NPR Tiny Desk Submission Top Pick.
