Brittany Davis brings their life into vivid focus on 'Image Issues'

Lance Mercer

For Brittany Davis, music is everywhere, and it is in everything.

Born without sight, the Seattle-based artist has used music as a way to communicate with and navigate through the world ever since they can remember. On their debut full-length album, Image Issues, Brittany lets you experience the world they way they do. They take us through layers of sounds and beats that are almost tangible.

In this session, Davis talks about making the album, which they did almost entirely on their own, from writing to mixing to performing nearly every instrument. Davis also talks about their friendship with Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard and connecting with the album's co-producer, Josh Evans.
