Brittany Allen

S1E10 - Welcome Homecoming

Brittany Allen is a multi-disciplinary artist, with an impressive body of work as an actor, who is now also emerging as an exciting composer to watch. Her first score was for the critically acclaimed indie What Keeps You Alive (SXSW ’18) which was named a NYTimes Critic’s Pick, one of Rolling Stone’s Top Ten Horror Films of 2018, and hit the Top Ten films on Netflix. Allen’s score was released by Lakeshore Records. She followed that up with her “soul-tugging score” for Z, one of AMC Shudder’s most watched films of 2020. Most recently, Allen scored the fan favorite “Feral” episode of American Horror Stories, the anthology spin-off of the iconic AHS franchise. She also has just completed her second season scoring the CW / Netflix anthology Two Sentence Horror Stories. She scored Selfie, which was recently acquired by Netflix after premiering at SXSW 2020.

Allen crafts moving, dark, melodic themes and fresh, edgy sounds, leaning deeply into the character’s emotional journey. As a songwriter, her proclivity to dark material meets her pop sensibility. As an actor, Allen is an Emmy-Award winner, and she was most recently celebrated for her iconic turn as Popclaw in Amazon’s The Boys. Allen will next be seen in the Netflix original, Grendel.
