Brittany Brook has been on the Lane for a year and half now. She has been a great addition to our NYC team with her upbeat spirit and caring personality. Brittany enjoys the people that she works with. She love that the other Laners are “amazingly positive and hard-working!” Her favorite gig was working with Cafe Bustelo and working at the Morris Jumel Mansion with at Red Rooster. In addition to those events, Brittany recently completed a 3 month tech pop up with other core Laners in NYC. She has truly become part of the ML family and we’re so happy to have her on the Lane!
Brittany was raised in a bluegrass family band on a ranch in Montana. She now pursues live music, acting, singing-songwriting in NYC. She recently recorded her first original album! Brittany Brook and her sister play bluegrass together as the Brook Sisters in their all-female bluegrass band. You can check out their Facebook and Instagram at The Snowy Mountain Sisters. When Brittany isn’t working on the Lane or performing with her sister you can catch her acting in Shakespeare plays with her husband. They also enjoy traveling and being foodies together.
