William Brittelle

Sound Off with Katy Henriksen


William Brittelle is a Brooklyn-based composer who enlisted a rock band, a chamber symphony and a children's chorus to create Spiritual America, an elaborate album that delves deep into his roots of growing up in what he describes as a pretty typical North Carolina home. Raised as a Christian and wanting to date the cheerleader, Brittelle secretly created his own worlds, composing songs and poems in his bedroom studio. In this episode I talk to Bill about how he formed what he describes as his genre-fluid compositional style, what it was like to work with rockers Wye Oak and being drawn equally to the Late Romantic stylings of Chopin piano ballads and over-the-top 1980s hair metal.
