BENEFIT FOR THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
Born October 1, 1975, in Charlotte, North Carolina, David Britt is a Country Music Recording Artist and Singer Songwriter. Although he began playing violin at the early age of three, David did not start writing music until he was thirty-five. Up until that point David was a top national junior tennis player, an ACC Tennis Champion at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and briefly, a Professional tennis player on the Men’s Pro Tennis Circuit. After hanging up his racquet, David started in the world of Commercial Real Estate. Several years of stellar success had been under his belt when the market crashed in 2008. Although Charlotte, North Carolina was somewhat insulated, the crash still took a toll on many brokers and developers. David, like many in his field, all of sudden had a fair amount of time on his hands. That’s when he began to write music. It was a life-long dream that found its way back into David’s life. After teaching himself to play the guitar, David booked his first studio session with Producer Jason Scavone, and put together his first album, self-titled, DAVID BRITT, which was released in 2012. Since that time David has released 2 other albums, COUNTRY FLOW, and IT”S ON NOW, along with several other singles. David’s 4th album LOVE SONGS & LULLABIES will be released February 14, 2018. David has written over 2000 songs. Over the years David has made national news due to his philanthropic work in and out of the music world, and does many charitable concerts a year. He is also written and published three books. In October of 2017 David traveled to New York City to perform at Gretchen Carlson’s book launch for her Best Selling book, ‘Be Fierce.’ where he performed his hit tribute song to Gretchen, ‘Be Fierce.’ All proceeds from the song benefit Gretchen’s ‘Gift Of Courage Fund,’ which helps underserved women. David’s mentor, and one of his closest friends, is Joe Bonsall of the Country Music Hall of Fame group, The Oak Ridge Boys. Although David is full time in music, he is still heavily involved in commercial real estate with his company, David Britt Real Estate, LLC, where he is a broker and developer. David has two beautiful children. They reside in Charlotte, NC.

‘Roots, Rock, Blues, Rap, and Country influences merged together to form a toe tapping and head bobbing show you have to see! When brothers and friends starting combining their decades of musical performance and passion with Charlotte’s booming social scene, they discovered a recipe for music mash-ups that fans had never heard before. They took traditional bluegrass instruments, added beat dropping drums, a screaming hot ’52 telecaster, and hypnotizing lyrics and harmonies, and found their fans dancing, drinking, and grooving along like no other band in Charlotte!
Their life-long beloved friend, Sabrina Watt, booked the band for their first paying gig at a Cystic Fibrosis charity event. Without an official name, she dubbed them ‘The Accidentals’. As years went by, ‘The Accidentals’ formed a monthly happy hour every second Saturday at Sugar Creek Brewing Company on Southside Drive. Every second Saturday from 2:00 – 5:00 loyal fans came out to get transported from the mundane to the madness!
As ‘The Accidentals’ got tighter and the grooves got deeper, the boys headed to FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama to record some original tunes. There the history, the magic, and the famous water from the Tennessee River created a sound they are proud to call their own. During the production process, it was discovered that another ‘The Accidentals’ band existed and the boys were forced to change their name. They looked to the 2 things that brought them to that point (Sabrina Watt and Southside Drive) and Southside Watt was born.
Sabrina’s life ended far too soon, and she is deeply missed. Southside Watt will always remember her impact on this world, and a portion of the proceeds from our shows are donated to Cystic Fibrosis research in her honor.
So come out and see ‘The Greatest Band that Never Practices’, and be a part of what will truly be a unique, one of a kind show, that is not found anywhere else!
