“The story of ‘Next To You’ comes from the fact that both Cory and I had experienced brutal breakups at around the same time,” singer Brittney Shields explains. “The kind of breakup that makes you question your sanity at all hours of everyday. I remember the day I lost the person that I forever regret losing. I felt like my whole world was just spinning out of control. I had to constantly see pictures of him and his new girlfriend all over social media, and it KILLED me inside. I think most of us can relate to feeling like our heartache is turning into madness. Cory and I decided to take our madness and turn it into something beautiful. It was pretty cathartic for both of us.”
Oh, Be Clever blend elements of rock, soul, and electronic music with raw, emotional lyrics that tell stories of love, struggle and empowerment. The enormous voice of singer Brittney Shields combined with the refreshing state of the art sounds of multi instrumentalist Cory Scott Layton come together to create the catchy, upbeat sound that is Oh, Be Clever. The Salt Lake City duo, however, haven’t always enjoyed perfect harmony. Prior to forming Oh, Be Clever, Brittney and Cory were members of separate bands that loathed each other to the point of physical violence. Late one night after a show, a fight broke out in the parking lot between the two bands. Having always admired each other, Shields and Layton fled the scene to create their own music, and Oh, Be Clever was born.
