How it all STARTED

Bryanna is a mixed Afro Latina who was born in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. Bryanna's musical abilities originated with her biological family and were nurtured by her adoptive family, creating a household that was never quiet and full of music. Her passion for music was evident at a young age and while her parents encouraged her to try a wide variety of activities, it was clear that she was destined for the arts -- the only reason she played soccer was for the orange slices at halftime. She started playing violin at three, piano at five, trumpet at ten, and french horn at twelve. Bryanna caught the theatre bug when she was seven, after seeing a production of The Sound of Music, and has not stopped singing since. 


Bryanna traded in snow-capped mountains for the great lakes, and currently resides in Cleveland, Ohio as she earns her Bachelor's of Music in Music Theatre from Baldwin Wallace Univeristy. Upon graduation she plans to follow her inner 11 year-old's dreams and move to New York City. 


When not working, or writing for Her Campus, Bryanna loves to tee off at the local mini golf course or go for long walks with her two puppies Mojo & Pepper. She loves to get lost in new music on Spotify, write poems she will one day publish, and can often be spotted curling up with a good, yet predictable romance novel (Happy Place by Emily Henry is her favourite). Follow Bryanna on Instagram @bryannacuthill to see what she is up to on and off the stage. 


Bryanna has performed at venues across the globe, including the Kings Theatre in Edinburgh Scotland, Carnegie Hall in New York City, Blossom Music Center in Cleveland Ohio, regional theatres from Vermont to Illinois, and many performance halls in her home town Calgary,  Alberta, and her second home in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario.
