Britton Sparkman hails from Birmingham, AL. Raised in the church, he was always singing and playing music when he was young. At the same time he learned piano and how to read music from his mom. In grade school he picked up the clarinet and played until high school, when theater/stage crew really grabbed him. Britton went on to study Acting at Elon University in North Carolina and he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts.
In 2004 he moved to LA to follow the Hollywood dream. But when his aspirations to be a movie star didn’t pan out he formed the band Red Circle Underground in 2006, which took him through to 2013. In 2014 he formed Righteous Heirs which was to keep him busy for the next four years.
Outside of these two bands, Britton always finds time to write his own music. Lately you can find him hosting a monthly Tuesday night at Sonny McLeans in Santa Monica and you can catch him around town playing brunches here and there. He is also working on a Premier Radiohead Tribute band, Lotus Flower and is a member of the Mercury Sound Club.

Brought to you by Westminster Arts Club & Breakwater Records. Thanks for supporting independent music!
Both hailing from the South, Britton Sparkman (Birmingham, AL) and Ming Loo (Silver Spring, Maryland) grew up with music all around. In the summer of 2013, while working at a Tech company, they met and began making music together. Constantly looking for a fuller sound they continued to look for the perfect band.
In 2015 they, along with fellow musicians Jason Lamagna & Richard Maya, formed the Rock outfit, Righteous Heirs. Blending the styles of Southern Rock, Hard Rock, 90’s Alternative, and Americana, or Hard Rock Americana for short, they began recording and released their first EP, 1.
As of the beginning of 2017, Righteous Heirs have been continually recording out of their Studio in Simi Valley and releasing tunes via Bandcamp, and almost every digital outlet you can think of. Keep your eyes and ears open, as their is much more Rock to come!
