Kierkegaard and Sartre are to Brynn Elliott what Rimabaud and Blake were to Patti Smith: sources of deep musical inspiration. A junior philosophy concentrator, Elliott '18 is also a working musician, traveling on weekends to perform shows with her L.A. based band. But while some might find the demands of a music career and of being a philosophy concentrator overwhelming, as Professor Alison Simmons notes, "thinking through complex--and even some bizarre--ideas in class is Brynn's power source."

You can read and hear more about Brynn's experiences as a musician and philosophy student at the Harvard Gazette.
