NEW MUSIC: BRE KENNEDY | CONTROL
Nashville-based alt-pop singer Bre Kennedy has been quickly making a name for herself in the vein of singer/songwriters. Most recently, Kennedy debuted her 2020 sophomore EP, "Twenty-Something," and she is now back, building to her new full-length album, Kennedy has returned sharing her latest single, “Control." The track brings Kennedy’s songwriting into newly anthemic territory with the addition of a towering string section, transforming her lyricism from contemplative to free-wheeling. A powerful crescendoing chorus and subtly catchy melodies make for a track that sports both a plaintive folk tenderness and a defiant pop side, all brought together by Kennedy’s deft vocal abilities. Throughout her music, she touches on profound themes of life’s messy moments and self-growth. She has been featured in notable publications such as Billboard, Atwood Magazine, Paste Magazine and American songwriter. The singer has also opened for renowned artists such as Sheryl Crow, Gary Clark Jr. and Birdtalker. In 2019 she released her acclaimed, buzzworthy EP Jealous of Birds, making her a definite artist to watch. With her second EP released the following year in 2020 Twenty-Something, she continues to build that momentum. Her new album is expected to be released in August 2021.
