Singer-songwriter Bre Kennedy creates music soaked in rich, timeless storytelling with innate pop sensibilities. Influenced by mesmerizing talents like Brandi Carlile, Fleetwood Mac, and Bonnie Raitt, Kennedy’s delicate, raspy sound soars as she touches on profound themes around life’s messy moments. Kennedy reveals, “I usually try to have a smile on when it comes to talking about the mess of being human.”
Kennedy grew up in a musical household, taking in the greats like Tom Petty, Heart, Aretha Franklin, and Carole King. After a brief stint in LA, she hopped in her Nissan and headed to Nashville where she discovered her true musical identity. Kennedy admits, “It was a lot of searching for what I wanted to say as an artist, and somehow I found that in Nashville amongst a community of incredible songwriters who inspired me to make music I loved.”
She began playing shows at prominent Nashville venues like The 5 Spot and The Basement, where she caught the attention of industry and fans alike. In 2019, she self-released her Jealous of Birds EP, followed by 2020’s Twenty Something EP, with both title tracks landing on Spotify’s coveted New Music Friday playlist. She released her debut full-length album, Note To Self, in October 2021, which was inspired by her time alone in lockdown and after reading Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way. It marked another appearance for Kennedy on Spotify’s New Music Friday and saw her grace the cover of the Today’s Singer-Songwriters playlist.
Over the past couple of years, Kennedy sold-out a headline show at Nashville’s historic Exit In and has supported such renowned artists as Sheryl Crow, Gary Clark Jr., and Birdtalker. Media has also taken notice, with outlets like Billboard, Paste, American Songwriter and Atwood singing her praises.
