Music with a Message: Journey with L.A. based Singer- Songwriter Breanna Kennedy

Singer-Songwriter Breanna KennedyLeaving her heart on the soundstage

One of the most powerful ways to reach a captive audience is through music. Although it is a beloved pastime, music can also bring awareness to social issues that impact our lives with such enormity that they cannot simply be ignored. What is even more spectacular is when an artist, who as a vessel is able to share with fans an intended message while utilizing their inherently, artistic gifts.  An artist that has chosen to share her personal journey with fans is L.A. based singer-songwriter Breanna Kennedy.

Breanna recently released her single “She’s Falling”, an emotional song about her sister Destiny who took her life at the very, young age of 23. The song, now available on iTunes, is powerful and elicits a profound response towards a serious issue that touches many a person regardless of social, racial, religious, and economic boundaries. Kennedy not only demonstrates her tenacity and resilience  as a young musician, but she also courageously ventures where few artists dare. Musicians of this variety reach within their own inner-workings to share with fans their personal experiences. It is these experiences that enable such musical geniuses to influence, inspire, and bring awareness to the issues that affect humankind.

Although Breanna Kennedy is a youthful 21 years old, much like singer-songwriter Adele, her sound is well beyond her years . The remarkable fact is that both artists effectively deliver deeply rooted songwriting and soulful vocals in a contemporary framework while touching fans across multiple age groups. “She’s Falling” consists of highly advanced songwriting and storytelling that is not only intensely personal, but well crafted.

The song has an acoustic feel with an Americana ambiance intertwined with Breanna’s smooth vocals. Though the lyrical content of the song is emotionally heavy, the musical accompaniment is actually scored in an uptempo manner with some dynamic transitions which work effectively to convey the overall theme of “She’s Falling”.  Breanna approached the song in such a way that it inspires listeners to have a heightened awareness while also paying tribute to her own sister, making an extremely personal connection with fans.

“She’s Falling” is a song that really hits home as it is a breathtaking snapshot into the many experiences that often influence and inspire artists along their musical walks. What is even more incredible is the fact that a young artist is willing to open up her heart and share this experience with the world. It is an act that is to be commended, respected, and most definitely appreciated.

According to the CDC, suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for youth and young adults ages 10-24; these startling statistics absolutely cannot be ignored. Help Breanna Kennedy share her message of inspiration and awareness with the world by supporting her album project on Indiegogo.

Out of This World with The Hubs’ latest EP ‘Welcome to Beyond’

The Hubs The New Alternative

Across the musical soundstage there are young, new masterminds creating their own poignant moments in history. It is often impossible to categorize the sound of these new adventurers as they often extrapolate elements from multiple sound sources, influential predecessors, and new age experiences. They are a creative and rambunctious variety that are full of youthful spirit and a zest for life not seen since the early ages of rock. While stylistically the new wave of sound stays true to the conventions of alternative music; the new breed of rocker ventures far beyond the norm to establish themselves as a musical mainstay.

One youthful and energetic band that is steadily engraving their moment in history is known as The Hubs. Based in Bakersfield, California, The Hubs are set to unleash their latest EP ‘Welcome to Beyond’, a compilation of new age, and 90s inspired alternative tracks. The album features 8 noteworthy tracks that demonstrate the band’s diverse influence and musical prowess. Likened to bands such as Weezer, The Hubs delivers a progressive sound that is far beyond their years.

The EP opens with a raging guitar and drum performance called “Rocketship”, prepping listeners for an intense adventure. It is the perfect introduction to set the tone of the record which consistently delivers an unprecedented amount of masterful compositions, quality vocals, and avid songwriting. Tracks such as “Come Closer” is reminiscent of Modern English’s “I’ll Melt With You” while “Plastic Heart” feels like an early Nirvana sound illustrating the band’s skillful ability to capture the conventions of an alternative album while appealing to a newer generation.

The Hubs -Welcome to Beyond EPLyrically speaking, The Hubs are clearly experiencing an evolution. ‘Welcome to Beyond’ handles a myriad of themes and relatable topics. Although the EP consists of 8 tracks, listeners are able to get a feel for multiple experiences in one neatly packaged delivery. Tracks like “Rut” and “Beyond” are just two of the unexpected surprises included on the EP that offer a different tone and feel. Of course, we cannot give away all of the secrets tucked away in this  record, but fans will take delight in the playful and lighthearted energy that The Hubs bring.

Hailing from sunny Bakersfield, California, The Hubs’ members include Benjamin Montoya on Vocals and Rhythm Guitar, Tyler Ochart on Lead Guitar, Adam Vargas on Drums, and Alberto Torres on Bass.
