After grabbing an acoustic guitar at 12-years-old, Bre Kennedy found herself performing throughout Los Angeles and then relocating to Nashville, where she built a buzz with show stopping live performances around town. She began independently sharing her music, including her Jealous of Birds EP [2019], Twenty Something EP [2020], and Note to Self [2021], before signing to Nettwerk in 2022 and releasing her Clarity EP. Consequence of Sound hailed Kennedy's work as “contemplative and vulnerable,” and Guitar Magazine exclaimed, “Bre Kennedy is bound to be a household name for all the right reasons.” Beyond headlining sold out shows, Bre has performed alongside Sheryl Crow and Gary Clark, JR., joined Joy Oladokun and Paper Kites on their 2022 headline tours, and made her Bonnaroo debut. As she drove over 10,000 miles over the course of 2022, Bre reached a personal inflection point on the road and began writing new music. Collating her experiences in the studio, she collaborated with producer Davis Naish and cowriters Morgan Nagler, Mikey Reese, and Emily Hackett. Bre introduces the upcoming set of songs with Scream Over Everything (Side A), the first half of a larger body of music coming later this year. On it, she discloses her innermost thoughts, fears and dreams with a novelist’s attention-to-detail.
