Bonus Episode: Bre Kennedy


In this bonus episode of Salute The Songbird, Maggie chats with indie musician Bre Kennedy backstage at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, where they were both performing. Maggie and Bre discuss what it feels like to be back and Bonnaroo after 3 consecutive cancellations, as well as back on the road. Bre discusses the introspection she did during and emerging out of the pandemic, and how she got herself back to writing new music.


Singer-songwriter Bre Kennedy creates music soaked in rich, timeless storytelling with innate pop sensibilities. 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. At the end of 2021, Kennedy signed to Nettwerk Music Group. She is currently working on new music and will join Joy Oladokun on her Spring 2022 tour. She has cemented herself as an artist to watch and one of the brightest voices out of the New Nashville music scene.
