Brenn

BandRockPop

Brenn is fireworks. Enigmatic, intense, and provocative, yet elusive, sensitive, and dreamy, Brenn has created what critics call an "Ultra lush melodic sound all their own," with melancholy falsettos to emotional screams, chiming yet driven guitars and Keith Moon-like drumming with hard pulsing bass

Biography

Hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, the enigmatic sounds of Brenn run the gamut to create a diorama of guitar-driven rock that is as sweeping and grandiose as it is grounded and approachable. Having recently release their debut LP "The Fury And The Sound", Brenn is gathering attention throughout the country with an unmistakable sound that has been recognized by the likes of Nylon Magazine, as well as a performance on New York’ Fearless Music TV (which described them as "one of the most original acts" on their show).

With dynamic synths, piercing riffs and dramatic vocals, Brenn’s musical vistas sweep from the anthemic sounds of Muse, U2 and Radiohead to the dreamy soundscapes one might find sprinkled throughout Sigur Ros or M83. Timeless structures abound throughout each song, combining vintage instrumentation with flourishing layers in order to create a truly unique musical experience.

REVIEWS

“With lush keyboards, soaring vocals, and atmospheric electrics, Brenn is stealing the attention of the Nashville music scene and the hearts of each new listener.”
Adam Sherrett, Nylon Magazine, NYC

"Brenn has a distinct pop rock sound that is sure to please the ears."
Fox’s Fearless Music Television, NYC

“Contagious sound, first-rate songs, and great to work with..they certainly have what it takes to become a household name.”
Jami Osiecki, NBC talent buyer, Philadelphia

"They have a great sound, the students really enjoyed the show, and they couldn’t be nicer to host."
Boyd Jones, Campus Program Director
Winthrop University

"It was a complete joy to work with them for our annual Otterbein Homecoming Concert and they put on such an amazing show that our students are still talking about. They made the concert planning experience enjoyable and we would be glad to work with them again."
Laura Norman, Campus Prog. Board President Otterbein College

“Brenn was fantastic to work with for our Spring Cotillion... made our event effortless.”
Tiffany Adams, Assistant Director of Student Life
Brenau University

"While there's currently a heavy dose of energetic "sugar high" rock music coming out of middle Tennessee, most of this music will last about as long as the sugar high that fuels it. Brenn, however, is creating music that has depth and longevity"
Vincent Wynne, listennashville.com

“Atmospheric pop-rock, a-la U2…very intimate.”
Taxi

"Fireworks. That's what Brenn reminds me of...enigmatic, intense and provocative – not your everyday bottle rocket or sparkler – but rather a pyrotechnics dream of spirals, comets, bursts and crackles."
Jill Garett, nashvillerock.net

“Brenn is not only talented but also business-minded…as a result their single, “I Like You”, received a couple dozen spins per week in the weeks leading up to their concerts.”
Abby Summers, Morning Co-Host Alive 95 Radio
