Yay, you’re back! Welcome to BTRtoday’s Discovery Corner podcast brought to you by, Levi’s.
Meet the breathtaking solo artist Breanna Barbara. She sings what she feels, and she feels what she sings. You can’t help but experience her stories like your own when you listen to her songs.
She takes her heartbreaking lyrics, sings it with a beautiful voice, accompanied by sweet melodies and beats that are inspired by everything around–there’s a little bit of blues, there’s a little bit of country, and there’s a lot a bit of rock’n’roll!
Her first full-length album “Mirage Dreams” (shared on the podcast) was released just a couple weeks ago on No Roads Records and has already been left on repeat here at BTRtoday. It’s like an F-5 tornado picked up Kitty Wells, Robert Johnson, Janis Joplin, and Patti Smith, spun around rapidly for a lifetime, and then dissipated to leave Breanna Barbara, sitting there with a guitar in the middle of a hayfield.
The chaos of her life, from her father unexpectedly passing, to working with producer Andrija Tokic, (Alabama Shakes, Benjamin Booker, and Hurray for the Riff Raff) she know’s perfectly how to incorporate the ups and downs happening around her into her style.
So take a listen to the podcast, and go check out all her music or you’ll never forgive yourself–
