Who is Brenna Bone? The singer-songwriter joined us to chat about her journey to country music. Get to know the rising star here…
Today we get to highlight an East Coast born songstress, Brenna Bone. Growing up in Eaton, Pennsylvania, the singer-songwriter grew up a competitor. “I grew up competitively dancing and cheerleading, so I feel like I owe a lot of the performance side of me to those years of my life.”
Bone connected to music throughout her childhood, finding inspiration in pop stars like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. “I just knew from a very young age that I wanted to be on a stage.” In high school, the songstress discovered that she could carry a tune and fell in love with music. “Eventually, I taught myself how to record at home and I would release cover songs and I was just doing everything,” she shared.
Despite the fact that Bone knew she wanted to become a musician, her supportive family wanted her to go to college. “I started college and it was about half way through my freshman year of college, and I remember calling my mom and being like “hey I think I’m going to quit school. I want to play music full time.””
The singer-songwriter began gigging, playing shows three or four nights a week. “I really honestly made a name for myself back home,” shared Bone, adding later, “I owe a lot to my hometown, the support they’ve given me, the artist that they have helped me become. I owe a lot to where I come from.”
The Turning Point:
After making connections in the music industry and visiting Nashville once a month, Bone finally took the leap. Four years ago, she made the move to Nashville to pursue her dream career. “I just fell in love with country music and how it evolved over the years. I put my own rock influences in my own type of country music,” shared the singer about her signature sound.
Although she credits her parents for her taste in Rock music, like AC/DC and Bon Jovi, she discovered country music on her own. She credits artists like Martina McBride, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood, and Miranda Lambert as some of her favorites in the country genre.
“I love the storytelling aspect of country music and I love to rock out,” she shared. “I write like a country artist and love the story-telling aspect of it and I put in my own little rock side to that.” Bone’s unique blend of country and rock music has garnered her both success and recognition in the genre; however, this is still just the beginning for the artist.
So far in her young career, the entertainer has released three singles and done some collaborative projects. Most recently, she released her killer song “Break This Habit.” “The song was the first Zoom write that I had over quarantine. We wrote it last June, so June of 2020,” shared Bone.
Drawing inspiration from personal experience, the singer-songwriter shared the writing process for the song. “I remember I was going through a break-up at the time, but it was one of those situations where it was just a bad relationship to even be in,” she began. “I remember talking to my friend over Zoom, and I was like I don’t even know what I’m going through right now, he feels like a bad habit that I keep going to.”
The more Bone and her co-writer discussed the idea, the more the song just flowed out naturally. “We wrote that song in an hour and a half,” declared the singer. Written by the entertainer with Matt Mulhare, the tune is a heartbreaking song about not wanting to quit a relationship. The tune is one that anyone can relate to.
According to Bone, she has another new single coming in early January and a collaborative project with fellow country songstresses coming before year end. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for the budding star!
