BreAnna talks her journey with music, influences and her debut full-length

The Epiphany full-length from BreAnna blew us away with its memorable blend of pop/indie/R&B. We had to ask about her journey with music so far.

If you haven’t listened to Epiphany from LA artist, BreAnna yet, it’s time to treat yourself to a listen. Its sticky hooks, vivid imagery, and clean production had us humming around the office for more than a few days.

We recently had the pleasure of catching up with the artist to find out what she’s been up to. We found out about her thoughts on the music industry, her favourite artists, and what’s to come. Take a look.

HAPPY: Hello there BreAnna! Where do you find yourself today?

BREANNA: Currently living in Los Angeles, working as a theatre teacher/choreographer, and writing music

HAPPY: How did you get into music? Was this always a dream for you?

BREANNA: Music was never something I had to learn. It just came naturally. I remember finding Songs in the Key of Life by Stevie Wonder in a yard sale my dad was having, and I listened to that CD until I knew every word. That album really inspired me to start writing and helped me expand my curiosity in composing music myself. My mom has always told me I was a star from the moment I took my first breath, so it’s not surprising to see me still following that dream.

HAPPY: What is an aspect of the album you are particularly proud of?

BREANNA: Epiphany is my first full-length project, so I’m extremely proud of that! I’ve loved the challenge of acquiring the knowledge needed to do some music production and learning the ins and outs of what it takes to build a song. I also just love the album as a whole. It’s something I can proudly listen to over and over again.

HAPPY: Who were your inspirations that influenced the albums’ sound?

BREANNA: I’m such a huge fan of the music made by artists like Stevie Wonder with super melodic sounds, lots of voices, and interesting instrumentation. But I’m equally just as much a fan of John Mayer and other guitar-driven musical innovators. What they all have in common is their ability to paint such a clear picture of their story, and I admire that. Tori Kelly is probably one of my biggest inspirations, especially when it came to the structure of this mixtape.

HAPPY: You’ve had the most incredible career in music! What has led you to LA?

BREANNA: I have been afforded so many opportunities through music- from travelling the world singing pop music to performing show tunes in New York City. I see moving to Los Angeles just as another step towards where I need to be, especially in the music industry.

HAPPY: If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?

BREANNA: I wish it were less about the music charts or how much money an artist can revenue and more about the talent. Real talent makes real Music. Real music can heal the world.

HAPPY: What can we expect from you in the future?

BREANNA: The real question is, what won’t you be expecting from me. No matter what it is, it will always be authentically BreAnna, and nothing short of perfection.

HAPPY: Cheers, BreAnna!
