Brittany Kennell has recently released her latest single “You Don’t Get Me Stoned.” After spending 10 years in the United States, Kennell released her first official single “Eat Drink Remarry” back in February. Originally from Beaconsfield, QC Kennell moved to Boston on a scholarship to study at Berklee College of Music. Post-graduation, Kennell moved to Nashville for seven years to pursue a career in songwriting.
Kennell has now released another empowering song about being honest when it comes to love. “You Don’t Get Me Stoned” was co-written with Nashville friend Nathan Meckel and produced by Quebec’s multi-instrumentalist John Anthony Gagnon-Robinette. “You Don’t Get Me Stoned” is an upbeat track reminding us to stop playing games and say it like is. Directed by Charles-William De Melo, the music video for “You Don’t Get Me Stoned” shows a young woman on a road trip where she leaves her boyfriend behind before taking a road to new beginnings.
“If you’re not feeling it or it doesn’t work for you, say it and move on. No hard feelings, just cold hard truth. If it doesn’t give you that happiness high, that’s how you know.” Kennell says.
Halfway between Miranda Lambert and Sheryl Crow, “You Don’t Get Me Stoned” is the perfect blend of vintage country and classic rock. “You Don’t Get Me Stoned” is available now on all digital platforms. You can catch Kennell perform live on August 20th in a virtual concert with Whitebox Play. Tickets are on sale now. Kennell will also be playing the 2020 online edition of Festival Western de St-Tite on September 12th.
Music has touched my soul since day one. Whether it is performing or sitting down with some of the biggest names in music, I can always be found sharing my profoundly tender affection of music with anyone who will listen. Being a music journalist has allowed me to expand my knowledge of music and interact with some of my biggest childhood heroes. From days of radio broadcasting to sitting back, kicking off my cowboy boots and sharing my adventures with likeminded music fans online has been nothing short of amazing. Canada is full of true musical talent and I look forward to continuing to share my adventures in music with you.
