Music Review: Brennen John – “Don’t Go Alone”

Genre: Inspirational


Yesterday I was offered the chance to listen to an unreleased single by Brennen John and not only was I thrilled because of the exclusivity and consideration, but also super excited about the fact that it encouraged me to embark on this new journey of doing music reviews. Brennen is from Dallas and has been singing professionally since 2009. He already has quite a buzz on the internet and on the underground scene in the DFW. Because his single hasn’t been released yet I’m unable to do a recording of my initial reaction but I can still describe it to you guys.

Listening to this song makes me imagine enjoying a cool breeze, smiling while the sun beams down on my face, all while letting go of all my problems. I swear I played it like 6 times today. Everything from the finger snaps, melody, harmony, and the “Don’t Worry Be Happy” feel of the song puts you in a good mood. I enjoyed every single run that he did too. Sometimes people can do too many runs and it messes up the song but it wasn’t over the top, it was just right. I bobbed my head and tapped my feet the whole time. This song not only gives you hope but it also makes you want to grab someone, give them a hug and let them know that no matter what they’re going thru, you’ll be there for them and everything will be ok. This inspirational pick me up is right on time for anybody who’s going through hard times or feeling down.

If this delightful tune is a representation of more to come off of Brennen’s up and coming album I’m sure it will be a hit. Definitely be on the lookout for this guy! I love feel good music. Even though my interpretation of the lyrics was that God will always be there for you and be a shoulder to lean on, the message in the song is universal regardless of what your religion is. I wish you guys could have heard it the same time I did but you can follow him at the below links to hear some of his already released music. “Don’t Go Alone” will be available on Feb. 5th on Itunes, Amazon, Google Play, and CDBaby.

New Section For Music Reviews

Hello Everyone,

I’m excited to announce that I will now be posting music reviews on my blog! I’ve been asked this several times and I’ve always declined but I came up with a great idea today that I think everyone will love.

When an artist wants me to review their music, my friend (who is a producer) and I will record our initial reactions and then go on to critique it and give an overall rating on their music. The ratings for sure will be based on lyrics and beat, but we may add some more categories as well. I wanted to record our reactions because it goes with the theme of my blog of me being raw and very real with my opinion. I will also have a written summary on the post as well.

So artists if you’re interested in having me review your music you can hit me up on my facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/shelly80sbaby2 or email me at shelly80sbaby@gmail.com for more info.

Also, artist there will be a small fee involved which depends on whether it’s just one song or a whole album. No more than $50 at this time. Remember this will be our honest opinion so please make it worth our while.

Thanks for following my blog and be sure to share this with someone that you know may be interested. 🙂
