Emerging alternative pop artist BRE has released The Revolution, an encouraging call to action that references current events surrounding women’s rights. A powerful, hard-hitting, and eye-opening activism anthem, The Revolution will get listeners ready to fight for change. The single can now be streamed worldwide on all digital platforms.
BRE opens “The Revolution” by defining her sense of urgency with a spirited and profound beat drop, followed by the fitting opening lyrics “Land of the free, don’t look like it to me”. Mixed by Carlos Gallardo-Candia (Tommy Walker) and mastered by Dale Becker (Doja Cat, Justin Bieber), the self-written and produced track features a pounding, thunderous beat backed by a sampled chorus of Katerina Gimon’s track “FIRE”. coupled with Mike Kindle’s electrifying guitar riffs.
Carrie Rappaport’s influential and haunting backing vocals perfectly complement BRE’s powerful sound and lyrics. “This song is a protest song speaking out against the politicians who use their religious beliefs as justification for taking away women’s rights,” BRE affirms its stated goal of standing up for women’s rights.
This song was written specifically about the Roe v Wade coup, but it’s about women’s rights and the importance of separation of church and state when it comes to legislation. Due to the hijab/enforced modesty rules, this is of great relevance to the current crisis in Iran.”
Determined to drive the change it hopes to see in the world, BRE has not only talked about it, but has been proactive in using its platform as a tool for progress. Taking her political support to the next level, she is donating 50% of proceeds from The Revolution to a personal cause, Beto O’Rourke’s campaign for Texas Governor running against anti-choice candidate Greg Abbot.
“Texas must make a big decision in choosing its governor: move toward hope and progress with a candidate who cares about his constituents, or stagnate with the damaging and increasingly extreme views of a governor who is leading efforts against the rights of its citizens. Beto O’Rourke is the only way forward.”
BRE started her love of music as a child and would do anything to be the center of attention. BRE moved from Illinois to Los Angeles with her parents and family of six and initially got her start in acting, but quickly realized that music was her true passion. Adept at piano, acoustic guitar, bass and drums, she played open mics and wrote music as often as she could, recording several albums under different names.
Later, while spending time in Austin, Texas and New Zealand volunteering for a non-profit organization, BRE missed making music and performing. Moving back to LA, where she currently resides, BRE began producing her work from her bedroom studio, including her album From Beginning to End under her former stage name Bre-L. After releasing her debut single “Becoming Human” under her current title and taking musical inspiration from well-known artists such as Florence + The Machine, Stevie Nicks, Banks, Grimes and Dolly Parton, BRE has found her sound and place in the industry as a powerful vocalist and copywriter
