Meet Devin Kennedy, the singer-songwriter and producer based out of Los Angeles, California. Being raised in a musical oriented household, he started playing drums, guitar, and bass all before the age of 10. He then went on to graduate from the Berklee College of Music, where he combined his passion for writing and producing in multiple genres into a unique brand of left-of-center, California sad-pop that has become his trademark.
There’s a strong, core root of authenticity and genuineness that is a part of all of the music Kennedy makes and especially in his new single “Hurt U”. Just dropping today, Kennedy takes a vulnerable approach telling a raw, honest story about falling in love.
On the new single, Kennedy shares, “'Hurt U' is one of the most honest and genuine songs I’ve ever been a part of. My co-writers and I set out to create a whole world within this track, including specific lyrical details that are relevant to my life. The story we’re telling here is the experience of falling so in love with someone that you would bend over backward to make sure that they’re comfortable and content. This is about that person who you connect with so deeply that you know there’s nothing that could ever happen to change how you feel about them.”
Kennedy has had singles featured on major playlists including Spotify’s Soda, Chill Pop, Fresh Finds, and many many more. Since then, Kennedy has written and produced for other artists including Ben Platt, EBEN, Jake Miller, Alex Aiono and more. There’s so much more to come in the future from this bright, young talent Devin Kennedy and we’re all so excited.
