During the day and occasional weekends, I work in marketing, and one of the most important things I’ve learned in that field – which goes against my every instinct – is that repetition gets results. I want to believe people will click on that amazing thing the first time they see it, but the truth is, sometimes it takes seeing it 3 or 7 or 26 times before we take action.

Luckily Hadley Kennary understands this, and so when she got little more than a distracted “try later” reply from me after her initial booking request, she actually did just that. And then she did it again, after which I finally had a free moment to listen to her stuff and realize she’s fan-friggin-tastic and immediately beg her to come play Memphis. Because she’s not only a shockingly well organized self-employed musician, she’s also a gorgeously rich vocalist and sharp, insightful lyricist. She’s just a few years out of Berklee College of Music but has the harmonic and emotional range of a lifelong road warrior, and now that she’s based in Nashville, I have a feeling we’ll all be hearing much more of her (and hers) very soon.


Hadley will be coming by on Saturday, January 27th, with doors at 7pm and music starting at 7:30. We’ll be at one of our pop-up listening rooms in the Midtown/Downtown Memphis area; the location will be announced when tickets go on sale (at least 30 days in advance).
