Brina Kay was always destined to entertain, learning to play the violin as a kindergartner in the Chicago suburbs, and having a knack for the performing arts ever since. From musical theatre, to dance, to songwriting, it would be a lot easier to list the things that she can’t do or isn’t willing to try. After graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincon and spending the summer performing gigs with a band across the state, Brina Kay resolved to make it where artists go to be among the best, Nashville Tennessee.
Brina Kay wasted zero time after touching down in Music City. With no connections beyond her coworkers at the ice cream shop job she managed to get, she paved her own way. By making the most out of her resources and relentlessly pursuing opportunities, Brina Kay went from knowing nobody to being part of a community of established songwriters, releasing four new singles, and performing in numerous notable Nashville venues within her first year.
Her first release out of Nashville, “Horizon” released on March 8, 2019, charted on She Wolf Radio and was featured on Spotify’s “Discover Weekly” playlist. It introduced Brina Kay to the scene as a bold, passionate, go-getter who not only believes in the power of her dreams but is willing to put in the work and take the risks needed to make them a reality.
Brina Kay’s next two singles also charted on She Wolf Radio, with “Heat of the Moment” reaching number eight and “Into the Sun” reaching number one. Brina Kay has since been featured in numerous publications and news outlets, including Chicago’s Daily Herald, WGN News, Teen Music Insider, Vents Magazine, cityCURRENT Nashville, Indie Star Radio, Live and Amplified, the “You Can’t Sit With Us” podcast, and more.
Most recently, Brina Kay released the official music video for her song “Rome” in March of 2020, and followed it up with a bang in July of 2020 with the official video for her song “Heat of the Moment.”
During quarantine, Brina Kay has grown rapidly on TikTok due to her clever songwriting videos, going repeatedly viral and garnering hundreds of thousands of views.
Brina Kay has had multiple songs in rotation on iHeart Country Station Big 95.5 Chicago since November of 2019 and also has music in rotation on Nashville’s Radio SoBro.
