Brianna Blankenship: “Church”

Break out your Sunday best because Pennsylvania-based singer-songwriter Brianna Blankenship has us feeling love in the air with her debut single, “Church.”

On this cheeky track, the country singer likens the love between two people to the love congregants feel when they go to church. Blankenship’s lyrics are a glittering sea of sweet and clever metaphors. “This love is holy water and I’m diving in,” Blankenship passionately proclaims. 

Blankenship’s passion for singing began when she used to perform in her school’s chorus and musicals. Her music combines country sensibilities with a nice dose of pop punch. Her lyrics are filled with vivid imagery and classic storytelling techniques while her pop-inflected melodies have just a hint of rock n’ roll. Her charismatic vocal performance and charming lyrics take this country-pop number to new heights. 

Blankenship’s fresh take on this genre shows that the artist has a knack for revitalizing tried-and-true musical techniques. We know this star-on-the-rise has more tricks up her sleeve and we can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
