BrettKissel will release his new album, What Is Life?, on April 9. Released on OneRPM, What Is Life?, is a 14-track collection of original material with ten musical compositions produced by Kissel, Bart McKay, and Jesse Frasure, and four short monologues reflecting on the title What Is Life? from Kissel and his children. Kissel spoke about the new album, saying, “That age-old question is one that I’ve really focused on and centered around for this next phase of my career and for my life. And each and every time, the one thought that is always front and center for me, is doing the best we can with what we have, and making the most of our lives – living the words that I sing in the first song – and I hope that everyone who hears it not just enjoys it, but is also inspired by it.” While fans were still buzzing about last year’s Now Or Never album, Brett started looking towards his next release, but couldn’t get three words out of his head – What Is Life? The search for something “more” weighed heavily on the country star’s mind, and with the new album, BrettKissel invites fans to take a deep-dive with him into songs about love, celebration, and gratitude.
Since the onset of the pandemic, Kissel has been in the studio writing and recording for his forthcoming new album, What Is Life?. Additionally, he released “A Few Good Stories,” a collaboration with Walk Off The Earth (here and live acoustic here) and the feel-good, up-tempo “She Drives Me Crazy” here. As one of the top acts on the Canadian Country music scene, BrettKissel is on the brink of becoming a household name across the United States. Having toured with artists such as Garth Brooks and Brad Paisley, the young entertainer is no stranger to the stage.
