Led by singer/guitarist Justin Benlolo, Los Angeles' BRKN LOVE play a classic strain of riffy, hard-driving rock & roll whose influences range from Led Zeppelin and Soundgarden to more contemporary acts like Royal Blood.
Growing up in Toronto, the music-obsessed Benlolo recognized his calling early. Dropping out of school at 16, he moved to New York with the aim of pursuing his rock & roll dream. After a couple of rough and tumble years writing, practicing, and trying to forge connections, he moved to L.A. where his career prospects began to improve. Using the name BRKN LOVE, he cut a set of demos that piqued the interest of producer Joel Hamilton. Together the two hammered out an album's worth of songs and, thanks to a full-band showcase gig in New York, BRKN LOVE earned a contract with Spinefarm Records. In advance of the album's release, they issued their debut single, "Shot Down," in early 2019. ~ Timothy Monger
