Kelleigh Bannen is an artist I’ve been pulling for the last few years. She’s had some great songs put out at radio, but none have been able to break through.
I guess her first official single, Sorry On The Rocks, came out in 2012. Man, does time really fly. That was the song that turned me on to her music. It was a great song.
Earlier this year she released a new EP. I think she released it independently. It’s got some fun uptempo songs on it including this new one.
Welcome To The Party – Kelleigh Bannen
On the surface it would seem like this one is just a normal party song. From the title you might think that you’ll be rocking around with friends and chilling. That is part of what’s going on here, but it goes a little deeper than that.
For me, the song is about people getting together and finding friends even if the entire group might be down on their luck. Sometimes life can make you feel like you’re the only one going through something. Maybe it seems like everyone else has the love of their life while you’re single. Maybe it seems like everyone else has kids while you’re still working on it.
Whatever it is – you’re never the only one. This song is about the power of finding others that are going through what you’re going through. You can make some great friends that way. And maybe it’ll even turn into a fun party.
This is a good song. I’m curious to see if it’ll catch on.
