Today’s Daily Feature is “Possession of Pain” by American Indie Pop singer-songwriter Hadley Kennary. According to the artist, the song is “inspired by the acoustic songwriter-pop she was raised on, Hadley dives into the cathartic release that comes from allowing ourselves to feel pain – be it grief, sorrow, change, or anything in between – however, we need to so we can heal.”
An upbeat Indie Pop tune that is filled with powerful lyrics and addictive hooks, “Possession of Pain” is a must-listen. I just love the powerful lyrics about feeling pain but also having time to heal;. I also love the upbeat yet raw energy from both the instrumentation and the vocals. The power is in the vocals as it drives the melody forward with its passionate and melodic tones.

About the Artist: Hadley Kennary
Hadley Kennary is an artist/songwriter whose music is a modern mosaic of pop: shades of infectious melodies, poetic prose, and multi-faceted stories and are blended together to create a voice all her own. With her songs and her captivating live show, along with her contributions to several artists’ projects as a songwriter and background vocalist, Hadley is carving a space for herself in Nashville’s ever-growing music scene.
Kennary, appropriately pronounced like the bird, grew up moving around the US. After graduating from the prestigious Berklee College of Music, she moved to Nashville to develop her craft. Since her arrival, she has independently released two EP’s and a string of singles, on top of her involvement in several artists’ projects in the New Nashville community. She has garnered support from Nashville’s independent radio station Lightning 100 as well as reputable local and national blogs. Her songs have taken her everywhere from 2nd place in the Telluride Troubadour competition at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival to performing with Bre Kennedy at the legendary Ryman Auditorium opening for Sheryl Crow.
As she seamlessly shifts from one musical role to another – sometimes the artist, others the songwriter – Hadley firmly believes that the song is the most important and precious thread that weaves all of it together. “As they’ve come together,” she says of her own upcoming songs, “I believe now more than ever that I’ll be just fine with these crooked roots of mine.”
