Plenty of factors have helped shape Brett Hellings, the eponymous frontman of Hellings, into the artist he is today: years of living in and playing scenes like New York, L.A., and Nashville, constant collaboration with talented players, and countless hours studying and honing his craft. But through the entire arc of his journey, one thing has never wavered – Brett Hellings is a wholehearted purist of Rock’n’Roll.

Motown was Hellings’ first introduction to music at an early age, thanks to his dance-loving parents. Influence from artists across the entire genre manifest themselves now in his soulful vocals and signature onstage moves.
At age fourteen, his older brother let him tag along to what would ultimately become the catalyst to his entire career: a Stone Temple Pilots concert. There was no stopping it from that point. Zeppelin, the Stones, AC/DC, Aerosmith, the Black Crowes, and endless other classic rock bands became his biggest inspirations. Hours spent with guitar, keys, vocals, and songwriting ultimately led to a move to Los Angeles to start a band with the same brother who introduced him to rock. It was there that Hellings cut his teeth as a live performer on the Sunset Strip and cemented his passion, especially for songwriting and performing.

After a recent stint in Nashville, Hellings is back in Philadelphia, bringing with him a completed album featuring some of Music City’s best players and a distinct sound. Well-crafted songs and infectious rhythms in every track bear witness to his long love affair with Rock’n’Roll on his newly released record, RIDE. The aptly titled album is a nod to Hellings’ ride, and is available on all streaming platforms and wherever you buy music.
