Bree Whitworth knows there’s nothing better than the Real Thing in her emotionally charged single — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Real Thing is a new take on the ’80s/’90s pop sound, with catchy guitar riffs dripping with reverb, thunderous percussion, hypnotizing synths and soaring vocal harmonies. As the Kelowna singer-songwriter puts it, “It’s a song that takes you in a different direction.”
The subtleties embedded in the music are just as meaningful as those in the lyrics. The uplifting tone of the instrumentation seamlessly complements the raw approach Whitworth takes in telling a story about commitment — and committing to being the most genuine version of ourselves with our partner.
Whitworth decided to take her creativity into her own hands as the world began changing with the pandemic; she also saw the end of her relationship just as the world slipped into isolation. Today, she adds Real Thing to an already impressive catalogue of music that includes three albums and many collaborations. Recorded live at 12th Street Sound on Canada’s West Coast, Real Thing resulted from music magic. The song came together in collaboration with engineer Anthony Cenerini (Little Miss Higgins, Burnt-Project 1) and jazz bassist/producer William Chernoff.
