Brianna Kočka is a singer-songwriter from Minneapolis, MN. She has shared the stage with Marc Cohn, The Cult, and has had her music featured on General Hospital and 20/20. Evoking the instrumentation and mournful harmonies of Americana pioneers Gillian Welch and Alison Krauss, as well as the classic Country vibes of Nashville in an earlier time, her songs are both autobiographical and fantasy, documents of facing phantoms, and fleeing them.
In early 2019 she released her new single, "Kindness," a straight ahead modern Country song reminiscent of the sounds of Jason Isbell and Kacey Musgraves. Her previous album of traditional folk songs, Dreamlife, was released in 2018 on Suntanman Records. Brianna is currently in the studio wrapping her next album, with hopes to be released in late 2019.
Brianna primarily plays as a duo with her musical partner Jimmy Barnett. She also has an ensemble of musicians for full band shows consisting of Adam Wozniak (bass), Mike Gunvalson (drums), and Zack Warpinski (Pedal Steel Guitar).
