"New England based singer / songwriter Brian McKenzie isn't new to the music world, but his January 26th released Bruising From the Fall is nothing short of a breath of fresh air, and so it's with great pleasure that we're getting to premiere his new music video. McKenzie often conveys his songs in story form that leads the listener to the possibility of two-fold meanings. Today's release is thought-provokingly titled "Higher Than This," exhibits his writing skills, along with video imagery that lends itself to speak of a story creating strong, reflective emotions. These observations can bring forward a self-awareness that either soothingly imparts itself to hope or leads to the somber realities of dealing with a loss and moving on. As with many of McKenzie’s songs, the perspective his fans take from his music and video work depends on where the listener is in their own world. 

Aside from the breathtaking vocals, Brian McKenzie's music is the real deal. A versatile singer-songwriter, guitarist, musician, and producer. His knowledge of telling a tale lends itself to powerful emotions which can be felt keenly in what he has developed. “Higher Than This” is only the tip of the gritty, soulful, rhythmic music to come."
