Brett Kissel: We Were That Song [Concert Review]

Brett Kissel played TWO shows at the Danforth Music Hall this Family Day weekend in Toronto- and to my surprise the We Were That Song tour has been the biggest tour yet in Canadian Country music!

As always Kissel and his band put on a great show, and made the weekend extra special for 5 year old Grayson who got to join the band on stage during “Raise Your Glass” to receive his very first real guitar. Kissel explained to Grayson that when he was six years old he received his first guitar and figured Grayson will need one soon as well. Check out the clips below:

The next memorable moment was hearing Kissel tell the story behind his single “I Didn’t Fall In Love With Your Hair” a heartfelt song about a married couple dealing with the wife’s battle with cancer. Written by Rachel Bradshaw, Kyle Jacobs and Billy Montana this song hit close to home as Kissel’s mother has faced cancer multiple times. During the show Kissel shared that this single raised over $50,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society. Kissel has said of the song “It’s a special song for my mom and I think it gives a lot of hope to a lot of other women across Canada. Whether you’re young or old, it’s a song that has such a strong and positive message and I’ve very proud to be the guy to bring that message to the people.”

Another point that really stood out was how appreciative he is of his tour family- it was really special to see each band member get recognized with such pride and admiration. I had no idea many of the band members have won several awards like Canadian Country Drummer of the Year, Guitarist of the Year, etc. The band is made up a a group of very talented musicians and Kissel makes sure to share their successes with his fans which we thought was very cool.

The night ended off with Kissel’s newest single “Anthem” which left fans leaving the venue with all smiles and good vibes to head out and enjoy the rest of the long weekend. Check out the video for “Anthem” below:
