Review: "Break Me" - Tanner Massey

Struggles are a part of life-- seemingly inescapable and taunting, breathing on our worst fears and disguising themselves as friendly companions. With Tanner Massey's new release, "Break Me", he brings an upbeat pop song to showcase his mindset on the struggle of being pushed down by anxiety. Massey's passionate voice, paired with the pop-rock genre, lays out a dynamic field for this concept, letting the listener feel the ups and downs of overcoming issues as the song progresses.

"Break Me" provides a motivational track to our struggles-- staring down our issues in the eyes and telling them that we won't let them trample over us anymore. Massey brings forth the idea that while the struggles we face will continue to attempt to break us down, even if they've succeeded in the past-- we are not the same people. We adopt different mindsets, and we can learn from our experiences and come out stronger. He does this well through the lyrics, "and now I'm in a different place/different head, a different space/doing things in a different way," showing his success with this struggle.

Tanner Massey is an 18-year-old singer/songwriter from Oklahoma City. Showing off his skills with an array of covers, "Break Me" will officially take the place of his first original single, and his accomplishments don't stop there. In the process of songwriting, he also participates in an acapella kids group called Acapop! KIDS, co-founded by Scott Hoying of Pentatonix, and in 2021 joined 1251 Ave on a deal partnering with Universal Music Group. Tanner Massey's newest song, "Break Me" is now available to listen to on all major platforms since its release on June 24, 2022.
