Nashville transplant Kelly Hoppenjans was already comfortable playing guitar and writing songs in her tweens, but now at age thirty, she’s embracing a less traditional coming-of-age narrative. Between channeling energy from the classic riot grrrl genre and teaching music therapy at Belmont University, Hoppenjans’ number one priority is empowering women and cultivating robust feminine identities in light of ongoing oppression.

The exponentially confident Hoppenjans is set to turn up the volume to eleven on her highly-anticipated first full-length, OK, I Feel Better Now, out October 18th. And today, just a month after putting out her last single, Kelly Hoppenjans shares a song that reckons with the “crazy girlfriend” stereotype (to the extreme), “If I Had You”!
