Artist Profile: Breaking Reign

This is the first post in a series focused on local bands. The subject of this post is the band Breaking Reign.

Breaking Reign is a six-member band from Towson. They play a hybrid style of rock and hip-hop. After winning Towson University’s Battle of the Bands, Breaking Reign was given the chance to perform at Tigerfest in 2010. They opened for headline act N.E.R.D.

The band formed in 2008 when vocalist Joey Aikins, guitarist Clark Genau, and drummer Anand Viswanathan began rooming together and creating music. In 2009, another vocalist, Stephanie Blunt, was added to the band as they began playing open mics around the Towson area. Bassist Rock Warnick and turntablist Jermaine Gordon rounded out the group and by 2010, the group began to refine their sound.

Currently, Breaking Reign is working on their first album while playing venues in the Baltimore area. The following clip is a live performance of the song “Maybe One Day.”
