|In late 2010 Jon put out a call for like minded musicians to join him
and form a Hardcore Punk / Hip-Hop Fusion band.
It was Christian Bailey (Bass),
Rolen Brandy (Drums) and
Luke Morgan (Guitar) who answered that call and
Broken Chakra was formed. Meeting in a studio based
in London Bridge the band began to form their unique
fusion of original music.
By 2013 Broken Chakra had been moving around the scene building up a fan base wherever they could. It was then the band started recording the EP Fractured which was released via the Jon Kennedy Federation and Sony Worldwide digital release distribution. During the Summer of 2014 Broken Chakra departed with Rolen Brandy and by mutual contacts found Oz Hassan who had come off a European tour with The Dirty Rich a few months earlier.
With Broken Chakra going from strength to strength the band got to work with new drummer Oz and started writing new material. They headed over to Pyramid Studios where they recorded the upcoming EP Circle of Truth which was Mixed, Mastered and Engineered by Dave Pemberton.
Soon after the recording of the Circle of Truth EP and before its release on 11th September 2015 Broken Chakra underwent another change to the line-up, this time parting with guitarist Luke Morgan.
With the departure of Luke, it left the band needing a guitarist quick. It was then Oz called in his cousin Yusuf of female fronted metal band Nothing Gained who were
currently on hiatus to pick up the guitar duties.
