BRANDYN BURNETTE, “Run”
If the rest of the songs on Brandyn Burnette’s upcoming debut album Emanate are anything like “Run”, or even better than it, we are all in for one of the tastiest treats of 2018 that has been a long time coming. While these blog pages are a pretty good document for Brandyn’s progressing career since 2014, nothing will go down better than to hear his story (to date, anyway) in music.
“Run” is the start of a series of autobiographical songs which form Emanate. It’s also about what led to creating Emanate – in this case, grabbing the opportunity to become an independent musical entity unto himself after his record deal with Warner didn’t work out, and abandoning a NYU scholarship that wasn’t leading in the right direction for him. Surrounding himself with amazing people, including his intuitive love and co-writer Molly Moore, breaking down genre walls with Cosmos & Creature too, leading to dance club play all over the world by many famous producers/DJ’s, and of course remaining his talented progressive soulful rocker himself, Brandyn makes songs that are tangible, hopeful, and affecting, to share with you.
“Run” has a knowing confident vocal, a great arrangement and instrumentation (yes, more Ryan Svendsen trumpet!). Seize that moment and make possibility into reality. Watch the video above for any more convincing that might be needed.
