Interview with Brandon Whitley
What was your inspiration for this song? Is the video an autobiographical one of your life at home?
Yeah, more or less. One of those cases where I just picked up the guitar and that’s what came out.
Is that your usual creation process?
Yes, it is. Either that or a guitar part or vocal melody will just come to me randomly and I’ll make a tune around that.
Is this part of a larger project and will there be more amazing songs like this one coming out soon?
Well, I hope that people think they are amazing but, yes for sure! More videos and a whole album worth of music for starters. We expect it to be out before the year is up. Ky Engineerin’ mixed this song and it was mastered by Glenn Schick Mastering. Ky mixes for all the big names in rap: 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, etc.
What was the first album that you added to your personal music library?
My first album was actually American Idiot by Greenday. That album blew my mind with the rock Opra-esk theme.
What was your most recent addition to your personal music library?
The most recent albums were actually Ryan Adam’s cover album of Taylor Swift’s 1989. Odd I know, but it’s fantastic. That and The Getaway from the Chili Peppers.
What was your first live music experience? Which venue and which artist(s)?
I’ve always been around local live music. My dad was always in bands growing up, then me being a musician I was always a part of that scene. As far as big acts performing, I was a bit of a late bloomer finally getting out to see rush in Atlanta on their farewell tour. Fantastic show at the Verizon amphitheater.
If you could cover one album in your music library which would it be?
That’s tough. I’d probably have to say Stadium Arcadium from the Chili Peppers. That album was huge for me, a big influence.
What artist do you wish more people had in their music library?
I wish more people knew about Ryan Adams music. He’s another guy that’s such an influence for me. He’s so versatile. Entire country albums, which largely influence my country sound, then acoustic alternative, rock, even a metal album [laughs] he has it all.
