Brandon Jenkins’ Has “Magical” Time In Nashville
Performs Songs from Upcoming Blue Bandana
Appearing with just his guitar, the burly singer captivated his audience with songs from his new Blue Bandana, including “Black Mood Ring,” “Under the Shadow of the Refinery,” “Send Down an Angel,” and the title track.
“I got in town Sunday night, and was able to experience something that is so Nashville while I was here,” he said. “Over three days, I wrote with seven different songwriters. The creative energy was tremendous. It was magical.”
He also performed two songs from pal Stoney LaRue’s forthcoming album, Us Time. Jenkins’ songs, “Feet Don’t Touch The Ground” and “Til The Morning Comes,” have become standards in LaRue’s recent live shows.
Jenkins’ Blue Bandana was recorded over a two day period at producer Dave Percefull’s Yellow Dog studio in Wimberley, Texas. The album is comprised of raw, unfiltered tracks and mixes that reflect Jenkins’ unflinching songs and signature vocal, leaving the scars not many artists are prepared to expose when recording.
The final product is perhaps his finest to date and gives his fans and newly exposed listeners a unique experience of hearing an album that has been recorded with a live performance attitude capturing the emotion of the artist in his unrestrained creative nature with the flaws and mistakes others try to hide.
Known as the “Red Dirt Legend” by his fans and the Red Dirt / Texas Music community, Jenkins is known for his unique songwriting style and musicianship. Throughout his 20 + year music career he has been a mainstay on festival and listening rooms stages throughout the US and Europe, had multiple hits on the influential Texas Music Radio Charts and written hits for others.
Beginning his career as a fresh-faced kid in his hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1994 to being the bearded, tattooed man currently residing Austin, Texas, Jenkins has never strayed from writing and singing songs filled with honesty, soul, emotion, and never shied away from facing his own demons when composing songs for himself and others.
Penning Red Dirt classics like the hard edged “Finger On The Trigger” to one of the most played and requested love songs “My Feet Don’t Touch The Ground” are testimonies to his diverse songwriting capabilities and recorded performances.
