Brandyn Burnette: Stand Down (2150 AD) Ft. LaRaisha
I’ve recently been introduced to Brandyn Burnette; an LA based artist, writer & producer originally hailing from St. Louis. His latest single Stand Down featuring LaRaisha is nothing short of brilliant. The song, according to Brandyn, was written about a dream he had when he was 18 and just starting out his career as an artist. "I was on a writing trip for Sony & woke up from a crazy dream about the end of the world. I made it through this post apocalyptic chaos & was rewarded at the end of the dream by traveling to the year 2150- in the future." Being a native of Missouri, Stand Down speaks to the current events happening around the world- and that's the type of artist the music industry needs more of.
"I hope the people that hear Stand Down interpret this record openly & personalize the message to their day to day lives. My only stand on the current issues of the world is that we are entering a time of spiritual warfare. Wherever you are, whatever your social status- spread the love."
Now in his early 20s, Brandyn is mixing pop, soul and electronic music into a cinematic soundscape that is guaranteed to get stuck in your head. After previously writing hits for countless international artists, as well artists such as Jake Miller and working with industry legend Diane Warren (Michael Jackson, Whitney Huston, Mariah Carey, JLO), Brandyn is ready to step into his own legacy and has potential to be a name worth remembering.
If artists like John Mayer, Ed Sheeran, Coldplay and Jon Bellion excite your ears, you’re sure to love Brandyn Burnette.
Keep an eye out for his upcoming EP Made Of Dreams due out this Fall. I expect big things to come.
