New Jersey-based acoustic-indie singer-songwriter, Brandon Saxon, embodies the neo-indie-musician completely, recording all of his own music onto his laptop in his bedroom. This simple little fact has profound implications: Gatekeepers are becoming utterly irrelevant. And it’s wonderful.
“Recording songs in my bedroom…”
With an etheric, light and airy vocal timbre, and an articulate, impossible-to-fake finger-style, Saxon has recently put himself officially in the music game with the release of his debut, solo single, the absolutely wonderful, Star Star Child.
“With so much going on in the world and so many weird changes for everyone… the right song just hits the spot.”
Lovely prose, skilled musicianship, and a cool electric slide-solo at 2:49 are all topped-off by a sparkling vocal finish in this—what we hope—is a prelude to an album in the near future. For us, it’s an instant 2019 Top 10 candidate…
“My star star child how did you fall
A million years ago
I heard the bang I jumped the worm
I saw stars aligned again
I know where you began
Strap on my telescope
And I look up to the sky
I see my star star child
Dancing with the the skies
Dancing with the the skies…”
Passenger meets early-era John Mayer…
