Rodney Branigan - 'A First Class US Import'

Texas-raised Londoner who learned to play in Austin, perform in Los Angeles, craft songs in Nashville, and put it all together in London.

A multi-instrumentalist with a rich and soulful voice often compared to Jeff Buckley. Described by France's Crossroads magazine as "the revelation of the year or even the decade".

Original blend of progressive folk, rock, flamenco, classic, bluegrass and jazz sensibilities have seen Rodney tour the US from coast to coast and travel across India, Africa and Europe, where his reputation as an outstanding live performer has led to turns supporting or collaborating with the likes of Jack Johnson, Billy Sheehan, Frances Cabrel, Alabama 3, The Temper Trap, Angelique Kidja, Talvin Singh, Billy Bragg, Bad Finger, Slim Jim Phantom, Bo Didley, Pentagram (India) Show of Hands, Seth Lakeman, Albert Lee, Andy McKee

“Leave to cross France from end to end, because this is what we call a real discovery. A contemporary musician as innovative as the Boulez was in his time” (Paris Moves)

“Rodney Branigan is one of the most amazing artists you will ever see. Not simply because he is unique, but rather because he is impossibly talented” (Music Connection Magazine)


Americana music with virtuoso presentation, with a touch of clean comedy thrown in for good measure. 

Described by Rodney as 'Full Contact Folk Music'


Recent highlights include:

Headlining the Glastonbury Extravaganza in 2018 when Paloma Faith was forced to pull out - sharing the main stage slot with Tom Odel

Absolutely packing the Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury Festival 2019

Receving a standing ovation at Folk East 

"Every year there will be one or two artists that take the audience  completely by surprise. This year Rodney Branigan was undoubtedly that artist, his name being mentioned in our feedback over and over again as peoples stand out act"

John Marshall-Potter, FolkEast
"One of the greatest guitarists in the World" Mike Harding
