"Branigan’s raw talent is very impressive"..."Branigan blends blues, americana, and hip-hop (yes, you read that right) exquisitely." single review

There are a goodly number of young male singer/songwriters creating some splendid stuff in the folk world at the moment; John Smith, Kris Drever and Jim Moray being just three. Oh and Sam Carter�there's four. And With his new single She Bled Rodney Branigan makes a strong case for being added to this quartet."More please Mr B"

Music Connection

Rodney Branigan calls his music ”progressive folk fusion,” but that doesn’t do it justice. Clearly, he’s invented a new genre –– one that blends rock, folk, flamenco, madrigal, classical, bluegrass and jazz –– and, it all works. Most songs are instrumentals that are driving, thumping monsters. The vocal pieces are just as strong, but not quite as thrilling. Branigan plays music so compelling that you have to listen to it. It stuns the audience and hushes the room –– even in a bustling L.A. club.

Watching Branigan play is a mind-boggling experience. You look for the hard drive, because no musician could do what he’s doing. When no assistance is apparent, you wonder if he’s possessed. Playing three instruments at once –– two guitars (a 12-string and 6-string) and a tambourine –– his musical facility is so awe-inspiring that he kicks the “novelty” tag right to the curb. This is a real musician with extraordinary talent.

Branigan starts the show with one guitar across his knee, another resting vertically against his other leg, and a tambourine under his foot. He not only plays these instruments at the same time, Branigan also uses the guitar bodies for percussion. His sounds have attracted people passing by the club, who probably entered expecting to see a full band. Every single one of them was frozen in disbelief. Jaws dropped as patrons hushed newcomers who were asking, “Who is this guy?” No one wanted to miss a moment.

Rodney Branigan is one of the most amazing artists you will ever see. Not simply because he’s unique, but rather because he’s impossibly talented. Whether this artist made a deal at the Crossroads, or has preternatural abilities is unknown.
