I am not sure how but I stumbled upon Brandon Paul’s music via SoundCloud but the first song I ever heard I instantly became a fan. Later I soon found out Brandon and I have mutual friends, one of my friends had a show and I got to meet Brandon myself. It was so funny because I was truly having a fan moment to where I was so nervous to even walk in and say HI! After breaking the ice Brandon is very down to earth and easy to talk to. I love and relate to his music so much so it was an easy decision on who was going to be the first featured artist in my new Artist Category.
Brandon was born in Atlanta, Georgia he moved to Dallas when he was very young but soon enough moved back to Atlanta in 8th grade. To keep it short he spent a lot of time between Dallas and Atlanta, he came back to Dallas at the age of 17 and graduated from Duncanville High School. Needless to say and most importantly Brandon calls Dallas home!
Featuring this weeks up and coming artist Brandon Paul…
Brandon Paul is a man of many talents he writes his own music, engineers, and produces, all beside makes beats. He has engineered some of our favorite Dallas artist music such as: Kev Quais, Sleaze, TayK, and Wa$teey which I love the thought of that because those are also other good artist with good music. Although Brandon has collab and helped a lot of people he pays much respect to @MoneySignPeso and @TopflightBlue for helping him the most throughout his journey.
We see a lot of artist getting caught in the hype and never really know their motives so I think it is important to mention that Brandon writes music for the odd bods at school or in the work place. He wants his message in his music to be “Be ok with being different” which we all need to be reminded of sometime.
Now onto the music, I always feel that the artist favorite song is their best song but unfortanly for us Brandon Paul’s favorite song which is Delusion, will never be released due to higher beings<<<. This is his favorite song because he feels like when he wrote it he had an outer body experience and he was more in touch with himself and feelings.
If you’re looking to check Brandon out, my favorite song is Recognize . I like to think of it as an inspirational song; it is one verse in the song that always leaves me thinking, it goes, “calling on God I think that his stalling.” I asked him what did he mean by that and he explained when he wrote that song he was in the point in his life when he was figuring things out but believes things take time and is patient with Gods timing. With that being said I asked him does he think its taking him a minute to get the full recognition he deserves. He replied with no because like mentioned before he believes in timing.
My favorite part and what I was curious to know is why Brandon doesn’t promote himself and music as much, he had the most unique answer, he asked me, ” how many facebook commercials have I seen.” I literally had to think about it but of course i’ve seen none.” Facebook has been promoted word of mouth and has had a successful outcome. Which is the point, Brandon rather his music speak for its self.
For a little fun I personally like to know what other artist influence that particular artist to see if their music some how corresponds with one another in a way. For example if SZA was to say Kehlani influences her, that would make sense because they both make music for bad ass independent women. So I ask him these question and unfortunately he responded , ” Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper and Michael Jackson. I said unfortunately because my assumption was wrong and slightly because those artist are pretty basic far as that being everybody’s favorite, I was expecting him to say Kid Cudi and once you listen to Brandon’s music you’ll see why.
Be sure to be on the look how for Brandon Paul next project titled “Good Advice” and I know we all need some GOOD ADVICE!
