RODNEY BRANIGAN – “A First Class US Import!”
The Texan local who learned to play in Austin, perform in Los Angeles, craft songs in Nashville, and put it all together in London.
Music connections USA described him as “Impossibly talented” – BBC Cambridge call him a “Living Legend” – and Blues magazine France called him ‘… the revelation of the year or even decade’
‘Outstanding showmanship’ BBC Radio 2
recent EP played byTom Robinson on SixMusic, Radio Scotland and regional BBC Radio across the UK.
Vocally comparable to Jeff Buckley – songwriting compared to Jim Murray – Music Week.
Headlining the Glasto Extravaganza when Paloma Faith cancelled (shared the headline slot alongside Tom Odel) which led to being billed on the Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury Festival 2019.
Received a standing ovation at Folk East – quote “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”
