LET’S DO A BLUES ALBUM !
C’est sur cette interjection de son label que Rodney Branigan empoigna sa guitare reprenant quelques titres d’illustres bluesmen afin de les coupler à ses propres compositions. Fort d’une voix chaude et de sa dextérité au manche, Rodney Branigan nous offre le disque le plus revitalisant de l’année, dépoussiérant ce bon vieux blues. Rodney Branigan s’attache aux racines et reprend donc du Muddy Waters, du Iam Moore dans ce fabuleux Nothing Better to Do.
Rodney Branigan est l’un des plus incroyables artistes que vous aurez l’occasion de rencontrer. Pas simplement parce qu’il est unique en son genre, mais surtout parce qu’il possède un talent hors du commun.
Rodney Branigan est né au Texas, à Amarillo. Il commence à étudier la guitare à l’âge de huit ans. Son père, fin mélomane, détecte rapidement des capacités chez son fils et lui transmet sa connaissance. A l’âge de onze ans, il étudie le folk, la guitare classique, puis le blues, le jazz, le rock et la pop. Dès ses 19 ans, il devient professeur de musique et enseigne la guitare aux enfants de sa ville natale. Puis, il quitte Amarillo et voyage au travers des Etats-Unis, prônant la bonne ‘corde’ dans toutes les bonnes paroisses. Celle de la musique qu’il continue de perfectionner reflétant son style unique. Celle d’un musicien doué des deux mains, de ses cordes vocales et de ses pieds!

Son premier fan reste Billy Sheehan (Mr Big).

In these words, Rodney Branigan took his guitar and covered some great tunes (Muddy Waters, Ian Moore…) that he coupled to his own compositions.
Artists are often described as having “a unique talent”; few epitomise this more than virtuosic guitarist Rodney Branigan. In fact, Texan-born Rodney’s talents as a musician are as plentiful as the many instruments he expertly plays side by side. The London based singer/songwriter masterfully plays two guitars at once or both guitar and piano simultaneously. However, it is his ability to mix this extraordinary skill with his own heartfelt lyrics and rich, soulful voice that have led to Rodney Branigan becoming one of the most followed global performers of the moment.
“The revelation of the year or even the decade” (Crossroads Magazine, France)
A passion for musical diversity has seen Rodney travel the world with his own, inimitable style of musicianship. Having toured his native America coast-to-coast, Rodney’s desire to share his fusion of organic progressive folk with undertones of rock, flamenco, classical, bluegrass and jazz have also seen him play China as well as France, Germany and Switzerland; earning him love from new fans and respect from established musicians alike.
Rodney Branigan the songwriter is a truly gifted man. Rodney Branigan the performer has to be seen to be believed. The headline act at The Isle of Bute International Guitar Festival in 2011, Rodney has featured on the same line-up as Jethro Tull and Billy Bragg; as well as electrifying the crowds at that most iconic of all festivals, Glastonbury.
“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)
As well as paying to packed out crowds of captivated fans throughout the world, Rodney Branigan’s energy for creating music he truly believes in is something he actively shares with musicians at all stages of their careers.
Rodney’s achievements as an artist and ambassador continue to gain recognition worldwide. Such recognition was highlighted when he was revealed as the ‘Face of Yamaha’, regularly featuring on the official website and endorsing the LL guitar series.
A multi-talented musician; a voice that delivers honest, self-penned lyrics with soul and feeling; a globally recognised performer; an inspiration to a new generation of musicians; an equal amongst his peers; it is fair to say that Rodney Branigan’s future is as bright as the musical landscape he is now so pivotal in shaping in 2013. –
