RODNEY BRANIGAN – Roots Americana with a little bit of Texan Blues.
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 the likes of Jack Johnson, Billy Sheehan, Frances Cabrel, Alabama 3, Angelique Kidja, Talvin Singh, Billy Bragg, Badfinger, Slim Jim Phantom, Bo Didley, Pentagram (India) Shair’n’Func and Show of Hands. He’s played Glastonbury headlining when Paloma Faith cancelled (at the request of Michael Eavis).
Americana music with virtuoso presentation, with a touch of clean comedy thrown in for good measure.
Rodney Branigan’s been described as “Impossibly talented”-Music Connections USA, and a “A Living Legend” BBC.
“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
