“There’s something captivating [Brandon Tory]”
Maybe it’s the way he pays tribute to places that have left an imprint on him—Boston (his hometown), Atlanta (a place he says is where he “saw the vision”), Miami, Los Angeles. These spaces—in some shape or form—have informed his sound, and he folds their influence in seamlessly for his most recent release, Yaga Season. “My first project SHINE was the recap of a guy going from struggling, doing open mics and being in the studio 24/7 in Atlanta to moving to Los Angeles, being exposed to Hollywood and meeting Timbaland. Yaga Season was a recap of everything we did after that. The parties, the shows, the love…on Yaga Season I took it further”.
It makes sense. Yaga Season is a more high-energy affair compared to his earlier release, SHINE. It has within it a striking confidence—a celebration of well-deserved success. It alludes to the idea of “making it,” but there is nuance and depth to the release—bits that allow listeners moments of reflection. “The response has been crazy… I want my listeners to pregame to it, party to it, but also catch the subtle messages I always have in my music about character, loyalty, and life in general.” It’s a win-win—a catchy, up-beat, and truthful expression of self, featuring stellar production by FΔDE (you might recognize him from his work on T R A P S O U L), Brandon himself, and more.
Take a look at some of Brandon’s work.
