Throughout history the number 7 has always been considered a powerful and sacred number. With the release of his seventh CD justly entitled “VII” Brandon Jenkins takes his place as one of the most soulful and prolific songwriters around today. Standing well over six feet tall, shaved head, and tattoos blazing, most people would assume that Jenkins is a hard rock act or at least a professional wrestler, but nothing could be farther from the truth. As part of the "Red Dirt" music scene in Oklahoma for more than a decade, he has honed his skills and made a name for himself as one of the premier performing songwriters around. Now living in Austin, Texas Brandon has assembled an incredible band and undertaken a hellacious touring schedule wearing out stages across the United States and Europe. On the heels of his critically acclaimed CD “Down In Flames”, which produced 2 top ten singles on the Texas Music Charts, Jenkins has recently signed with Texas based Smith Music Group and is making big waves with his first single, “Why Did We Ever Say Goodbye” staying in the top ten for four months and the second single "Call of the Road" making it’s chart debut on June 11 at #27. Difficult to corral into one musical style, Jenkins’ music seems to reach far beyond any one type of classification, though Country, Rock, and Blues are all categories that his diversity allows him to be a part of. Soulful, poetic, rowdy, and fun; he explores all these things and more, sometimes simultaneously, and does it without the least bit of pretension, he writes songs the way they’re supposed to be: real stories about the heart of living that everyone can relate to.
